Cinnamon Log Slice Cookies #FilltheCookieJar

It’s time to #FilltheCookieJar again and this month’s theme is Christmas cookies!!!

I just love making Christmas cookies!  I never run out of ideas for Christmas cookies! 

For this event, though, I wanted to make log slice cookies, because I’ve had my eye on them since last Christmas!  And last year I ran out of time and already had a million cookies made and I just couldn’t justify it!

Thankfully, I can be pretty patient when I need to, so I put these cookies on the back burner until it was finally Christmas season again!

Garject from DreamFarm #Giveaway

*Disclosure: I received a complimentary Garject from DreamFarm.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A few months ago, I snapped the handle right off my garlic press – I was super bummed, because I used it a lot and really liked the one I had.

I bought a replacement, but I just wasn’t happy with it, but I didn’t think any of the other readily available garlic presses would be any better, so I resigned myself to mediocrity.

Then DreamFarm contacted me wondering if I’d like to test one of their products.  I looked around their website and found tons of very fun, innovative kitchen gadgets, including the Garject – a garlic press that presses garlic, scrapes the press clean, and then ejects the peel! 

It was destiny – I received the Garject and fell in love!  It is the BEST garlic press I’ve used so far (including that beloved garlic press I broke).  It makes pressing garlic a breeze, and clean up even easier!!  Even Hubs was impressed!

DreamFarm is a small company that started in the founder’s backyard shed. 

According to the adorable video found on their website, DreamFarm is “the problem solving company that grows ideas into inventions”

They firmly believe that “a great design must solve a problem, and to be the best, you must do what has never been done before.”

Check out DreamFarm on their website or on social media.

DreamFarm has all kinds of fun kitchen gadgets like the Scizza (pizza scissors), Levups or Levoons (measuring cups & spoons that include a scraper for easy leveling – plus they nest for storage!)

Now, who wants a Garject of their very own?!?

Classic Pumpkin Pie

Classic Pumpkin Pie is must this Thanksgiving!

Is there anything better than pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving?

I actually make pumpkin pie more often than Thanksgiving.  Spud LOVES all things fall and winter and though his birthday is in early August when the temperature is scorching, I am usually found making knoephla soup and pumpkin pie for his birthday meal!

This year, spud was dying to roast his own pumpkins and make a pie.  So we made one in last month (0nce we were able to acquire pie pumpkins).  He was thrilled with his pie and immediately wanted to make one to bring to his Nana & Papa’s house for Thanksgiving, too!

Bacon & Avocado Deviled Eggs #FantasticalFoodFight

Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs are a fun twist on a classic!

Welcome to the first Fantastical Food Fight!!

In FFF, participants are given a recipe theme, interpret it as they will and then share on the selected day.  Our first food fight features deviled eggs!

I don’t often make deviled eggs (mostly because I’m lazy).  In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever made them myself!  I know I’ve definitely been passed a bowl of mashed yolks and been asked to finish the deviled eggs at holidays, but I’ve never been in charge.

This changes today!

I decided to pull in a couple of my favorite flavors for these deviled eggs – bacon and avocado!!  Because bacon and avocado made everything better!  Oh and then sriracha too, because why not?!?
