I order and eat out a lot. So as a goal this year, I am trying to cook and bake more at home. It is something I am not very good at, but I figure the more I try the better I will get. My friend gave me this recipe for Pumpkin bread and today seemed like the perfect day to make it. The recipe makes two loaves, but right after taking them from the oven, I dropped the other one on the floor, this is why I order out a lot. Anyhow, the surviving loaf was really good for breakfast. Here is the recipe for you, if you would like to try it out. I will try to share some of the recipes I am trying as I go. Wish me luck.
We started off all of the major holiday festivities that will continue this week, last night, with our cookie party. We all got together and made as many cookies as we could until we were so sugar sick we could not take it any more. The picture above is only a tiny portion of our end product. Needless to say I left with about 300 cookies and I am not exaggerating one bit. There were many wonderful recipes, but I will share with you my very favorite. I found it on the food network website and I will be definitely making it again, Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I am trying to eat a bit better, but cannot survive without chocolate. I am sure that many can relate! Rarely does the healthier alternative ever taste anywhere near to even decent. But I found this brownie mixover the weekend and am blown away. So much so, it deserved a mention on the blog and I am running out to buy boxes! I guess if you eat the whole pan it can’t really be called healthy.
