What’s for Dinner?

Making Christmas treats, a What’s for Dinner? special event. Including pretzels with a white chocolate peppermint put on top, melted in the oven for a few minutes and another square squeezed on top.

Soft Vegan Ginger Cookies

( Desserts andRecipes )

Spice and everything nice. Rolled raw in brown sugar. Vegan Ginger Cookies uses finely grated fresh ginger and dried. I added 1/4 tsp allspice besides. This is a definite repeater.

Chocolate Pie

Putting the Luck in Potluck

Crackers that taste rather like breadsticks. The soft cheese was Brillant Savarin, a soft ripened triple cream from France. The firm one was Piave Vecchio, […]
