Instant Pot Pumpkin Butternut Squash Bisque

A new year is here!! πŸŽ‰ And after loads of festive treats and meals, it’s good to get back to normal. Though let’s be real, we still have some treats around πŸ˜‰πŸͺ🍫🍬

So today I chose to make this pumpkin butternut squash bisque, since I had leftover roasted pumpkin from the freezer I wanted to use up. Once prep was done, it cooked in 14mins on high pressure, which was great! As for the soup itself, it wasn’t bad, but honestly not too much flavour. Nothing more vegetables and spices couldn’t fix though. I would say it’s a good base and for now hot sauce will add just the right kick it needs for us this time around.

Instant Pot BBQ Dr. Pepper Cocktail Meatballs Recipe

We got an Instant Pot for Black Friday in November and I love it!! Already made a pot roast dinner, which was great. So decided on making this recipe to take to my parents for New Year’s Eve. Can’t go wrong with only 3 ingredients, and I have never made meatballs with pop. They turned out pretty good…not too sweet and great either on its own or over rice. Will definitely make these again in 2019!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!πŸŽ„

Hope you all had a wonderful day spent with family and friends yesterday!! Our Christmas Day was spent with family opening presents, playing and watching classic Christmas specials and movies β˜ΊοΈπŸŽ„πŸŽ…

We had spent Christmas Eve making a treat, we’ll be giving away to family and friends, we still have to see as part of their gifts. I chose to make these holiday pretzel m&m kiss treats this year, because they were super easy and our 3 year old son could help out for some of them ☺πŸ₯¨πŸ«

The most tedious part was taking off the wrapping for the Hershey Kisses. This time I made them according to the recipe with milk chocolate kisses, but next time I’ll use the candy cane kisses for the festive peppermint flavourπŸŽ„We’ve all enjoyed the combination of salty pretzel with sweet chocolate and these are much easier then making dipped pretzels. I will definitely make these again! βœ”οΈ

Cherry Cola Flavour Creme Oreos

Got these while in the U.S. not too long ago, and gave them a try the other night. As much as the name of these Oreos sounds yummy, to my hubby and I they weren’t. For one thing, I didn’t feel anything from the popping candy side and the cherry cola flavour itself was off. They say there’s an Oreo for everyone right? πŸ˜‰ This one just wasn’t ours. We also bought the Peanut Butter Pie Oreos…will be trying those ones next!

Starbucks Cardamom Latte

Today was cool enough to have a hot latte, so I decided to try the Cardamom Latte from Starbucks. It tasted okay and not so sweet with only 1 shot instead of the standard 2 in a grande size. If you like chai tea, you’ll probably enjoy this latte. But if you’re into the sweeter options on the menu, this one may be too tame for you πŸ˜‰

Chocxo Organic Almond Butter Cups

Saw these at Costco tonight and we thought we’d give them a try. First I’ll say they were pretty good and we enjoyed the taste of the almond butter. It’s nowhere near as sweet as a Reese’s PB Cup, which is nice! Our son even put his stamp of approval on it πŸ™‚ But I must say, I personally like milk chocolate for this particular treat. Which is not to say that I don’t like darker chocolate, because I do! We’ll continue to enjoy these chocolatey goodies for sure though and even buy them again.

Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s still too early and hot for me to even contemplate having the warmer version of the beloved PSL. And I’ve had the frapp version, though good, the taste was too strong for me. Which is why I decided to try the iced latte version and it did. not. disappoint!! SOOO much better then the frapp to me, and I love frapps most of the time. So until the weather gets cooler, I’ll stick to the iced version.

Cheers Everyone!! πŸ™‚
