Happy Friday, folks!
First things first: Happy 2nd birthday to my little girl, Jules. We’ve had our ups and downs, but I can always count on you to snuggle with me.
Sorry for the late post- it was late evening and early morning. I am actually still trying to get over the sadness I have after watching “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith”. I didn’t think that I would get so into the movies, but they have such a good story line, strong character development, and a ton of spiritual references/symbolisms. It is things like that that made me OBSESSED with Harry Potter. I’m excited to see 4-6 now! But still very sad at the same time… I will just leave with this image. 😦
ANYWAYS, Star Wars is not what I wanted to discuss today. I have the holidays on my mind and for the past month+ I have been thinking about all the things I want to bake/make over break. Most of them are sweets… but that’s because sweets tend to be the most time consuming and school/work life don’t like to leave me with time.
Here are a few on the top of my list:
Pumpkin Pecan Chunky Granola by Stephanie
I haven’t made granola since LAST Christmas, but I do say it is time! I love it as a snack, plain or over cottage cheese. The “pumpkin” is what sold me on this one.
The Best Chocolate Cake Ever by Robyn
Can we just take a minute to appreciate that beautiful work of art? Double chocolate cake is one my all time favorites, but I’ve never actually made it before. I am going to make it for a Christmas party this weekend and I am SO excited to see how it turns out!
Peppermint Chocolate No-bake Bites by Alexis
I can always use more on-the-go healthy snacks and this peppermint + cocoa combination is one of my favorites!
No- bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie by Kylie
This one is especially for Terry, the biggest PB cup lover I know. When I saw it, I knew it had to be done. I love Kylie’s blog- all her recipes are so fun and unique. She’s got a great food philosophy, too.
Baked Homemade Pizza Rolls by Cassie
Would you look at that childhood favorite all re-done and sophisticated? I don’t know if I could enjoy the original pizza rolls like I used to as a kiddo, but these look fantastic. What a cool idea to use wonton strips??
Easy Cinnamon Rolls by Sally
Cinnamon rolls are another thing I’ve never made from scratch. These babies have Christmas morning written all over them. I love that these are a little easier than most recipes too- yeast is no cake walk to work with.
One Pan Enchilada Pasta by Melissa
Yum! Mexican food in pasta form. The love for one-pan meals is real. I think this will serve as an excellent meal to switch up from all the holiday food. Terry loves these kind of meals too- meaty, cheesy, and saucy (but not too spicy for him).
So while that is definitely not the end of my must make list, these are certainly on the top!
Do you have a recipe on the top of your list for holiday baking/making? I can always add to mine!
