Christmas Party Time!

I had a belated Christmas party the other night. I spent all day cooking and baking the recipes I have been bookmarking for months and my hours spent food blog reading paid off!

Almost all of the recipes I used had sugar in them. I figured this was a rare occasion to bake some fun, sugary recipes and not have to worry about who would eat them. Originally, I wasn't going to eat any of them, making baking so difficult. I had to keep wiping my fingers instead of licking them... Anyways, I made them all without tasting, but ultimately decided I couldn't really post about the recipes if I had no idea what they tasted. I had small bites of each.

Attempts to Feed my Father with Granola Bars

Now that I am home for the holidays, I have made it my mission to get my father to eat breakfast. To avoid the excuse of limited time in the morning, I decided granola bars would be best. I made these last week.

First Post...

This is a sweet potato crisp I made over American Thanksgiving... I got the recipe from this website. It was so good! I used a half cup of walnuts instead of raisins, greek yogurt instead of sour cream and baked it in one large dish. I also think I added some vanilla and a little extra honey to the crisp? I actually thought it tasted better cold--it kind of took on the texture of almost a cheesecake, I guess once the greek yogurt was able to reform.
