I am so excited to all the SMP Romance Authors here at Paranormal and Romantic Suspense Reviews with a Spotlight and Guest Post.
Thanks to all the authors and St. Martin's Press/MacMillian for allowing me to join your SMP Romance and Swerve Blog Tour!
Please take it away, everyone!
Favorite Holiday Food
Ruth Logan Herne
We've got a great eggnog pie recipe, it's positively decadent! Here's the link to our cooking with the authors website "The Yankee Belle Cafe". http://yankeebellecafe.blogspot.com/search/label/Eggnog pie
Savory or sweet? There's a Chocolate Chip Cheeseball recipe I got from Debbie Macomber's site that I've modified that I love (plus: cookies!), and for savory, I make sausage-stuffed mushrooms that are easy and so tasty!
My go-to potluck take-along...plus I make it every holiday. Basically whenever I can get away with it, because it is SO good.
2 bunches of broccoli, chopped
1/2 lbs cooked bacon, crumbled (I use the pouches of bacon bit to avoid the mess of cooking bacon)
1/2 med red onion, diced
1/2 cup golden or brown raisins
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
1 cup Mayo (Duke's, of course:)
2T white vinegar
1/4-1/2 cup white sugar
Mix together broccoli, onion, raisins, sunflower seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together mayo, vinegar, and sugar and pour over salad. Mix gently. Chill for several hours or overnight to blend flavors. (This isn't mandatory, but does improve the taste). Just before serving, add bacon and cheese.
I did these videos last year while watching the Hallmark Movie~THE NOTE. Kelsey Browning and I co-author a fun southern cozy series called The Granny Series. There is a clip of her and then one of me in each of these fine uncut - unedited raw videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBSJEi3ZQ3E The recipe for FaLaLa-LaLa-La Bon Bons is available as a PDF on my website www.NancyNaigle.com. I also have two recipe cards printed up for cookies from my book, CHRISTMAS JOY. I can send those to you if you'd like! I'll be posting them on my website as a free download after the book releases.
Our Christmas dinner is five star dining at its best. That's because my son-in-law is an executive chef and he treats us every year to prime rib with all the trimmings. I never ask for recipes because then I might be tempted to try them.
My mom's shortbread. Hands down. It tastes like Christmas and home the way nothing else does.
Turkey (dark meat) and stuffing. Mmm. Unfortunately, now that I’m following the Paleo diet, making a stuffing I can eat is a challenge!
I find a new favorite every year in the recipe exchange cookbook I put together from recipes sent in by my readers. Watch my Facebook page or join my mailing list for info on how to get your copy!
My grandmother makes the best fruit cake from scratch, and that's no joke. I would share the recipe, but when I make it, it never turns out like Grandma's, because she must put some secret ingredients in hers.
My all time favorite holiday food is stuffing at Thanksgiving. Carbs be damned!
