Easy Christmas Goodies
When it Christmas time, it's time for great snacks and goodies! I use baked goods and jam and jellies as Christmas gifts. I have a few people who call each year just to make sure that I'm making their favorites. Here are a few easy recipes that will help you get in the mood for Santa.
It’s that time of year again. The mornings are chilly, the afternoons are balmy and it’s time to think of all of the things that we should be thankful for. If I started a list, it would take me all day to list all of the blessings in my life. But, food would definitely be pretty high on the list.
How to Use Dried Apples
I have 5 pounds of dried apples. That is a lot of dried apples. I love to snack on them but not quite that many. I have bagged some of them up for the freezer but even if you freeze them, you need a plan for how to use them. So, I started searching for recipes that use dried apples.
Comfort food is different for everybody, but the deep satisfaction each mouthful brings is the same. To warm the body and the soul on a chilly day, give your favorite comfort foods a delicious makeover with recipes that use Wisconsin-made Grand Cru Gruyere cheese. Gruyere is a great melting cheese with lots of flavor, which means you get more flavor in every bite.
Crockpot Sweet Things
If you stay busy, your crockpot can be your best friend. Even for dessert. These recipes take 2-3 hours to cook in your crockpot, so they can be cooking away while you are enjoying little league games or t-ball.
Wonderful Fruit Smoothies
I love fruit smoothies. I don't know why I don't have them more often. When I do, I totally love them. They taste as good as any dessert and if made correctly, are very good for you. Find your favorite and give it a try. If you have good one, send it my way either by email or Facebook. If you have a ninja (like a mini food processor except 10 times better!) you can make a smoothie in no time at all.
Sweet Potato Time
It's time for us to dig up our sweet potatoes. I will can some of them. I will make sweet potato butter from some of them. That still leaves a lot of sweet potatoes to use up. So, each year I look for new recipes for the sweet potatoes. I hope that you enjoy these.
Cooking with Rum
A few weeks ago, a colleague went to Jamaica. He came back with bottles of Rum for our team. A very nice gesture and of course that made me start looking for rum recipes! There are a lot of them out there. Here are a few that I really liked and that I think you will enjoy too.
Use Your Fresh Summer Vegetables
Most everyone has access to fresh vegetables during the summer months. It seems a shame not to take advantage of having fresh fruit, herbs and veggies.
Bounty of the Sear
I'm currently working in Charleston. Probably until about the end of November. Of course that means great seafood. I can go down and buy it within a few hours of it coming off the boats. I love it! There is absolutely nothing that I love more than good seafood. Besides, I need the Omega 3's that come from eating seafood. So do you!
