2018 was a pretty great year for my family, from taking our son to meet the ocean for the first time in Myrtle Beach with his grandparents, to graduating from his Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic as he was born a micro preemie. Makes one feel truly thankful 💕 At this time I’d like to wish all of you a very happy, healthy and fabulous 2019 ahead!! May you create new recipes and memories for yourselves and loved ones 🎉🍾🥂🎊
The holidays are always a crazy time, trying to find the perfect gifts, decorating and baking. This year was a blur for us as we had some flooding issues, and didn’t get back into our condo until a few days before Christmas. But, at least we were home for the holidays and that’s all that matters!! Speaking of which, I decided to make a roast for Christmas Day in our Crock Pot. It was great, as it cooked while we opened presents and spent the day watching Christmas shows with our son. I had to cook it on HIGH for 4 hours, since we got a late start on it, but it turned out great!! The photo above is showing you the remnants of leftovers, as I forgot to take a photo before we ate LOL Recipe was super simple…placed the 3lb roast in the middle and placed the carrots, celery, onions and potatoes around it. If you have your own spice blend, then add it with beef broth to the pot. I added a package of Club House’s wet pot roast spice blend, then set the Crock Pot and let it do it’s thing. Will definitely make pot roast this way again!!
How cute are these cupcakes?!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, filled with lots of good food to eat, good spirits to drink and wonderful people to enjoy it all with!! Here’s to a fantastic 2017!!
Made these Coconut Cocoa Balls, just now, as I had been looking for a recipe to try out. They were SUPER simple, and now chilling in the fridge!! We did taste test, and with the peppermint extract I put in, it was pretty good 🙂 I’ll definitely try almond extract the next time I make them, because as much as I’m a fan of rum, I don’t like them in these LOL I have a feeling, these will be our new, New Year’s Day tradition…omnomnom.
Hi everyone!! Hope you’re having a great new year so far, and had a wonderful holiday season!! Sorry I’m just posting now, but I’ve really only gotten used to being back from our trip to Turkey. The way of life is so wonderful…much slower pace. Then again we were on vacation LOL Alas we had to come back though, and hope to go back as soon as we possibly can 🙂
So, to start off my new year of blogging, I’m going to leave you with an adorable Hello Kitty Cake!! How cute is this?! Especially with the glasses…LOVE!!
