Christmas Baking Plans


I have high hopes for whipping some holiday treats up...We shall see how things develop this week.

My criteria was quick and easy...On my list are the following:

Chocolate Cinnamon Fudge
Cinnamon Pretzels
Cake Batter Chocolate Bark
Poor Man's Toffee - with saltines (I have made it with Cheez-its and it is delicious)
Peanut Butter Blossoms

And We're Back!

Hello!  We have been dealing with some major sicknesses with little Nathan that has kept me from doing any actual posts.  So, to pick up where I left off...Party food!!

I did mostly snack and finger foods.  Several kinds of chips, veggie tray, grapes, a BBQ slider sandwich, and, by far the crowd favorites - bacon wrapped pineapple and the little ham sandwich sliders.

If you need to make any appetizer-type treats for holiday parties, I must recommend the following recipes found on Tasty Kitchen:

Bacon-wrapped pineapple - even better with fresh pineapple!  These got rave reviews.

Ham  and Swiss rolls - this isn't the one I used, but it is pretty close.  SO GOOD!

I did cupcakes instead of cake.  It was my first attempt to pipe icing and they were super-tasty despite the fact that I should have used a different tip- it looked like dog poop.
