I tried out some new recipes this year and wanted to share them with you. They were all AMAZING! No kidding - if you need any recipes, try these- they work and they are delicious!! (The pictures are not mine - they are from the site I got the recipe from). The funny thing is, while writing this post I realized how much cooking I've done this year, and I don't even really like to cook. But when you have recipes you know are going to be good, it is more fun!
Turkey Brine (You soak your turkey in this overnight and it makes for the most moist, delicious turkey after you cook it the next day!)
Green Bean Casserole (this one is not made with the traditional cream of mushroom soup, but a homemade sour cream base- even Martin loved this and he's not a fan of this casserole normally)
Homemade Pumpkin Pie
(No Bake) Peanut Butter Cup Pie (This pie practically has made me famous around here lately. I got it from a Kraft magazine that I receive and it was to DIE for!)
Sugar Cookies (Hands down the BEST Sugar Cookie recipe I have ever used. Be sure to refrigerate the dough for at least an hour before cooking, or at least stick it in the freezer for 30 min.)
Cranberry Scones (You can give this mix out in a jar as a gift! Each batch makes 2 gifts)
Holiday Jam (this one is challenging but the jam turned out beautifully!)
Do you have a favorite holiday recipe? Share it with us by leaving a comment and connect back to your blog. Have a great Christmas week!!
