Sometimes Christmas Wishes are very important, they could mean reaching a goal that stretches out a lifetime. Pretty, pretty please listen to Kayleigh's beautiful entry in First Night Springfield's song contest and take the time to vote...
Have you sent out your Christmas cards already? It takes me several shopping trips to find the perfect cards to send, then I do a Christmas Letter to include in the card. I know what you are thinking...."I HATE those!" But there are different kinds of Christmas letters.
Don't like fruitcake... then you haven't tried this one! David Lebovitz's recipe will turn your world upside down, one bite and you'll un-do years of prejudiced ideas about the citron laden loaf that no one likes! You can omit the liquor and just soak the cherries in juice, the whole idea is to plump them up!
It's Election Day, for many of us we are glad it's here and anxious for it to be over! I'm ready to cut back spending, starting today and to celebrate no more phone polls--- we're having Eisenhower Vegetable Soup for dinner! I found an interesting site while surfing the other day, The National Archives Presidential Libraries. From there I began reading and came across some great recipes and history associated with each President.
I'm feeling a little "fluffy" after making (and sampling) the pumpkin donut holes 3 times in less than 2 weeks! I do that, wear out a good recipe and then I move onto the next one, and the next one and the next one. Dr. Oz actually addressed this syndrome recently, Pinterest Addiciton. Pinning something to excess. Guilty as charged, I do love the ability to have recipes in the wings waiting for an occasion for me to make them. I traded my cookbook addiction for Pinterest and I've not looked back, that's a good thing! Think how much money I'm going to save on cookbooks ; )
I have a case of the cozies here on Granny Mountain since the weather has turned off chilly, all I want to do is huddle by the fire and bake. Sunday was one of those days. We watched an old movie in the afternoon and then a few episodes of American Pickers. It didn't matter that we'd seen them before, we like that show. I resisted the urge to make anything sweet until sometime after supper... that's when I remembered a recipe that I'd posted on Pinterest for Pumpkin Spice Donuts.
Pumpkin. Spice. Donuts.
Catch your eye, me too! Saveur Magazine is celebrating their 150th issue with 150 hard to find recipes from around the world. As I scrolled down the ingredient list, I just knew I'd like this recipe from Jane and Michael Stern's 1987 cookbook Elvis World! We've never lost that attraction to the King, we loved his voice and his movies, we loved that he loved his Mama and we really loved the fact that this poor Mississippi boy could afford anything he wanted to eat...
Bikes, Blues and BBQ will be rolling into NWA this week, the largest charitable motorcycle rally in the U.S., Fayetteville has become a choice destination for the thousands of bikers that make the trek each year to these Ozark Mountains. Riding the winding roads with picture perfect fall scenery, a big part of why this has become a favorite rally! That rumble is unmistakable, it starts low and then you FEEL IT as they pass by!
