I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one. I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that, because they’re small, the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so I can and will worry about those pesky additional pounds then. Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!!
I adapted this recipe from one I shared back in 2010 called pecan snowball cookies. I was going to do a recipe re-do where I updated the photos in the original post. However, before I knew it, my brain was adding the festive red and green elements of pistachios and dried cranberries, and omitting the pecans altogether. The result is utterly delicious. I do hope you’ll make these Buttery Sweet Pistachio Cranberry Snowball Cookies. I know you’ll love them just as much as we do!
In the open, I called this a dessert. But if truth be told I came up with this recipe idea for Eggnog Pastry Cream Filled Croissants last Christmas and served them for our annual Christmas brunch, not a dessert. However, this year when I made them again, I served them for dessert. Whichever way you decide to serve them is up to you. The important thing is that you do!

The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.
I happen to love the flavor of peppermint during the holidays. However, neither of my sons are in favor of the flavor of peppermint. But, since I do all of the cooking and baking in the family, I get to choose what ingredients I add to my recipes. LOL Sorry, boys!

I’m sharing this recipe for Christmas Pasta with Red & Green Bell Peppers as a recipe re-do. The original post was one I’d published in December of 2012, but it’s now time for some updated pictures. Below is the original photo from the post back in 2012. As you can see, it was in dire need of an update! The recipe stayed the same, but the photos (thankfully), haven’t.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. This recipe for Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits is one I came up with a few years ago in the hopes it would gain me entry in the iconic Pillsbury Bake-Off. Sadly, I never heard anything back regarding my submission, but I never forgot about this recipe and promised myself that one day I’d add it to the blog. Today is that day!
