Merry Merry Christmas

I don’t know about you but life has been crazy around here. Between last minute Christmas shopping, birthday celebrations, trips back and forth to the new house and unpacking there hasn’t been much time to breathe.

Gingerbread Granola {Christmas Tray 2012}

As you can tell, I kind of have a thing for granola (and I have passed it on to Noah). We got addicted to all of Trader Joe’s granola but since we had never had a TJ’s in town (until now, mwhahaha) I always liked to make it homemade to snack on. We like it plain, vanilla flavored

If you are having a small holiday celebration, this is a perfect option over the big traditional ham. I actually made these quite awhile ago for our anniversary and they were a huge hit. The combination of the tenderness of the steak with the crunchy, cheesy texture of the crust was incredible and over the top. I went

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Let me begin by telling you I am not a big fan of tomato soup. But Joel on the other hand is and has been begging for grilled cheese and tomato soup since the cold weather hit. I finally gave in but just couldn’t go the traditional route….it grosses me out. So I went on

Cake Batter Sugar Cookies {Christmas Tray 2012}

I love me some sugar cookies. Whether they are rolled, cut and frosted or simple dropped on a sheet and baked they are my absolute favorite type of cookie. So sugar cookies combined with a cake batter flavor are right up my alley of course. I also love sprinkles…they make everything happy and much cuter. Am I
