From pumpkins and spooky Halloween decorations to Hanukkah candles, Christmas lights and hot cocoa, the holiday season is a lively time of year.

As a child, my excitement came from watching holiday cartoons and anticipating the arrival of Santa and presents.

Hey Everyone! I'm trying something new here. I recorded a video of myself cooking and wanted to share it with you. The recipe is a modification of the classic roast with mashed potatoes.

Trust me, he would have called me out if he did!

I love lemonade but I don't love all the sugar that's added to store bought lemonade, and I definitely don't like when it's sweetened with artificial sweeteners. Yuck.
In this recipe I used powdered stevia. Stevia is an herb 150 times sweeter than regular cane sugar but doesn't raise your glucose levels so it's fairly safe for diabetics and other people watching their sugar intake.
My mom has a rather ferocious love affair with garlic. In fact there wasn't a single dinner from my childhood that didn't include garlic in it. If you like garlic then I dare you to try her chimichurri recipe. I promise it will keep the vampires away.
