White Chocolate Mint Fudge

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

I love to make sweet little bites for our Christmas party every year, those tiny little morsels that guests can grab and I don’t have to worry about slicing up portions and serving them formally.  One guaranteed way to satisfy guests’ sweet tooth is with a little fudge, and this is my white chocolate mint version.  It’s less sweet than most fudge recipes and tastes more like cheesecake.

The addition of mint extract gives it a wintery flavor but you can edit it out if you prefer pure chocolate.  It’s incredibly easy to make and it’s one of my favorite treats to serve guests during the holidays!

Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers – 20 Recipes!

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Today I’m cooking up a turkey and we’ll be bringing a Thanksgiving meal to Great Grandma Verna tomorrow (she’s 103!) but we’ll keep most of the turkey at home to use over the next week.

For our official Thanksgiving feast, we’ll get together with friends and family at my Aunt’s house tomorrow.  I’m always looking for new ways to use leftover turkey and I rounded up 20 scrumptious looking recipes, a few of which I’ll definitely try.
