Happy Holidays!

Hello Everyone!

It’s the Holiday Season! I definitely sang that as I was writing it, but…

The holiday greetings are coming in on my phone…

The presents are sitting around the tree in wait…

The annual holiday gathering is being prepped…

what more can I ask for?

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! And Merry every other holiday to you and your loved ones!

Happy Holidays! Today we are making a Croissant Bread Pudding with Chocolate!

That and the NSSSO loves it (possibly too much).

So grab a gym body and let’s start the recipe!

Sugee* Butter Cookies

WELCOME TO WEEK TWO OF CURIOSITY TO THE OVEN X J:ETUDE COLLABORATION!!

Oddly, There’s not much to say for these cookies. I like them, and have turned off some friend when they were watching the process. When I say these are butter cookies… I really do mean that they are BUTTER cookies.

The trick to melting white chocolate is to be VERY CAREFUL with the heat. If the heat is on too high, the chocolate will clump, so it is always better to work with a lower temperature rather than trying to speed up the process by turning up the heat.
