Pecan Pretzel Bark

Since returning home from the holiday where I ate every type of food imaginable, I’m now in an apartment where I have a few condiments and snacks.  Since Miles won’t be back until the weekend, I’ve avoided going to the store and have enjoyed pigging out on whatever I can get my hands on.  Yesterday…

Cinnamon Chop Bread with Irish Cream Glaze

Every Christmas for breakfast I make cinnamon rolls.  This year I’ve been going through a mini eggnog obsession and wanted to make eggnog cinnamon rolls.  Since it was Christmas Eve, the kitchen was bustling, so time and space in the kitchen were limited. Instead of making homemade dough, I used frozen bread dough and made…

Decorated Sugar Cookies

For the first time ever, my son decided that he wanted to make and decorated sugar cookies this year.  I was ecstatic!  Although I can get him to help me out in the kitchen occasionally and make a few dishes on his own, he definitely likes to eat rather than “create”. We went to the…

Eggnog Cake with Rum Frosting

One of the things I love most about coming home for the holidays (besides seeing my family), is hanging out with my foodie friends.  Side note:  I really hate the term foodie, and cringe a little inside every time I say or type it, but over time I’ve come to accept it as I haven’t…

Bermuda Rum Candied Pecans

It’s my last week in the office before the holiday (we’ll for most folks in the office), and little bags of treats have been appearing on my desk daily.  I suddenly felt behind on my office gift giving and began to search my cupboard for options.  Pecans!  I have lots and lots of pecans and…

Caramel Brownies with Pretzel Crust

I feel like I need to have a t-shirt made saying “I survived the move!”  All 1,400 employees moved into our new building today.  It’s been very exciting and very busy.  I actually worked all weekend troubleshooting building issues with our core team to make sure everything would be as perfect as possible when everyone…

Star Wars Marshmallow Treats

I few weeks ago I made a Star Wars Cake and decorated the outside with Star Wars shaped marshmallows from the cereal.  I saved the cereal for another use, mainly for snacking, but also keeping it for another purpose.  I thought I’d make marshmallow treats with them. This time around I thought I’d brown the…

Salmon and Corn Chowder

So I mentioned a few weeks ago that I bought a months’ worth of salmon while shopping at Costco for paper towel and toilet paper.  I also created a post dedicated to salmon recipes that I would like to try and I finally got around to trying one.  The salmon and corn chowder.  After buying…
