No More Bah Humbug!



Okay, so I admit I've been a bit of a downer here the last few posts. So now it's time to think some positive festive thoughts. How about sharing your all-time favorite holiday cookie/dessert/hor'doeuvres recipe? Drop me a comment by Sunday if you would like to participate, and I will post it on my blog on Monday. Please include the name of the item so I can link your blog and your recipe title. That's Monday, December 7th!

I know just the recipe I want to share...

oh, girl! holiday recipes! yummmm...

sorry to change the subject from happy fun holiday times, but, lest i forget, did you happen to catch the new conspiracy theories show on trutv the other night - it's being hosted by jesse ventura [of all people] but i must say that it was rivetingly interesting - this one on the HAARP PROJECT in alaska - are you familiar with this deal? i had only vaguely remembered having heard of it several years ago - but the show really exposed it - you might wanna check out the show on tuesday or wednesday nights [gee, can't remember which now] - airs 10:00 pm EST on TRUTV!

have a beautiful day!

I have a fantastic one! Take a package of cream cheese and put half a jar of pepper jelly over it. Serve with crackers and watch it disappear! A good old southern staple;)

Laura said...

I am so glad to have found your blog.

I don't think it's bah humbug to cause us to all think about how things have changed.

I know I, in the past, bought too much for my girls at Christmas time.

I look forward to December 7th.

I have written myself a note!

I actually like baking! If I can think of a good recipe, I will let you know.

Boomka said...

My favorite holiday recipe is to take all of the cookies in front of me and eat them. Wait never mind, that's not a recipe. Nevermind.

Reya Mellicker said...

I'm so sorry to read the sad news about Roxy. Those naughty dogs are so dear to us, aren't they?

Sorry too to learn that you've had "it" - the flu virus that can not be named.

God Almighty 2009 has been one hell of a year. I can't wait for it to end, really I can't.

Sending love and healing energy to you!

Oh ... my fav X-mas treat by far is rum balls. I can eat them until my stomach hurts.

Mental P Mama deserves this one! If you have not tried this...really, she is right...people eat this up...yum...got to go get me some...smiles.

susan said...

That's a very pretty Christmas cookie.

Joanne said...

These should make for some appetizing linksw. I'm not much of a baker so can't provide a recipe; one of my favorite cookies comes from an old-world bakery in the South End of Hartford, as good as home made, I can assure you. We make a stop there for goodies every Christmastime :)

Rain said...

Great idea Nancy! I don't have much to share except for this little comfort drink!

Peppermint Hot Cocoa

Ingredients:
Hot cocoa
Either peppermint extract or peppermint liqueur
Whipped cream
Candy cane

Directions:
Mix to taste, top with whipped cream; and add a candy cane as a stir stick.

Simple but effective!!! :)

Jo said...

Nancy, I didn't think your last posts were "Bah Humbug" at all. You're very intelligent, and I love your posts that have substance.

The whole internet is turning into the "women's afternoon tea party". Your blog is always one of the more interesting ones.

Cheers!
Jo

Hi Nancy, I'm just getting caught up on all my blog reading. I haven't read your previous posts yet, but I will.

I love Christmas and I love to bake and make desserts. I will post a recipe tomorrow for you to look at. Can't wait to see what everyone's favorite is.

lakeviewer said...

Count me in. I'll post my favorite on Monday too.
I'll indulge with a recipe for Panettone both on my main blog, and on the secondary blog.
