Special Occasion

Recipes for a special occasion are often extra decadent and extra delicious. For Christmas I love a creamy eggnog pavlova or a cozy peppermint mocha. For Easter it’s all about the lemon meringue cupcakes.

 

There are recipes perfect for any special occasion, ranging from Valentine’s Day (hello chocolate lava cake), St. Patrick’s Day (all the whiskey), Easter, Halloween, to Thanksgiving and of course Christmas.
