Holiday Tablescape

Are you entertaining this holiday season?  Do you like to set a nice table?  I do and this year I found some plate from Home and Garden at Walmart that I will be using to do my Holiday Tablescape.

Chocolate Cranberry Meringue Dessert - #CIC

December 20th already... Are you ready for Christmas?  Have you thought what you will be serving for  dessert or maybe a Christmas coffee?  This recipe would work perfect for either.  It is light and just the perfect amount of sweetness to work after a big dinner or have with your coffee or tea.

This month we picked Cranberries and Cocoa for our Crazy Ingredient Challenge and I thought a dessert would be perfect to make for this month's challenge.

Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party #178

We are finally getting winter here in the UP... although I shouldn't complain as last year by this time we had 100 inches of snow and we have had only a few inches this year... but I am going to complain.. bitterly.  But one good thing is that with the storm coming it will be a good time to crawl under a blanket with a good cup of tea and check out the party... What party you ask....

Homemade Coffee Creamers

I love my coffee, and creamers make them even better.  Did you know that you can make your own creamers at home?  You can for half the costs and the ingredients are something that you can pronounce.

Homemade Coffee Creamers- perfect with to sweetened your coffee or give as a gift.

Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party #177

Thursday again, I think these weeks are going by faster and faster.  This week has been a busy week for me.  I helped host our Staff Christmas Party...  a great party with good food and I had fun decorating for this party.  We also had a Mitten Tree where everyone could donate mitts, scarves and hats to the children in need in our community.  How has your week been and if you are looking for more ideas for your holiday planning, you have come to the right place..

Decorate with Crochet Thread Trees

I came across a video to make these trees on Facebook and thought that they would be awesome to make for our Staff Christmas Party and also use in my own decorating.  They looked easy to do, which they were but not so easy to get off the cone forms.

Decorate your mantle of table with trees made from crochet thread.  Add battery lights from the Dollar tree to make more festive.

Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party #176

I can't believe that it is December already... and as we don't have very much snow it doesn't seem real.  Where does the time go?  But even thought it is hard to think that it is already December, it is Thursday and that means it is time to party.....

Gingerbread Snowman Cookies #fillthecookiejar

Too cold to go outside to make snowmen, you can still make them in your cozy warm kitchen.  Make them with gingerbread and chocolate... and enjoy as many you want with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate ~ your choice!
