I hope that all of you reading who celebrate Christmas, as I do, have had a merry one! Chances are you’re not done celebrating yet; that’s a good thing! Like Sharon of What the Fork Food Blog, I always have some holiday parties to attend after Christmas, with a New Year’s Eve “bash” being one of them. Now when it’s a New Year’s bash, I’m referring to a small affair—a simple gathering of a few friends. We’ve never gone in for the really extravagant celebrations to ring in the New Year. So Sharon’s Holiday Trail Mix would be ideal for me—and probably you, too—to make in 5 minutes and take to a party. Well, any party really. A late Christmas affair, a ring-in-the-New-Year fete, or any party throughout the year. We’d actually enjoy these on one of our camping adventures as well.
This is the time of year when wrapping one’s hands around a mug of a hot and tasty beverage seems like just about the most wonderful thing in the world. Don’t you agree? Well, if you’re not convinced or want to confirm this fact just one more time, this Hot Cider Smoothie from The Mommy Bowl should do the trick!
There are two flavors that always get top billing in the fall—pumpkin and apple. I have an epic gluten-free pumpkin dessert roundup coming up soon here on All Gluten-Free Desserts, but it’s something super delicious featuring apple that caught my eye today. Specifically, these Apple Fritter Bites from Johnna of In Johnna’s Kitchen!
