Christmas is over, and I’d say it’s no time to get soft, except that’s kinda the name of the game this time of year.
How bout, “It’s no time to slow down.” At least in the kitchen.
Enter – my mini collection of 3 recipes perfect for you New Year’s Eve table. A cocktail, blinis, and goat cheese truffles.
Decadence – unrestrained or excessive self-indulgence. Yeah, that’s this.
One truffle is all you’ll need to send you into bliss, but no one will judge for indulging in several more.
Procrastination. Over-extension. These things do not mix.
And they are… me.
I bring this up to illuminate the fact that there are Grand Marnier/cranberry/chocolate truffles that required more chilling, rolling, and dipping time than I allowed in my morning. They were supposed to be today’s post. And are not. Hence, this post.
Seven delectable dishes share the plate, but who are we kidding, you’ve picked your fav – the one you want to be the last bite of the meal. The closer.
This is such a morsel.
Tart, light, buttery, and palate cleansing, – this bar is like sorbet in cookie/bar form.
Ronald Weasley. Jessica Rabbit. Carrot Top. Tori. Beer. Conan.
Just a handful of the things that the word “ginger” brings to mind.
A request for ginger snaps sent me on a Google quest for the perfect recipe. I love molasses and I love ginger, so when I stumbled upon this recipe that took both of these guys seriously, I knew I’d found the ONE.
We’re going to take this nice and slow. Nobody gets hurt… not on my watch!
With the shopping, the decorating, the hustle, the bustle, the cooking, the baking, the go, go, go… it’s easy to go nuts, it’s easy to land yourself in the Emergency Room with a bagel cutting knife injury, or overdose on flour ingestion. Not this year!
And so begins it. Three ingredients. Minimal prep. Minimal cook time. Ultimate delight.
Day late, dollar short. Week late, day early. However you spin it, there’s a method to my madness. Well, not really a method, but a reason.
This post was intended to happen last week, and the week got crazy. So why not post it tomorrow, on a Thursday? Because something beautiful is about to happen friends… booze and cookies!
I’m launching an all out Holiday – two weeks of cookies and boozy cocktails, starting tomorrow. But I love this recipe so much that I couldn’t just let her fall by the wayside. So here she is, in her beer, cheesy, glory!
When I looked back on all my football foodie posts, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t touched on potato skins! Like anyone would pass up a hollowed out shell of the mighty carb queen, filled with cheese, bacon, and other sinful delights!
