This week on Danielle's Digest you'll see what I've been eating, a special lunch I made for Ryan, one of Asher's favorite things to do around the holidays, and some fun videos I've been working on!


There's a new cooking video up on my YouTube channel for Shortbread Cookies! Click HERE to watch!


So happy that crab season has arrived! Ryan was working from home one day this past week so I made him this special treat. I love how simple a crab dinner can be.


We had friends over for appetizers and I made a big appetizer spread. Watch the video HERE to see what else I served!

I have been celebrating this one's birthday for 15 years and somehow each year he just keeps getting better. ❤️

gingerbread-house-ashers-favAsher's favorite thing during Christmas is building gingerbread villages (not just 1 house, a whole neighborhood! Haha). So I created a grain-free version for Celebrations so he can actually nibble while we build!

I can't wait to see pictures of your houses as you start to build them!
