A week from today I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my side of the family. I am so excited to be back home. This is the longest I have been without seeing them, nine months to be exact. This week will probably go by slowly, but at least I know good things are coming!
Here is a recap of recipes that caught my eye this past week:
- I am especially on the look out this time of year for anything that might be a good addition to the Christmas goodies I make each year. The Tasty Kitchen blog showcased a recipe for Burnt Sugar Almonds that would make a great gift addition.
- My husband and I have been reading labels at the grocery store trying to be as conscience as possible about staying away from corn syrup. I have a few good baking recipes that call for corn syrup as an ingredient. The Kitchn posted an alternative to corn syrup, Cane Sugar Syrup, that will make the perfect replacement.
- Just last week I was looking for a good granola recipe, but didn’t want to have to buy unusually items that I don’t keep in the pantry. The Comfort of Cooking posted a recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars that includes most pantry staples.
- Each week I always seem to find a new chocolate and peanut butter recipe that catches my eye. This week was no exception as Sweet Peas Kitchen posted a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies that I can’t wait to make.
