Winter Comfort Food

Winter Comfort Food

What is your winter comfort food? A batch of chili or a pot of soup on the stove top is usually my go-to. I also tend to drink more coffee or tea in winter. What do food trucks do during the winter months? Do they brave the cold and hope others will too? I would stop if I saw this truck of goodies!

I hope you all have completed your Christmas shopping. I have done most of mine, but plan to be out ALL day tomorrow getting the rest of the gifts on my list. And it is a long list to complete.

DIY Christmas Cookie Mix in a Jar

Jar of Love//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Yesterday we spent all day baking and decorating Christmas cookies. Sometimes we just do not have the time to make and bake. Another great way to gift cookies to your loved ones is putting all of the ingredients in a jar. It looks great layered.

Pour your ingredients one by one into a Mason jar. Wrap some ribbon or string around the lid and attach a homemade gift tag. You can write the directions on a recipe card and slip it in to their Christmas card. I found several different recipes on The Domestic Geek blog.

How-to Christmas Ornament Cookies

How-to Baking Christmas Cookies

We have been baking and decorating Christmas cookies today. I have two recipes to share with you to make your own at home. The first batch are easy sugar cookies. Just add some icing, m&m’s, and a ROLO candy and you have a Christmas Ornament cookie. Use any assortment of colors for your ornament decoration.

Christmas Ornament Cookies Recipe

To keep things easy, I’m going to show you a recipe from the same blog for the next cookie. It is so easy to make! 4 ingredient Christmas cookies cannot be more simple. Prepare the cake mix, scoop small dough balls on to cookie sheet, bake, cool, and place your Hershey’s Kiss candy on top.

Trimming the Tree with My Deer

Trimming the Tree with My Deer

I have been to The Arcade and loaded up on Christmas decor! The Trompe Loeil advent calendar and the moss&mink collection are a couple of my favorites this year. Now I need to get back to decorating the house. Tomorrow is a big baking day!

I am still loving my CATWA Lilly bento mesh head. It looks great with Glam Affair makeup. Which you may realize is my favorite. I’ve also been digging the Veechi eyeshadows lately.

Under the Christmas Tree – Catwa Lilly

Under the Tree

Catwa recently released the new bento head Lilly.  I think it is adorable, and with bento you can pretty much make it to be your own look. Even if many people buy it you will not all look identical. I am wearing it with a Glam Affair applier and Veechi eyeshadow.

Baking Pumpkin Pie

Baking Pumpkin Pie

Pie is one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner. There is usually a pecan, sweet potato, apple, chocolate, and pumpkin pie. That is a lot of pie. Dust Bunny has a complete Harvest Feast at Collabor88. You can buy the whole thing or individual pieces.

I found a recipe for you, so that you can make your very own Dust Bunny Pumpkin Pie. Check out the Great Pumpkin Pie Recipe by Sally. Complete with leaf decor how-to!
