Our Christmas tradition has been cookies. We make sugar and gingerbread cookies every year to set out for Santa. This was our first year using some non-traditional colors (primarily because I found some Easter sprinkles in the pantry!) I also was inspired by Aunt GA to try royal icing! So much fun! Enjoy the pics!
Confession time.. I knew we were going to my sister in laws for Christmas so I really didn't have any real plans for Christmas or even Christmas Eve. It wasn't until the Thursday before Christmas did it dawn on me that maybe I should come up with something.
Decided to make a stuffed pork loin.. And of course it's enough to feed a small army.. So I invited the army over to partake with us.. By army I mean the Minghelli fam.
Oh.. FYI.. Anything wrapped in bacon is the closest to heaven you'll get here on earth
Stuffed Pork Loin
John Lennon once sang life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. And that's precisely the case with my Christmas dinner. It wasn't to be. However, I had a Plan B. It worked! Last week I had debated between two bread recipes. The spice bread won out. Since I was unable to make my original Christmas dinner I simply made my other bread recipe for Christmas brunch. I found this French Toast recipe in Good Housekeeping but changed it slightly to cater to my personal taste. Today I will share the French Toast recipe and save the bread recipe for tomorrow's bake.
I hope that everyone had a happy Christmas!
Happy New Year!
Cheers to 2017!!
Here's to 2018!!
