It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 12–The Big Meal

The 12th post in our It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series is all about the food!  If you’ve missed any of our other Christmas themed posts, I hope you’ll check them out!
My contribution to Christmas dinner this year is cooking the turkey, stuffing and potatoes.  I cooked a turkey at Thanksgiving and was really happy with how it turned out so I will be following the same recipe.  Same with the potatoes.  The stuffing however will be a first time recipe.  It’s a Betty Crocker recipe, so …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No.11–Eggnog Cookies

I’m so glad you could join me for my 11th, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas post.  I have lots of work to do if I’m going to post another 14 times between now and Christmas.  Maybe these cookies will give me the energy I need!
Eggnog.  It’s one of those seasonal treats you either love or hate.  Personally, I love it.  I’m pretty sure I could drink it year round and never get sick of it.  So when I stumbled upon a recipe (over on the recipe critic)  …

I’m so glad you’ve joined me for my second It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas post!
When I think of traditional Christmas cookies, I think of shortbread.  And when I do my holiday baking, I ‘m really only interested in easy recipes.  The holidays are a busy enough time without making things harder on ourselves. Right?  So when I stumbled upon this shortbread recipe, I couldn’t wait to try it.  It only requires four ingredients – and I already had them all!  Let me tell you, this recipe was …

Maple Toffee

With Thanksgiving less than a week away (for us Canadian folks) I thought I would whip up a batch of Maple Toffee to take with me to the two Thanksgiving dinners I will be a guest at.  Well, truth be told, one the dinners will be held at my sister’s house, but I’ll be doing most of the cooking so I guess I’m not really a guest.  Either way, it’s nice to show up with a sweet treat.  People like candy.  This is a really easy recipe.   And if you …

Healthy, Homemade Fro Yo!

Creating in the kitchen fulfills me the same way creating a craft, painting a room, or refinishing a piece of furniture does.  You start with nothing and end with something!  Something made entirely by you!  Something that taste good (hopefully), photographs nicely (with any luck at all) and in this case, is good for you!  This blog focuses on making our home beautiful but I’m also passionate about health and fitness.  And I’m always looking for creative ways to satisfy my sweet tooth without sacrificing my health.  Don’t get me …

Easy Banana Bread

Bananas usually don’t have a chance to get really ripe around here because I eat them well before that happens.  But for some reason we’ve had an abundance of bananas in our house lately and a few were on the brown and soft side.  So instead of throwing them away, I whipped up some banana bread yesterday.  I adapted a recipe I found on Cooking On Clover Lane.
Easy Banana Bread Recipe
2 large bananas (The recipe called for three bananas.  Mine were very large so I used two.)
1 cup butter

Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

This is one of the easiest cheesecake recipes I’ve ever made.  And the most delicious if you ask me.  Of course, I grew up with this recipe so I’m bias.  Whenever we visited my Grandma as kids she would have a batch of this whipped up and waiting for us.  She always topped hers with cherry pie filling, but it is easily altered to suit the tastes of your guests.  I had a house full of blueberry lovers last night so blueberries it was!  Blueberries, cherries, it doesn’t matter.  It …
