Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
Thank you for being a part our lives. We wish you all the very best ~ may you find joy this week and the rest of the year with your family, friends, baking and cooking. May you find comfort if you have lost loved ones or are far away from home and family.
My gift to you are our family favorite simple recipes to enjoy throughout the holidays!
Snowflake White Hot Chocolate
Creamy, silky white chocolate with your favorite add-ins is a nice change...
Eggnog from the store is too thick, too rich for me. Try making your own using a stove-top custard method that makes this drink safe for everyone.
White Cheddar Cheese Ball
Sharp, tangy white cheddar, cream cheese, sour cream and green onions, is popular combination that even the pickiest eater will love.
Peppermint Bark Fudge
The best of both worlds: White chocolate and traditional semi-sweet chocolate, this two layer fudge is smooth, creamy and peppermint-y. A great way to use left-over candy canes.
Candied Cinnamon Almonds
Love nuts? Then you'll love these vanilla/cinnamon almonds that are SO easy to make on the stove top for 10 minutes, then popped into the oven for 10-15 minutes. The aroma from your kitchen will be amazing!!
Andes Mint Topped Brownies
Another simple, yet mind-blowing recipe. Find the Andes Mint bits in the baking section and sprinkle them on top of your fresh-out-of-the oven brownies for a real treat!
This casserole is not an egg-y one, since it uses cubes of bread...more like a French Toast texture. It is loaded with cheese, is easy to make the night before and pop into the oven for an hour before the kiddos wake up. You can top it with cooked sausage, but our favorite is the maple flavored bacon that is available at Sam's Club.
