Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls

These  Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls are a fun and tasty party food for your New Years Eve celebration! They take some time to make, but most of the time spent is on prep, cutting and dicing, so they can be rolled earlier in the day, or even the day before and fried up before guests arrive. They stay hot for quite a while, and even at room temperature they are fantastic! I have also made these for vegetarian guests, and they were a hit. Just leave out the chicken!

Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait / #FLStrawberry / #SundaySupper

Strawberries in the winter! Can you believe it? As a little girl growing up, we seldom had fresh fruit in the winter. It was unheard of. When I would have a craving for strawberries and there was snow on the ground in Ohio, I was told to "wait for summer"! Ugh, do you know how long that is when you are 8 years old? F-o-r-e-v-e-r!  But now I am an adult and one of the things I am loving~Fresh from Florida Strawberries! And I mean FRESH!, and in the winter! I can enjoy A Taste of Summer All Winter Long! These strawberries are amazing. I tasted them and I immediately had to make this Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait. It is such a great way to start your day. This recipe contains 8 strawberries, which just so happens to be enough to fullfill your Vitamin C requirements for the day, and they are only 50 calories! You can find out more about Florida Strawberries from Strawberry Sue!

Peppermint Candy Cane Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This month for the Bundt Bakers group the theme is "Naughty or Nice". Isn't that cute? I was tempted to do a naughty cake just for fun, but I baked a "nice" cake because I already had everything! Yes, sometimes I am that boring and practical! This Peppermint Candy Cane Bundt Cake is fun and tasty and cute, so I think it hits all the marks for something you would enjoy!

Mittens and Hats Sugar Cookies/ #FBCookieSwap

I love Christmas cookies, so when it comes time for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap every holiday season, I am definitely in! This year I sent my three secret bloggers my Mittens and Hats Sugar Cookies. This sugar cookie recipe is one of my favorites! It is not difficult to make, but the decorating does take some time. If you are looking for a special sugar cookie recipe, this is the one!

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is more than just a cookie swap. We raise money to donate to Cookies for Kids Cancer, and we work with some wonderful sponsors. This year our sponsors are Dixie Crystals, Land 'O Lakes, and OXO! Isn't that a great list?! Thank you to all of the wonderful sponsors!

Cranberry Panna Cotta/#SundaySupper


 This year's Annual Holiday Bash menu is set. The dishes have been taken down from the high shelves and washed, the silverware has been polished and is looking shiny and new, the linens have been pressed, the wine glasses have been washed and the invitations have been delivered. I have decorated the tree, strung some lights, and put a wreath on the door. Every year, I plan a menu with at least one new entrĂ©e or dessert for my guests to enjoy. This year the menu includes this Cranberry Panna Cotta for dessert, and I will be serving it with two Gallo Family Vineyards wines: a crisp Moscato and a tasty Pinot Grigio. The Cranberry Panna Cotta with the light bodied, refreshing Moscato and the citrus flavor of the Pinot Grigio are the perfect pairing for the big bash.
