The Roast Of Christmas Past (Classic Pot Roast)

Lady Behind The Curtain - The Roast Of Christmas Past (Classic Pot Roast)

This is a classic pot roast with vegetables cooked in a savory cranberry sauce.  This recipe is from The LooneSpoons Collection.  I thought the addition of cranberry sauce to the gravy was unique and quite appropriate for the holiday season.  I was NOT disappointed.  This pot roast was tender and full of delicious flavor.  So good in fact that the leftovers were just as good as the first night.   HERE is the link to my book review on The LooneySpoons Collection Cookbook.  This recipe can be found on page 228. COMFORMT FOOD AT ITS FINEST! The Roast of Christmas Past … Continue reading

Lady Behind The Curtain - Spiral Cookie Lollipop-Party Favor

POSSIBLY THE CUTEST PARTY FAVOR EVER! As soon as I  saw the idea for using a floral vial at bettycrocker.com I started brain storming on ideas of what I could do with them and where I could find the vials at a reasonable price.  I got mine from the floral department in my Safeway for only .10 cents each.  Great price right? Spiral Cookie Lollipop-Party Favor Recipe (makes 2-1/2 dozen) Ingredients 2 cups plus 4 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup powdered sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1-1/4 cups butter, softened 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla … Continue reading

Ginger Snap and Eggnog Cookie Pops

Lady Behind The Curtain - Ginger Snap and Eggnog Cookie Pops

 My two favorite holiday flavors come together in these fun and festive cookie pops.  I named them cookie pops because that’s what I used!  NO BAKING in the making of these cookie pops and NO SUGARY FROSTING!  I’m truly NOT a fan of the “cake pop” they are too sweet for me.  But I really liked these cookie pops.  The ground up ginger snap cookies take the place of cake and eggnog truffles serve as the frosting.  Wilton has a NEW holiday candy melt flavor EGGNOG!  Add some fun to your CHRISTMAS DESSERT TABLE or give as PARTY FAVORS! I chose … Continue reading
