It’s Christmas and I hope you’re spending time with loved ones.
Even though I’ve only been blogging a few months, I’ve enjoyed sharing recipes sprinkled with a few adventures with my family and new friends.
I am very grateful you’ve taken the time to stop by and see what’s cooking at my house. I enjoyed a very nice Christmas Eve dinner with my husband, son, daughter and my son’s girlfriend. I will post a couple of recipes soon. The biggest hit at dinner was the Corn Pudding recipe I found on Tasty Kitchen. They were fighting over the last spoonfuls. Very nice, easy recipe and oh so delicious.
We were hoping for a white Christmas, but the nor’easter stayed off the coast and missed us completely. But I was still in the mood for homemade hot chocolate even without the snow.
