Christmas Morning Country Breakfast Bread Pudding ((in a jar)) — a new Food for a Year recipe for Sinkology!

This is my very most favorite breakfast recipe – with a fun twist! Normally, I make this breakfast bread pudding in a deep 9″ x 13″ baker. We have it frequently for dinner throughout the year – but every Christmas morning this is a MUST in my home. I always assemble it in the late hours of Christmas Eve, after those last presents are wrapped & all of my “Santa-helping” tasks are finally complete. Continue reading

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer — ((no bake)) cookies??

I few weeks ago I can across one of the cutest Christmas cookie ideas I think I have ever seen – when I viewed this Pin of Pinterest. At first glance, I could tell these bright red cookie balls were not dipped and with that little detail, my curiosity was peaked. I proceeded to click on the Pin and scroll through a slew of cute photos until I came across the recipe. Continue reading

Pecan, Cranberry & Chive Party Mix: a Party Mix for the 21st Century

Worcestershire and garlic with salty peanuts and some mini melba rounds. That is immediately what I think of when I here the words “Party” and “Mix” put side by side in a sentence. ((Either that or a little Milli Vanilli, Blame it on the Rain mixed with Prince’s Party like it’s 1999 – but that is another story altogether, and not a very good one I might add.)) Well, it seems to me it is time to bring this tired party food out of 1984! That is just what I did. But before I share the “BIG REVEAL”, Continue reading

Pecan Fingers – A vintage recipe that earned “Keeper” status decades ago!

A few weeks ago, mom cookie pie bars made these for the Schuermann Family. She made them because she knew they were one of Ken and Alice’s favorite. As I took the first bite, I remembered how delicious these treats are and thought to myself “Why haven’t I made these??”. That mental whisper was quickly followed by a directive: “You will be making these and sharing them with the world ((via Food for a Year – however small that world may be)). Because, what the world needs now is this cookie bar perfection.”

Mom’s Simple Cranberry Salad

Well, mom told me it came from Laura’s mom – but since Laura’s mom is a mom and the cranberry salad is so very simple, I will still call it “Mom’s Simple Cranberry Salad”. But what you really need to know, besides it’s simplicity and mom origins, is that is tastes REALLY good! And — I bet at least one ingredient will surprise you!
