Simple Sugar Cookies for Santa

As some of you might have seen via Instagram, I've partnered up with Treat Street to create a few fun holiday recipes featuring their super cute treat toppers. The toppers can be found in stores coast to coast including Michaels, Target, Kroger and Walmart.

I'm honored that Walmart asked to use one of my recipes on their in-store display and website, too! If you happen to be in your local Walmart store and see it, snap a picture and use #KKRecipeFound and you just might win a prize!! 

Here's the recipe for you to try for yourself -

My 2014 Gift Giving Guide

Tis the season to hunt down all those fabulous finds to give to your loved ones. Granted this hunt has become even easier thanks to online shopping. It seems like every morning I wake up to at least 50 emails in my inbox promoting the BIGGEST BESTEST SALE OF THE YEAR UNTIL TOMORROW!

I decided to throw together a list of my must-haves that might be able to spark a few ideas and help you cross off your shopping list before Santa hops in his sleigh!
Oh and an added bonus, almost all of them are under $100! 

For The Foodie

2-Speed Hand Blender

An essential in all kitchens! Helps make the creamiest potatoes, the yummiest whipped cream, and super simple salad dressings. Best part, it's less than $30!

Designer Apron "The Kathryn" with Monogram
Shameless self promotion here, but oh well! Adorable handmade aprons, available in 4 styles and include a free monogram!

This thing is my go-to in the kitchen. There are so many nights I'm craving pasta (ok, all nights) and I can make a healthy swap by creating some veggie "noodles". Oh and this one is less than $40!

Peppermint Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe

There's something a little awkward about drinking hot chocolate at the holidays when it's still 80 degrees in Los Angeles. So why not take those flavors and turn them into an icy treat!

This recipe is for one glass of chocolatey goodness!

1 1/2 c of whole milk
1 package of hot chocolate mix
1 peppermint candy
3 cups of ice
whipped cream (canned or fresh)

Heat 1/2 c of milk in a saucepan. Add in hot chocolate mix and peppermint candy. Don't worry if the candy doesn't fully dissolve.

Transfer hot chocolate to a blender and add in the additional cup of milk and the ice. Blend baby blend.

Pour into a tall glass or goblet and top with whipped cream!

Garnish with shaved chocolate, crushed peppermint or fun candy toppers!

I don't know about you, but as great as the whole Thanksgiving meal is, sometimes you just need a little nibble to hold you over before that turkey hits the table. Am I right?

I created the collection above on to share some great ideas that will help set the pace for the food to come. Check out this lightened up version of Spinach Artichoke Dip to kick things off.


1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and strained
1 cup chopped artichoke hearts
1 1/2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp garlic poweder
1 tbsp onion powder
sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Mix thoroughly and break apart any spinach clumps.

Chill until you're ready to serve.

Don't forget to grab a bag of Naan Crisps to serve with your dip!
