Brandy Ice - Project 52: Week 52

One more for the end of the year! I had a Brandy Ice at a local restaurant and thought that sounded fun for New Year's Eve.

Penguins - Project 52: Week 52

I see these cute olive and cream cheese penguins on Tasty Kitchen and new I had to make them. We enjoyed them as a non-sugary snack on Christmas Eve. (Sorry I can't find the instructions for the life of me!).

Christmas Cookies - Project 52: Week 51

I'm trying to get all my food pictures up before the end of year, so I don't have any recipes yet to go with these, but the marshmallow cookie is a stained-glass window. Then I made a chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips (have to have peanut butter in there somewhere!). And in the background is extra I had from Emeril's Key Lime Pie, which we had for Christmas Eve.

Polka Dot Cookies~Project 52: Week 49

These mint chips come out at Christmas time only (at least in my regular grocery store), so I buy them just to buy them. I decided to try the recipe on the back of the bag and it is DELICIOUS! The cookie it fudgy and the coolness of the mint chips feels so good in the mouth.

Fish Fry - Project 52: Week 50

I recently received a Dutch Oven (thanks Mommy!) so I could make Pioneer Woman's Roast (which was delicious), but my hubby also saw other uses for the dutch oven. Such as frying fish.

And French Fries. This picture bothers me, but I took it after we ate, and that's all that was left, it was dark out (no natural lighting), so I did the best I could under the circumstances.

Keepsake Cookies - Project 52: Week 48

I found a recipe for Keepsake Cookies in an old recipe book (with no pictures). With a cookie-like bottom, a sugary/peanut buttery topping, plus a chocolate topping: I had to make these. But the crumbly crust was nearly impossible to make into cookies, so I pushed the crust into the bottom of my spring form cheese cake pan and cut pieces as I needed them. (Yes, I needed pieces of this!).
