Happy Holidays!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve settled in for a long winter’s nap, or rather, a long festive cooking and baking spree with family and friends.

Tonight, I’ve been making whipped shortbread and sucre à la crème, with butter tarts and more tomorrow. There may even be an eggnog meringue pie, if we don’t finish the bottle first.

If you’re still cooking, Cinnamon-Cardamom Rice Pudding with Honeyed Rosewater Sauce would be a nice finish to a Christmas Eve menu. Patate Alpino and Vegan Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms make great appetizers on the big day and Kevin’s Vegan Hash will keep everyone happy during Boxing Day brunch.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a peaceful and joyful weekend to all.
