Merry making

Stitched up this.....I am a little slow this year...

This is a picture of the family dessert competition. My eggnog cake is missing in the picture. It was tasty and the judges liked it, but it did not win : (

This is one of the winners along with the cake in the jar! It was a lot of fun!

So after all the food and fun... time for a more nutritional way of eating. I found these at the library.

This book is beautifully illustrated and is family friendly. Enchiladas, breakfast potatoes, Sherried tomato soup, skillet cornbread just to name a few recipes....mmmm!


  1. Marie, the Pioneer Woman cookbook is one of my favs - I have made many of those recipes The Olive Cheese bread is soooo good. We had it last night with spagetti. (: That dessert table looks so yummy. I am looking forward to having January be my healthy eating month - lots of fish and verggies here.

  2. Lovely stitching. And those little mice cookies are so cute. Eggnog cake sounds yummy! I'm vegetarian so that vegetable cookbook would be right up my alley. But enchiladas, breakfast potatoes, tomato soup and skillet cornbread sound great too. Yum! Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  3. So sweet Marie..I love your stitching and your little mice...very clever!
    Sending you warmest wishes for a wonderful New Year Marie...may it be filled with peace, love and you for you and your family throughout the year.

  5. Hi T's Daily Treasures, (Tammy)

    Those mice were really cute and oh so clever. My niece made them.
    What was really funny is that the tail was from a cherry and the cherry
    was cooked on the inside of the mouse and all you could see is the stem aka tail! Cute!
    Have a Happy New Year and great rest of the week too! : )

  6. Hi Gina,

    That book is a beautifully illustrated book every page is bursting with warmth and character and oh the food...yum! : )
    I was looking at that cheese bread recipe yesterday morning while doing this post! (great minds think a like : )The desserts were so delicious....I agree...time to eat well.
    Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year <3

  7. Hi Jeanne,

    I wish I could take credit for the adorable mice but that was my niece!
    The dessert competition was for the younger children and my cake was disqualified by the judges aka family because my daughters did not make it. However, they assured me I would have won on the grounds of taste if that were not the rules! It was funny. The family is fiercly competitive!
    I am wishing you and your family much loy, love and peace for this New Year....thank you xoxo <3

  8. Hi Nancy,

    Ha! that is what I do when I visit blogs and see all the delicious food...get hungary too!. We had a lot of fun. Just having good food and being with family and laughing is all I want on the holidays. It is a gift : )
    Wishing you and yours the happiest New Year <3

  9. Looks like a lot of fun! My mom said our meal together this year was the best gift of all...I think that is often true for families.

  10. It was fun...just to laugh and have good food and be with family.
    It is always the simple things that mean so much.
    These days just having time to stitch is a real treasure!
    Glad you had fun with your family <3
