Happy Saturday! It's been a long week and I am thrilled that the weekend is finally here. I had a crazy week at work, then my laptop decided to die on me. It's been in the shop for a few days and I finally got it back last night, but unfortunately that meant I missed a few days of brunch week. I'm so bummed I didn't get a chance to share a couple of my favorite recipes with you, but I'm very excited to end the week with this amazing Strawberry Bread Pudding! A twist on traditional bread pudding, it's full of fresh strawberries and strawberry preserves, making it the perfect dish for breakfast or brunch.

Hello friends! I know it's been a little quiet around here lately and I apologize for that. You see, I started a new job the first of the year which has rocked. my. world. I love the job and love what I do but it is extremely busy. I've been working 9+ hour days and still keeping up with the normal mom/family/animal/household stuff, which has left me a bit tired haha. I finally feel like I'm getting into a nice routine and am excited to be recipe developing, cooking and photographing once again. What that means for you is new recipes...yeah!

Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and got to spend some time relaxing with family and friends. This is my first post of 2018, one that I had hoped to have done much sooner. The holidays were so busy and this past week was absolutely nuts at work. I feel like I didn't have much time to breathe! The last few weeks I've really been reflecting on this past year and wanted to share a little bit with you. 

I had much success and many wonderful opportunities in 2017. Cooking, baking, sharing my recipes with you, connecting with and building relationships with some wonderful brands. I went on a few amazing trips and got to meet new friends and see old friends as well. If you follow me on social media then you may have seen my posts about my trip to Cleveland with the American Dairy Association Mideast back in October. It was definitely one of the highlights of my year and I had so much fun learning, playing, and eating tons of good food!

I've never been one to go out on New Years Eve, at least ever since I've had kids. Sure when I was young I did, but I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually went on NYE over the past 20 years. I know some people love going out that night, but I've always enjoyed staying in and watching football during the day and then watching all the fun festivities on TV at night. I also do a big appetizer spread which typically consists of our favorites, including my mom's famous shrimp dip and her delicious BBQ meatballs, but each year I love to surprise everyone with some new dishes as well. This year I'm adding this Hot Onion Cheese Dip to the table because not only is it delicious, but it's really easy to make too!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve, my friends! I can't believe that Christmas is just two days away. It certainly has come fast this year and I still have a few things to finish up before I'm officially ready. What can I say, I'm a procrastinator! I've got my shopping done but I have plenty to wrap. I guess we all know what I'll be doing today. 😉 Before the holiday gets here I just had to share one more of my favorite recipes with you...Christmas Stollen Bread! Stollen bread originated in Germany and is basically a sweet bread containing dried fruits and covered in powdered sugar. Sounds delicious, right? Well it is!
