Kale With Zucchini

Tuesday, December 27, 2011
This is a staple way we cook leafy greens in our house. Our kids love it and the hubby too. Speaking of hubby he is actually the one who concocted this mix over the summer when we had an abundance of zucchini from the garden. We are trying to eat healthier now the holidays are over and get back in to shape. I have been playing dance party 3 with the kids all week on the wii and let me tell you I feel the effects! Hopefully my post's will be back in the swing of things shortly, it seemed the holidays creeped up on us this year and left our house hold super busy. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I am so thankful for everyone who stops by and reads my blog! You all are so wonderful!

Turtle Squares

Wednesday, December 7, 2011
This recipe was adapted  from The Black Peppercorn. These were absolutely delish and a new found favorite! I love his pictures so make sure to stop by and check out his blog there are tons of yummy looking recipes to browse through!
 I had decided to make these as a treat for the night we had decorated our Christmas tree. I have always loved turtle candies and was excited when I had seen his post on turtle squares. I can't wait to make these again to pass out to the neighbors on the cookie trays!
Thanks again to Black Peppercorn!


Cinnamon Rock Candy

Nothing says Merry Christmas like delicious Cinnamon Rock Candy! 

I learned to make Cinnamon Rock Candy after my husband and I became married. He has wonderful childhood memories of his Grandmother who would make this for him during the holidays as he grew up. She is such a wonderful woman and will be turning 100 in January! Simply amazing to me. 

So now I carry on her tradition for my husband and our own children of having the cinnamon rock candy! 

Make sure to use Cinnamon Oil. Cinnamon flavor will not be strong enough. Cinnamon oil can usually be found at craft stores or specialty stores with the candy making supplies.
