This Weeks Eats 12.6.15 (And Some Holiday Recipes)

Our menu this week is not all that exciting, as I'll be doing lots of eating out and easy meals while my Mother-In-Law pays her annual visit!  So, I thought I'd share some favorite things I'll be making, or that I WANT to make.

After our successful trip to see Santa yesterday,  I put together a batch of Cranberry Bliss holiday bark for gifts (working on my to-do list) while sipping on a new whiskey recipe and DAMN.  You've got to try a Bourbon Bomber, STAT.  Apple cider is not usually my jam, so I was skeptical.  I went all out with the fresh grated ginger, etc. and it was so tasty I had two more after dinner.  Kinda feeling it today, but they were worth it.  Next recipe I'll test for holiday cocktail-ing: Cranberry Ginger Whiskey Smash.  YES.

As I mentioned above, I'm baking up bark (some with white chocolate/orange/cranberry/walnut and some with dark chocolate/sea salt/cranberry/walnut) and our favorite cranberry bread.  Next week, I'm going to get the Linzer Muffins going and maybe try this Oatmeal Coffee Cake for something with a little nutritional value for breakfasts.

I'm debating whether to go for Cinnamon Rolls for Christmas morning, since I had a bad couple of years working with yeast.  However, I was successful in making homemade crescent rolls for Thanksgiving this year and feel like I have my mojo back... Either way, I think I'll make this easy (and DELICIOUS) Overnight Monkey Bread to have on hand just in case.
