Put the Holidays in Your Face


There is one reason why I have continued to feed myself, bathe, and otherwise keep myself alive these past few days: enchiladas. My Dad is making enchiladas for tomorrow’s Christmas lunch. I’m in. I’m so alive and I’m so in.

I’m going to come out of the next few family laden days with a camera full of pictures of my little sister doing various silly things, my uncle tormenting unsuspecting family members with a can of Redi-Whip Cream, and my Dad in several Christmas inspired aprons.

Mostly I just wanted to stop and say Hey! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Cheers to celebration, family, friends and food! It’s important. You’re important…. and I mean that. Have a great, belly filling holiday, and thanks for coming by and saying nice things like you always do. It means a lot to me.

Still looking for those last minute recipe? Here’s a few goodies you might be able to whip up without heading out to the store.

Peppermint Meringues

Just the Best Chocolate Brownie Cookies um… ever.

Make ’em love you Apple Crisp.

Mocha Rum Cake… for serious.

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

    I made your peppermint meringues for Christmas (sans the red food coloring gel) – they were a hit.

    Keep up the great work on your blog!
