Once upon a time, life got really really ridiculously
good looking busy. Princess Talitha wished life could slow down so she could, you know, eat… and stuff. But, alas, life refused Talitha’s request and forged ahead, twice as fast as before. Queue me entering, stage left, doing 2 room makeovers/facelifts in 4 weeks. PLUS prepping the house for guests. PLUS doing crazy amounts of yard work to keep the snakes at bay.
By the time my mom got here this past Saturday, I was exhausted. She told me about this great recipe for a little pick-me-up that was packed full of great proteins. Twenty minutes later I had these delicious no bake energy bites!
Holy moly, batman. Christmas is in 2 days. Can you even stand it!? Are you ready? The hubs and I are currently in Chicago visiting with family (and snuggling my newborn nephew!) and enjoying all the festivities. And what are Christmas festivities without some delicious treats? I’m rounding up some of my favorite holiday treats just in time for you to whip up for your family’s celebrations! Be warned… you may start drooling!
Just popping in real quick to let you all know that I’m sharing my last creative team post over on I Heart Naptime! Go check out my fantastic recipe for homemade Eggnog Marshmallows!
Hi!!!!!! I’ve missed you guys! I feel like I have been gone forever! I took the week of Thanksgiving off of blogging to spend some time with family and friends. Did you all have a good Thanksgiving? We had a wonderful time and heaps of fantastic food!
Enough about Thanksgiving. On to the next holiday! It’s Christmas time, peeps! Woot! It’s really feeling Christmas-y here in Colorado what with all the snow we are getting today! I’ve been eagerly waiting to share this recipe with all of you. Remember last year when I shared not one but 2 (here and here) secret family recipes for Christmas candies?? Well, this year the old traditionals were made, but I wanted to add something new to the mix. Let me preface these caramel pecan turtles with this… if you don’t like pecans, or caramel, or chocolate… leave now. Run. Flee. Personally, I believe that the combination of those 3 items is worthy of a Chandler Bing dance…. in a good way.
Anywho. On to the recipe!
I’m going to be honest. This recipe has been a long time coming. I’ve been wanting to make homemade cream cheese danish for months now. But I keep putting it off. I don’t know why. These were so simple to make! I think I was just nervous that they wouldn’t turn out as good as the ones I buy. But in all seriousness, I’m a pastry fiend. That’s right. A fiend. I would hoard pastries if it wasn’t “socially unacceptable”. I have often said to the hubby that if I had to choose a different profession, I would be a pastry chef. My latest obsession has been with these easy cream cheese danish.
