Oh – you know that I am a fan of truffles! We make my Oreo Truffles year-round and love making my Peppermint Oreo Truffles at Christmastime and Pumpkin Truffles for Thanksgiving and Halloween, but these gingerbread truffles are just out of this world!
Benefit's Rockateur Box o Powder will help you "pick up the beat with a rush of heat! This rockin' rose gold cheek powder gives famously provocative flush that turns heads on stage and off. The crowd will go wild for it's sexy, faceted design, accented in luxe gold!." Rockateur is the newest addition to Benefit's Box o Powder range.
Cuban Slider Sandwiches are the perfect little sandwiches to serve for get-togethers and parties or even game night and they are super easy to make! These delicious little sandwiches are loaded with ham, roast pork and swiss cheese, then topped with mustard and relish! You better make an extra batch because they are sure to be a crowd pleaser! Want a yummy dip recipe to go with them?
A Southern staple, you'll see Pimento Cheese prepared in almost every variation possible. It goes with ease from the simplest lunch table to the most elegant party.
I made this smoky version for a recent family get-together, and it was a big hit. Those people know pimento cheese, y'all, so I know it was good.
I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart
I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!
Oreo cookie balls have become a classic dessert that looks super impressive but are the perfect go-to dessert or snack! Also great for parties, they are super cute! I love this version I made because it looks like a classic chocolate covered cherry but when you bite into it you get a yummy Oreo surprise!
Breakfast foods are my favorite foods! I may not always eat them at normal breakfast time, actually I prefer them for supper. Is anyone with me on this? Normally, when you think of a breakfast sandwich, ideas of biscuits, eggs and bacon may come to mind. But, have you ever thought about using waffles instead of biscuits? Check out this easy recipe for a Waffle Breakfast Sandwich! Same egg and bacon, but with a twist of a waffle. And, you can even add the sweet taste of some syrup if you want!
The first day of winter is officially upon us and that means soup in this house! soup is a staple in my home now, but growing up that wasn’t really the case. currently i am a huge fan of saving money [who isn’t??], easy and cost effective is best for me! snuggling up to a fire with a warm, delicious bowl of soup is definitely my favorite thing to do on a cold winter night. there is just something so comforting about a big pot of soup, wouldn't you agree??
I feel like my blog has been a little bah-humbug, Christmas is just 1 short week away and I haven't had a chance to do much!
It makes my heart happy to finally get my butt in gear and bring you a cratfy Christmas related post!
I was contacted a few weeks ago by a representative of a company called Burlapfabric.com to see if I would like to receive some of their products to review.
(Ok, you HAVE to go check out their website, they have so many types of burlap to choose from!

Are you feeling the Christmas crunch yet? Well, to take your mind off of all you still need to accomplish, I have a quick little craft for you today. I had several readers ask about these Cozy Felt Pine Cones when I posted my Holiday Home Tour and it just didn't seem right to wait until after Christmas to share how to make them.
I’ve seen some people make fudge in the slow cooker, but honestly, who has time for that! This recipe takes only 5 minutes to make and requires NO preparation and the great thing about it is you can make any variations you like to the standard recipe. I made classic chocolate topped with Jaffas and double layer white chocolate with sprinkles.
