I am loving Whiskey Week, glad you all are too!
Jason and I were out at a holiday party last night, and there was a bar set up for whiskey tasting. How perfect is that – we tasted a few good ones, and I am going to hunt one down. I may have to extend Whiskey Week…
This recipe has been made before.
Actually, I have made this several times. The first couple? Too sticky sweet. Oops. The first batch had to be chiseled away from the pan, like I was making hard candy lollypops alongside the tofu. Reducing sugar, adding [click to continue…]
Good to know people are totally in support of Whiskey Week!
Perhaps each month should start this way… January could be Irish Cream Week, and we can all just add it to our coffees each morning?
At any rate, Whiskey Week continues, and I am bringing in a creamy cool concoction – ice cream is not just for summertime around here. Oh if you only saw the inside of my freezer right now…
This is a spiked spin on the classic vanilla bean flecked cream – simplicity at its finest. and I just love those vanilla bean flecks.
These recipes use a 10 year straight rye whiskey – WhistlePig.
I like this one – I like rye in general – because it is milder than some others we have. Jason is a fan of what I call [click to continue…]
I am way too excited about this recipe.
because of THIS:
So Delicious recently released a coconut based whip topping, and it is good. I was able to preview a bunch of their new product and holiday seasonal items (fun stuff coming soon!), and this Coco Whip is what I was most excited about. You can find this in stores now. I have two tubs for this week alone.
Before this even landed on my doorstep, I knew exactly what I would make.
Growing up, our holiday table always included a jello salad.
Now, I have that same question many ask – why is this called salad?
Whatever it was originally called, back then it was my favorite. I have updated the original recipe from my Grandma Z, adding a pretzel shortbread crust and … well I don’t call it salad.

’tis the season!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may know I am already starting with the holiday decor.
I am already making lists – parties, events, and the food that will go along with each one! I have some new ideas in mind, to go along with my festive favorites.

As the holidays get closer, I will be sharing my new recipes with you. Until then, I have collected a few recipes that I plan to bring along to holiday parties, and share on my own party tables.

Yesterday we had some weather come through.
I woke up at 5, ran down the stairs with Rosemary, looked out the window to see a yard covered in white.
The snow was all gone by 9.
A non event, really. A media storm.
Friends in higher elevations had several inches of snow, lasting all day long. I ventured outside with my camera, but never drove – so the clicking of freezing rain I heard all day actually could have been something. We stayed safely inside.
I made soup.
Purple Potato Soup.

Today is National Happy Hour Day.
I celebrated a day early.
I popped some bubbly.
I sugared some cranberries.
Jason has been getting crafty with his cocktails lately – he will be sharing recipes soon – and we have Aperol on hand. I like it because it is less sweet than other orange liqueurs, I think it also has rhubarb flavor?
I like tart. Less sweet.
Instead of using simple syrup, I added [click to continue…]
This is one of the most flavorful dinners I have had in a while.
…and because Jason has this thing with squash – as in he won’t even try it – I had the other half for breakfast the next day. Yep. I cannot be the only one who does that? Savory breakfast for the win.
It kept me full and happy until 2 in the afternoon. Goodness.
I will definitely be making this again, and stuffing Jason’s half in a portobello or over a salad. He has to try this filling, and so do you.
Super excited to share this recipe with you, from my friend Kim’s new book, Super Seeds – The Complete Guide To Cooking with Power-Packed Chia, Quinoa, Flax, Hemp, & Amaranth.
In addition to this recipe, I have already tried the Cocoa Cookie Batter Power Bites, and the Crunchy Topped Pear Muffins, which were both amazing. The recipes I have dog-eared to try include Pineapple Fried Quinoa, Lemon Basil Quinoa Salad, and the Pesto Veggie Burgers. Yum, right? Just a [click to continue…]
