It’s December and although we still don’t have snow here on the North Coast of British Columbia, I still feel that nip in the air. Something that really comforts me this time of year is soup. Last night I made this Roasted Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup and it was delicious. So out came the leftovers and the camera.
I’m not a D.I.Y-er; I don’t have the patience and I’m just not all that crafty. This year I wanted to change that. After falling in love with a ruffled tree skirt on Etsy (but not with the $180 price tag) I decided that this was going to be the project to tackle.
Have you participated in the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats For Toys campaign yet? Last week I told you all about this amazing opportunity to give back to a family in need, but if you forget the details here they are:
‘Tis the season for homemade gifts! I have decided this year to make my own gifts for our families. I was excited to start scouring the internet for ideas, but I also wanted them to be simple enough that I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed as I counted on two hands the number of family members I had to make gifts for. There is definitely no need for extra stress during the holiday season and gift giving should be fun, right?
I have never made a Rice Krispies Treat in my adult life. Well, until today that is. I never thought of doing it before, but with the Treats for Toys Holiday Program there is no better time to start.
It’s fall here on the North Coast (however; with the light dusting of snow this morning it’s starting to look a lot like winter) and for me that means comfort foods. I’m talking warm, heart meals that speak to your heart. The problem with those meals is that it also goes straight to your waist line. Bret Johnson’s Turkey Chili recipe takes care of that with giving you the comfort food you crave, but at under 300 calories a cup – you won’t blow your nutrition for the day.
I’m already planning Christmas (don’t roll your eyes at me). I’ve been informed that this year I’m hosting it at my house and I’m trying to plan every detail from the menu to what we’re wearing.
