Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 12/20/16

Posted on December 20, 2016

I’m still here! I had no idea I’d take such a hiatus from blogging, but moving into a house under construction was all-consuming. We are just now finishing up the last touches (or are we???) and even my kitchen is still being finished. It’s been operational since right after Thanksgiving, but it’s almost, almost done now!

Right now, I’m feeling in a bit of a personal rut. It seems the work on the house, toddler mom life and some other personal challenges have (hopefully temporarily) shut down my creativity. So rather than dive back into recipe creating and forced posts, I’m going to post when I’m really inspired. When I share a recipe, you will know that I love it and am excited about it!

In the mean time, I’ve been keeping busy in the kitchen with some friends’ recipes and some of my own. Here are some recipes that I’ve made and enjoyed:

Mini Chocolate Cupcakes from Dessert for Two (L had been requesting cupcakes and this was the perfect quick recipe!)

Soft Almond Flour Sugar Cookies from Ambitious Kitchen (they had amazing texture, especially for a gluten-free cookie)

Big Cranberry Crumb Cake from Keep It Sweet Desserts (I wanted to have something special in the freezer for holiday entertaining)

Chocolate and Pistachio Cookies from Keep It Sweet Desserts (always a hit!)

(Fresh) Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Brown Butter Cookies from Keep It Sweet Desserts (a great gift)

On a much more positive note regarding our move, we’ve been having a great time meeting people and making friends in a new town. L’s school has been a great place for me to meet other moms and I’ve already found a circle of other women that I look forward to seeing regularly. It’s been really nice and L is very happy with pre-school (he adores his teachers).

Very excited to play in the snow!

I hope you have some fun and fulfilling holiday plans. I’m looking forward to visiting with family and friends and settling into our home.
