Instructions
  1. Combine everything into a large sauce pan and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. After you can either remove onions and smash tomatoes or do what I personally prefer and blend everything together using a blender of some sort.
Recipe Notes

This marinara sauce is my absolute favorite, not only is it delicious on its own, you can add other ingredients to it, to give it a different flavor and spin, such as roasted garlic, basil, peppers, truffle oil, anything you want, but I urge you to try the sauce as is first, you won't be disappointed.

Recipe Notes

This Christmas candy is super simple and you can add different toppings as well, like crushed peppermint, chopped nuts, sea salt... ANYTHING! you can also substitute the graham crackers with saltines, we've tried both and they are both equally delicious. How can you go wrong with sugar, butter and chocolate, you really can't! 

Mom’s Cheese “Straws”

Cheese Straw Recipe
These are a holiday tradition in our home. My mom makes them every year and they go quicker than we can pull them out of the oven. Ours don't look like straws because we opt to roll out the mixture and cut them so they look like little crips. However that doesn't make them any less tasty, I promise.

you can use a cookie press to get the straw for if you want or you can roll the dough out and cut it into any shape you want. It's best if you chill the dough mixture if you're going to be cutting it, makes for an easier process. this is the perfect recipe to get the kids involved (if you want) give as gifts or just keep and eat all yourself.
