Food Coma


The food coma we had over the weekend is just the beginning of a whole month of food comas ahead.

My baking for the Christmas party in 2 weeks in almost done. I have loads of cookies frozen and a short list of things that need to be made at the last minute.


My mom has reminded me that as full as my hands are this year, next year will be even more... chaotic.


I've been eating pecan pie directly out of the tin.

FYI: Both of the above pies are Pioneer Woman's recipe. I used a mixer to beat the filling for the one on the left. Obviously the filling needs to be hand mixed otherwise you incorporate too much air.

Gingerbread loves the Peanut

With the amount of pie I've had Peanut is probably getting pecan, pumpkin and butter flavored breast milk.


I tried a new recipe that I'll be sharing with you. Did you notice the not-so-secret ingredient?

That's right, bacon. Caramel Pumpkin Bars with bacon!


  1. Wow, it seems like I was just reading about all the cookies you made for Christmas!!! This year flew by!!
