Pull out those ornament and star-shaped cookie cutters! The holiday season has arrived, and it's time to get your bake on! From cake pops to cutout cookies, these 10 cookbooks will help you create festive confections that you can serve at parties or gift to friends and neighbors. Even if you're a pro at piping intricate icing decorations, there's always a new pastry to learn that shows off some serious holiday spirit. Take a look at our sweet offerings.
You may use olive oil in your cooking every day, but how much do you really know about it?
If you're like me, the answer is not much, as I discovered after attending a dinner held by Olive Oil From Spain. At the event, I had the opportunity to taste a number of olive varietals, from arbequina (buttery and delicate) and cornicabra (zesty) to hojiblanca (bitter almond) and picual (grassy), that showed off the oil's wide flavor range. But I also learned something else: until this point, I've been misinformed when it comes to olive oil. Here are four facts about olive oil that might surprise you.
When it comes to baked goods, looks can occasionally be deceiving. Take this cranberry-swirled gingerbread cake: slightly unassuming in appearance, it's an unlikely contender for crowd favorite when placed side by side with luscious pies, or an elegantly frosted chocolate cake.
That is, until the first bite is consumed. The batter, deeply spiced and spiked with bittersweet molasses, is a strong contender for my favorite gingerbread tasted to date. A hefty swirl of sweet-tart cranberry sauce simply gilds the lily, firmly placing this cranberry-swirled gingerbread in my cake hall of fame.
Despite its unconventional nature, chances are, this year it'll have a place at my Thanksgiving table, and many more times throughout the season to come. I urge you to look beyond aesthetics and do the same.

Can't get enough pumpkin this season? The Pilot's Daughter has a way to use the flavor in a delicious muffin.
This past weekend, my roommates were out of town, so I had the apartment to myself. So yes, some moments were lonely, but when I woke up Sunday with a kitchen to myself, I was in my happy place. On the menu this weekend was pumpkin muffins. Light, fluffy, and muffiny goodness is the only way to describe them.
