November has set in, and all there is to do is wait until winter comes. Okay, screw that! This time of year is when we all settle into the holiday schedule of baking, partying, and forgetting a bit about active summer days. Now we can spend more time with the family, and of course, tasting more good items. Grab your cider, and let’s go taste!
Chestnut Ravioli by Macheesmo – Nick, you nailed it! The dish here is not only money, he was hardcore by doing it without a pasta roller! The ravioli is sweet, with the crunchiness of the chestnuts, rounded out by the Macarpone. Is there anything Nick won’t do?
Vidalia’s Macaroni and Cheese by Best Bites – Oh, Mac and Cheese the way it was meant to be. I am so hungry right now. I think I know what to make.
Biscochitos by Gabriela’s Kitchen – Any cookie that begins with Lard is money in my books. There is another dimension on white wine and cinnamon going here. All in all, it reminds me of when my Grandmother used to do all the baking around the holidays.
Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Crisp Squares by Brown Eyed Baker – If she was to make these, and I was around, she would have a problem. There would be no more. She would have to keep making them. They are delicious, and I plan to make some tonight.
Cranberry Crumb Bars by My Baking Addition – Anything to do with cranberries this time of year gets my vote. I love these, and they will be featured on my Christmas table.
Crumb-Topped Apple Pie by Our Best Bites – Okay, how can this be fair? You are combining my two favorite desserts with apples into one item? How will your pie ever survive in my house? More like in my belly!
Salted Cocoa Roasted Hazelnuts by Joy the Baker – Hazelnuts are coming in. I love them to death, and I cannot wait to see this item go out for our VIP amenities. I thank Joy for the inspiration!
Duck Fat Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Almonds and Cranberries by Local Lemons – I don’t really have to tell you why this recipe is listed, do I?
