These cookies are made with pre-packaged hot chocolate mix and then studded with chocolate chips. The are very rich and decadent.

Cab Franc around the World Invitation Post #WinePW

We will be celebrating #CabFrancDay on December 4th where we feature Cab Franc as a stand alone grape instead of a blending grape.  I thought I would continue the theme throughout the month and  decided to invite the Wine Pairing Weekend Group to join me in sharing the food pairings that we have discovered that pair well with this lovely wine.

I am showcasing a wine from our very own, Lori of Dracaena Wines.  So go out, grab a bottle of Cab Franc and meet up with us on Twitter Chat on December 12th at 11 AM ET following #WinePW.  We love when visitors pop in and tell us all about their experiences with our topic.

If participating with a blog post please stop by the event page and post your information.

Butterscotch Pear and Cranberry Pecan Bread Pudding #FamilyBakingChallenge

Melissa's Produce is hosting a Family Baking Challenge for the next six weeks.  It is an opportunity for families to bake together and be entered into a drawing with a chance of winning some great prize packages. 


Heather of Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks  arranged for 12 of us to receive fresh produce from Melissa's to use in this challenge.  There was also a bag of King Arthur organic flour in the box.  I have worked with products from both of these sponsors in the past and have always been pleased with the results.  I received no monetary compensation for this post and all writings and opinions are strictly my own.

The Weekly Menu including Thanksgiving Dinner

Well....many of us might have to dig deep to find things for which to be grateful for at Thanksgiving in this 2020 world.

It is hard not to get the doldrums and I have been having my fair share of the blues.  So today and each day up to Thanksgiving Day I am going to think of 5 things for which I am grateful this year.

Puree of Celery Root Soup #SoupSaturdaySwappers

This creamy, comforting soup is perfect on those blustery cold days.  It goes together quickly and easily and makes a great lunch or light dinner served with a salad and some crusty bread.


Welcome to Soup Saturday Swappers........

Hot Chocolate and Halva Pudding paired with Lion De Tanesse L'Amour #CakeSliceBakers #Winophiles

This delicious, chocolatey, gooey cake is so amazing.  Paired with a glass of Sweet Bordeaux it was exactly the kind of comfort I needed as the holidays approach during this ongoing pandemic.
