I do my best during the holidays to let my mind rest on the things that really matter, but, let’s face it, mostly I’m looking forward to plenty of good eats. No holds barred, these are the treats that I would like to be whipping up in the kitchen this week:
This cake would be the perfect addition to an evening around the fireplace with friends and a serious cup of coffee. A fabulous winter-time cake that looks beautiful on the plate.
Pie isn’t just for the summer time. If you can get your hands on some fresh berries or apples, a pie hot from the oven won’t be turned down after any meal this week. I’ve been known to eat pie for breakfast and I wouldn’t say no to a piece on Christmas morning I don’t mind telling you.
My grammy’s cheese spread is a Christmas-time must in my family. It’s my favorite savory way to break up all the sweets.
I made this mint cake last year around Easter, but I think it might make another appearance at our family Christmas gathering with icing in a slightly darker shade. It was a huge hit, super moist, and just minty enough. Maybe I’ll call it a Frozen Grasshopper Cake instead…
