Cheesy Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Hello friends! Tis the season for goodies and appetizers! I figured since I have been posting a lot of my goodies that I have been making this year that I would post about a fabulous appetizer.
Its cheesy and gooey, pretty much everything you want to eat around the holidays. Yes it may not be the most nutritious recipe out there, but hey the holidays are for eating food that taste good and aren't good for you so that you gain weight and make a new years resolution to exercise...which inevitably ends within the first month. Sigh.
BUT this recipe will get great reviews from friends and family. I personally had this recipe over Thanksgiving break as an appetizer before our big Thanksgiving day meal at my sisters house. She always manages to find such fantastic recipes although I don't know how I haven't tried this one before because it is from a very popular site that I have used quite a few times. The recipe comes from Our Best Bites! It is one of their earlier recipes. They really do have some fantastic recipes in their collection so if your looking for another blog to look through (besides my own of course) then hop on over to them and check it out.

Russian Tea Cakes

This is a new recipe that has been added to my Christmas goodie must haves this year. I had never had one of these types of cookies before until I went to my sisters house last year for Christmas. Pretty sure I ended up eating more then half of the batch that they had made. I was addicted to these and couldn't wait to get the recipe so that I could make some this year.
Well I just bought the ingredients yesterday and can't wait to make these little delights tomorrow!!
The cookies are filled with pecans, rolled to perfection, and dusted heavily with powdered sugar!

French Chocolate

If you have ever been to my parents house around the holidays you know my mothers love for this recipe. She makes it every year to go along with Christmas breakfast.
What is french chocolate? It is a really thick creme mixture that you mix into hot milk for a rich, deep, hot chocolate. So if you are a lover of hot chocolate during this cold season this is a recipe you should try.

Homemade Eggnog (no alcohol)

I can't believe it is almost Christmas! Where has the time gone? I know its been a while since I posted a recipe, lately I have been going back through all the recipes on here and haven't really been trying anything new.
This recipe is not one that is new to me. I have had this eggnog recipe every year at Christmas since I was a little girl. Normal homemade eggnog is made with alcohol, and since I don't drink alcohol this is a great and perfect recipe for me to have, since the store bought eggnog leaves something to be desired.
I have very fond memories of helping my mom in the kitchen around Christmas time. But this was always my favorite drink to have while opening Christmas presents! ENJOY!
