I am so totally excited about the holidays this year. I love breaking out the boots and sweaters, Christmas carols and holiday movies, hauling firewood inside before the rain starts, stoking the fireplace and heading out for an afternoon of Christmas shopping. But what I really love is organizing all my cooking and baking plans.
I've been sharing a few of my latest endeavors over at my new food blog. It still needs a bit of work on the site, but it's a fun little place to share some of the dishes that actually come together well (the others get tossed out in the chicken coop, LOL). I love coming up with my own creations, my own spin on some basic recipes, but I also look forward to pulling out my tried and true favorites...and I have many.
I love challenging myself by using only ingredients I have on hand. For example, these little apple caramel cakes to the left are my own concoction using 3 Granny Smith apples and 1/2 bag of Caramel Bits along with all the flavors of the season; cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
I'm also SUPER excited to share the latest issue of CW Voice! Our November/December issue celebrates 4 years of encouraging women for Christ! I am so blessed to be a part of this little magazine. There's something in every issue that connects and resonates as our amazing contributors share their hearts and love for Jesus. I do hope you'll check it out here. Sitting down with a copy of CW Voice and a cup of coffee or tea is the perfect respite from any busy day.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with me here. I do pray you'll have a wonderful, blessed, healthy and safe holiday season.
Peace upon you,
