Golden Apple Cider-Ginger Mocktail



Oh. Em. Gee. Have you guys heard? The holidays are coming!! Are you all ready? I most certainly am not.

It's been non-stop for me at work and on the home front these last two weeks and I think it goes without saying (but I'm saying it anyway) that I'm exhausted each night by the time I get my kiddos in bed around 9 p.m. Each and every night, I'm so bummed at just how pooped I am once they're all tucked in because I would love to have a couple hours of me time. Truthfully, I just can't hang anymore and I don't last much longer than they do when it comes to dozing off lately. I'm happy to report, however, that after this week it slows way down for me at my day job. Heaven knows, I'm super thankful for that!

Sweet Potato, Zucchini & Bacon Pancakes with (or without) Gorgonzola Cheese



Pretty soon you all will notice that I'm going through a couple of phases in my food preferences in some upcoming posts. First of all, I'm borderline obsessed with gorgonzola cheese at the moment. Seriously, I've been putting that stuff in everything. It's even good with roasted fruit for dessert...especially with warm pears, toasted pecans and a drizzle of honey (o. em. geee. It's soooo good!). I truly love gorgonzola cheese, but my husband doesn't... so there's. the. rub.

Wow, just a tiny little nod to Hamlet makes anything feel so serious all of sudden, right? Oh, man. Well, these sweet potato, zucchini and bacon pancakes aren't serious... unless seriously tasty counts. Anyhoo...

White Chocolate Tartlets #Choctoberfest




 I'm not sure what it is about these last few days and participating in #Choctoberfest, but I've pretty much had "party food" on the brain! That being said, these little white chocolate tartlets are another recipe I love to whip up during the holidays.

Chocolate Orange Truffles #Choctoberfest



I don't know about you guys, but when I get a craving for chocolate I mostly think about getting my hands on some rich, luxurious chocolate candy to satisfy it. Store-bought candy bars are wonderful for a quick chocolate fix, but when I have the time, I enjoy making my own fancy-looking chocolate truffles!

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Quick Bread #Choctoberfest




When I heard that the Imperial Sugar Company and some other amazing sponsors were celebrating a week of all-things-chocolate and recruiting bloggers to share recipes for an event called #Choctoberfest, I immediately knew I wanted to participate! And after I made one little loaf of this double chocolate buttermilk quick bread, I knew it would be the first recipe I shared this week.

Welcome to #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar!
