Every year I go crazy getting things *just right* for the holidays, especially when it comes to cookies and treats. I have a weakness for chocolate and think that everyone else should enjoy it like I do, too. Thankfully my neighborhood Giant Eagle is close enough to home and work to help when I’m shopping for the ingredients I need.
It’s that time of year when the evenings are cool, the orange and purple lights are hung, and the kids are amped up on sugar. These are the days leading up to our first fall holiday, Halloween. Perhaps you and your family are gearing up to hold a night of pumpkin carving to celebrate.
Thanks to a post over at Newlyweds Blog, I got the idea to make (what the kids called) Dinosaur Easter Eggs which then turned into deviled eggs for our family party on Sunday. Here’s how it went down, in a slideshow version!
(Hard boil eggs + gently roll to crack the shells carefully + food color + vinegar + water + overnight in the fridge + peel = dinosaur eggs!)
It’s about time for me to share with you one of my new favorite recipes. For Thanksgiving, I made Skinny Taste’s Make-Over Corn Casserole. It was a hit, and will definitely be part of our Christmas meal. Healthy, yet oh, so good. I can’t help but demand that you give it a try.
With 12 days and 27 minutes to go until the DEFINITE arrival of Baby #2, I can’t think of anything else but what treats I want around the house for Christmas! Here is the list that I made this morning that I would like to be responsible for making (in addition to this, I really hope my dad gets to make his mom’s Butter Cookies and Pizelles)…and pictures and details will follow as I get around to making these:
