All in Christmas

Peppermint White Chocolate Macarons

Sweet, delicate peppermint french macarons sandwiched with a rich white chocolate ganache. These macaron cookies are lightly peppermint-flavored, and perfectly paired with the white chocolate filling. What makes macarons so delightful is their light and chewy texture that is almost addictive. The way I wax on poetically about them, would you believe it if I told you I used to dislike them? Yepp, at one point I thought I hated them. That is, until I attempted making them for myself..

Cranberry Salsa

As weird as the words cranberry and salsa sound together, cranberry salsa is actually really good! Think of it as salsa's sweeter cousin with a little pizzaz. It's tart, tangy, a little sweet, with a little bit of spicy. Of course the spicy-ness is all up to you and how heavy your jalepeño hand is. 

Eggnog Latte

I'm usually a latte purist. I like my lattes with espresso and steamed milk. No sugar, no flavorings, nothing. If it ain't broke don't fix it-am I right? But Paul loves all the holiday flavored lattes there are to offer, and his favorite being the eggnog latte. Since I bought some eggnog for some baking ideas, he requested a homemade eggnog latte.
