Just in time for holiday gift giving, here’s a candy recipe you need to try— Salted Caramel Nut Brittle. Post sponsored by Diamond Nuts.
Almost more than anything about this time of year, I look forward to the holiday treats. (Is that really any surprise?) But while I love gobbling up the cookies and candy, I enjoy giving it all away to friends and family more. Homemade treats are some of my favorite gifts to give. Everyone is sure to love them, and it’s a great excuse for me to have some fun in the kitchen without feeling guilty about eating it all afterward.
I’ve eaten a whole batch of cookies before, I really have. And it doesn’t feel so good. Sharing them with others feels so much better!
This coffee cake recipe from Red Star Yeast is all dressed up for the holidays with spices, candied fruit, and walnuts.
What do you make for breakfast Christmas morning?
I usually obsess about it for weeks. Should I make something sweet or savory? Do I do something complicated and prep it the night before, or keep it simple to whip it up that morning? Pancakes or french toast? Bacon or sausage?
So many options.
A winter red wine sangria for your holiday merriment— with pomegranates and oranges, as well some cranberries, a cinnamon stick and a heavy splash of brandy.
I am more than a little bit addicted to sangria. Friends coming over? Special occasion? Just a Saturday night in with the hubby? Ooooh, let’s make sangria!
I’ve done a lot of experimenting with different flavors, depending on my mood and time of year. And I’ve never met a sangria I didn’t like, to be honest.
This particular recipe was created last year, on Christmas Day actually. We loved it so much, I had to make another batch for New Year’s Eve. For months now I’ve been looking forward to making a batch again and couldn’t wait any longer.
