I will continue to post advent resources and update my Advent at home post throughout the season but I will also be blogging about the usual things (namely food and books.)
Baked Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce from Dinner, A Love Story: Simple, budget-friendly (I subbed ricotta for the marscapone) and everyone ate a big helping. Doubled the sauce and served over pasta.
Chicken & Dumplings from Simply Recipes: A cold snap was the perfect opportunity to try this. It won’t be the last time I make it, as it is a solid rendition of a comfort food and we all enjoyed it.
Chocolate Chess Pie from Angus Barn: Very good. 1.5x it for a standard pie plate and it still could have been thicker.
Pumpkin Cheesecake from Martha Stewart: Subbed brown sugar and gingersnaps in the crust (abt 2:1 graham to gingersnap). Served with homemade caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream. Delicious!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins from Annie’s Eats: Awesome. They seem more fussy than they are, the filling and the topping are really easy.
Sweet Potato Casserole from Southern Living: I dubbed this the I Corinthians 9 casserole, all things to all people. With both marshmallows and crunchy cornflake topping, who can resist?
You can find these on my keepers board on pinterest, too.
