I’m not a fan of the snow! I’ve blamed my last few years in NYC on this hatred. I mean snow there becomes dark and dirty in just moments and makes walking around just near impossible.
Merry Christmas to all!!
Hey everyone! I’m taking a few minutes to relax from making all kinds of tasty things and cleaning to prepare for Christmas! I’ve been busy and working since 9 this morning.
Since everyone has been home, I decided to make a family recipe for dinner the other night. We have some Polish heritage, so I made stuffed cabbage rolls. They are very tasty!
Today, I’ve made so many things. Our Christmas Eve tradition is to make all of our favorite foods. This year, I chose deviled eggs, which I made this morning. I used a Rachael Ray recipe, which is close to traditional, but adds bacon into the mix. Bacon makes everything taste better!
I also made a cheese ball and a ham dip, not pictured because my camera died before I made them. We are also making a spicy sausage dip, buying buffalo wings (extra hot!) and making mac and cheese. I might also make mini crescent dogs.
And now onto dessert goodies I made today. I used a cookie press to make these:
After looking in 5 different stores, I finally found mini candy canes. I saw an idea for heart-shaped peppermint bark I wanted to try. They turned out great!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
“Pretty Girl Rock”-Keri Hilson; Ok, maybe not one of the best from the year, but it’s in my head!
Last night I joined my friend Ryan for dinner at his new apartment. My job was rather simple, I cleaned the vegetables:
And tea ceremonies! Saturday night I met up with a friend and attended a traditional tea ceremony at Radiance Tea House. It was both fun and education and I highly recommend for anyone looking for something different to do in the city.
This week I’ve been experimenting with oatmeal pancakes, thanks in part to an impulse buy of egg whites from Trader Joes and inspiration from the blogging world.
The end product, amazingness!
Experiment 2-Berry apple pancake. This was a bit of a disaster, but still tasty. I followed the above but used applesauce instead of banana. That was mistake number 1, the applesauce made the consistency too runny. Mistake #2, I tried to make one large pancake instead of several small.
