Santa, what were you thinking?
I’ll spare you all the wide angle view, it only gets worse.
Somehow we survived the morning with the help of Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls. A couple of unsuspecting neighbors also got me in my jammies delivering these hot from the oven. I believe in togetherness indulging…there’s less calories that way.
This is something I’ve been working on for quite some time. I think I finally nailed it, Crown Roast of Pork with Fennel-Apple Stuffing and a Cider-Bourbon Reduction. All I can say is, wow. It was worth the effort.
I know you all wanted a head shot.
Here is my Red Velvet Cheesecake before I frosted it. What do you notice? NO CRACKS! I hate cracks in cheesecake. It wouldn’t have mattered so much with this one since it was going to be frosted, but still, I dislike the cracks. Some say cracks make cheesecake more rustic looking…me…not so much. I used Recipe Girl’s method of a water bath during cooking and it really worked. No cracks. I am forever in debt.
I really need to clean my house as it has been taken over by toys.
As I tucked my six-year old into bed and kissed him goodnight he said, “I can’t believe my Birthday is in nine days. I can’t wait!”
