No-Carve Painted Pumpkins
It’s time I get honest with you: I don’t like carving pumpkins. I love picking out pumpkins. And I love roasting up a pan of pumpkin seeds and eating pumpkin-flavored sweets.

You could even keep these out on the table throughout the year, customizing the colors to match your table scape. They're really easy, too. To get started, you'll need sheets of craft store felt (two sheets for each rabbit), spray adhesive, scissors and either a sewing machine or a glue gun. Oh, and this felt rabbit template right here:

St. Patrick's Day and cocktails go hand-in-drunken-hand. Although green beer has always been the drink of choice for the suddenly Irish on March 17, I think it's time we class it up a bit. To get in the spirit, I decided
Amaretto-Soaked White Chocolate Cherries
Looking for something to keep you warm through winter? Here's a deceptively impressive dessert that will wow the crowd: amaretto-soaked cherries, dipped in white chocolate. Keep the kids away from these! They're flavorful, they're not too sweet, and they pack
