If you're anything like me, you like to eat, can't cook to save your life, adore holidays, and always try to sneak dessert before the main meal.

In my book, dessert is the best part and always worth the calories. Don't get me wrong, my momma's stuffing could bring about world peace, but the star in my book is always our homemade apple and pumpkin pies. These are the only two dishes I can make without burning down the house and they are always a crowd pleaser. But this year, I want to change it up.

As I scroll through Facebook daily, I see all kinds of holiday baked goods that are just screaming for me to attempt them. I tend to save the pages and ideas, and I scoured my saved recipes to share just with you!

If you love apple pies, pumpkin anything, chocolate, cheesecake, and cinnamon rolls, look no further.

Again, if you're anything like me, you also can't understand a recipe when it's just words and measurements. To make your holiday baking as simple as possible, the videos can be watched and the recipe will unfold right before your eyes.

Forget the Tupperware at home for these desserts are sure to go the first time around.
