Eggnog Creme Brulee/#FoodieExtravaganza

When I learned that eggnog was the ingredient to use this month for #FoodieExtravanza I was so excited! I had been wanting to make Eggnog Creme Brulee for a while now, and now that I have, I can't believe I waited this long. It is rich, creamy, and has an incredible flavor! 
It will make the perfect ending for your Christmas dinner!

Thanksgiving Monster Cookies

 As a child growing up Thanksgiving dessert was always for the adults. Pies, pies everywhere! Well, when I was little, I didn't like pies, and neither did anyone else at the kids table. So there was no dessert for us! That is where the Thanksgiving Monster Cookies idea came from. These cookies have most of the things that kids love like.........
chocolate chips, Reese's Pieces, raisins, and caramel.
Plus you can use sugar or a sugar substitute.
And, they can be made ahead of time!!!!!

Check out this yummy recipe at Bacon Time with the Hungry Hypo.
I brought these cookies and the recipe when I visited yesterday!
Thanks for stopping by and have a 
Happy and Joyous Thanksgiving!

Sensational Shrimp Scampi

Are you a shrimp lover?
 Me too!
 Do you like yours boiled, grilled, sauteed, or fried?
Me too!
The beauty of shrimp is that it is so versatile.
 It can be used as an appetizer, a soup or salad,
a side dish, or an entree, and there are just so many ways to prepare it.
So a few days ago I decided to go scampi style and it was incredible!
I received some packs of spices from Healthy Solutions Spice Blends to try out, and the
Shrimp Scampi blend had a recipe on the back that turned out to be a definite winner!
