I have the incredible luck of working with women who not only know how to cook but are willing to share their recipes. With the cold-front that's moved in we've been enjoying (a little) winter weather. This, coupled with the impending holidays, has created a heavenly outpouring of detailed accounts of foods that warm the body and soul.
And what better way is there to warm oneself while filling your belly than with a soupy delight? A couple friends from work, Mauna and Page, have shared their recipes for a yummy bacon corn chowder. It's creamy, tasty, and oh-so-easy. I have combined both of their recipes and added a couple spices of my own. Mauna has told me this chowder pairs well with some cheesy biscuits or a tuna melt. Yum!
So let's start with food.
This terrible photo displays a crescent roll jelly "doughnut" I made. Raspberry. Very yum, baby.
Here are the treats I made for our elementary fundraiser. These are chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels with sprinkles.
Here is my very first attempt at making baklava and using phyllo dough. I will definitely be making this again. I'm feeling a tropical version may be likely...
And sunsets. Because who doesn't love sunsets?
Love from me to you.
Except for douches. No love for you.
I know it doesn't look like much from my camera phone but it was uber yummy. This has all the fixings, which makes this the type of nachos you serve with a spatula and better eaten with a fork.
