Cookie Decorating

Photo: Holiday cookie baking. This batch was my white chocolate tangerine tea cakes! Follow me on Instagram for more photos of my daily life. Aka: pictures of food, puppies and board games.

Savvy Eats

I know it is cookie season and all, but I really want to make this ice cream.

For something a little less sweet to snack on: rosemary roasted cashews.

Pumpkin. Naan. Gruyere. All of these things are awesome on their own, and now they are combined into a pizza? Yes, please.

I want some pineapple pork fried rice!

Looking for some healthy vegetarian recipes? Try some freekah bean burgers.

Let’s make eggnog waffles for Christmas morning!

Queso crockpot chicken chili with roasted corn and jalapeño. How soon can I make this?

If your New Year’s resolution is to cook more, don’t forget: learning to cook requires some practice.


Savvy Drinks

I’m putting together my NYE cocktail party menu.  Might need to include these Merry Manhattans.

…or cranberry ginger gin fizzes.

Oh! Or eggnog chai lattes when we all start to get sleepy pre-midnight!


What I’m Watching

(Other than a ton of Christmas movies!)

The Sing Off, of course. Some of my favorite performances so far: Amazed by the AcoUstiKats. Ring of Fire by Home Free. Holding Out for a Hero by Vocal Rush.

Someone put a camera on a toy car and drove it to a pride of lions.  It is fascinating to watch!
