Holiday Recipe Roundup!

I remember when I was a little girl, the holidays seem to take forever to get here. I would wake up each day and it seemed to just drag on. I would watch movies, drink hot chocolate and popcorn, we would do all of the usual holiday festivities. It was a really good time.

Nowadays, I still do most of that but now it seems like the holidays just creep up out of nowhere. Like there’s not much of a break between summer and Christmas. I guess my inner child would be excited.

While I am totally behind on the holiday cooking and baking this year, I thought I would roundup some recipes that are favorites around this time and maybe they’ll give you some inspiration!

Appetizers

Figs with Ricotta and Honey (more…)

Classic Vanilla Birthday Cake

Who doesn’t love a good vanilla cake?

When done right, it’s amazing, and you’d have a hard time finding someone who disagrees. The sad fact is though, not many people have had a good vanilla cake.

Tomatillo Salsa

Oh salsa. What is Texas without salsa? Dry tacos, nothing but cheese to dip your chip in, and nothing to add a little kick to your every meal.

Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate Pairings

Oh chocolate. I’m pretty sure it is safe to say that it is truly one of life’s simple pleasures.

Mushroom and Onion Ricotta Crostini’s

Once again I changed my site layout. I can never make up my mind.
