christmas!

(Pictured: Nich’s Winter Mandarin Drops)

Merry (belated) Christmas to you all!

I was fortunate enough to receive not one – but TWO – digital cameras for Christmas! One was from Nich, and one was from my parents. Apparently all the loved ones in my life are very supportive of this here little food blog, and they wanted to help make this project a success. I feel so spoiled. Granted, I don’t need two cameras so I will be returning one and using the other. I also received many other things to encourage my love of cooking – spices, a dutch oven, a 30 year old balsamic, truffle oil, etc.

Needless to say, I have taken a lot of pictures this week. And over the course of the next week, I will have some photos and recipes for you all.

As a teaser, I will tell you what our Christmas dinner menu consisted of:

Glazed Ham (glazed with my mom’s mango habanero sauce)

Jean Christophe Novelli’s Scalloped Potatoes

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds

Maple Cayenne Carrots (My mom’s creation)

And for dessert I made a Lemon Mascarpone Tart with a Gingersnap crust and my mom made Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce.

The dinner was delightful! In fact, the whole Christmas weekend was delightful. We  spent quality time with the people that we love, we ate good food, and had a great time. I hope that you all had a great Christmas as well, and I look forward to sharing a few recipes with you.
