Irish Cream Truffles

irish cream trufflesDo I really need to write a post for this one, folks?  It’s chocolate.  And booze.  Melted, mixed, rolled around in more chocolate.  Highly giftable, delicious, boozy chocolate.  Listen, we all have lots of stuff to do this time of year.  I, for one, still have to wrap gifts (all the gifts), do a bit more shopping, and think up a Christmas Eve menu.  You too, right?  So let’s just cut to the chase, and agree that these Irish Cream Truffles are just a good idea.  Ok, a really good idea.  If you need more convincing on why truffles are good to have around, just in general, check out this recipe.   Also, have your head checked, because it’s pretty obvious that truffles are good to have around.  Silly.   [Read more...]

Pork tenderloin marinadeOk, so I know it’s December and all, and everything is all about mulled wine and Christmas cookies and over-the-top pot-luck casseroles.  But the thing is, let’s be reasonable.  We all still have to eat dinner.  And if you’re like me, you  might want something a little lighter than a lot of things that are rolling across the food-blogging world right now.  Don’t get me wrong, I can scarf cookies, cakes, and heavy-cream laden desserts with the best of them.  But even I need a light dinner every once in a while.

Raw Spice Bar Giveaway


I don’t do giveaways too often (ok, NEVER), but when RawSpiceBar contacted me about their product, I thought it was so cool that I wanted to share it with you!  So we’re teaming up to give two winners a month’s delivery of RawSpiceBar. Here’s a little bit about the company:

RawSpiceBar delivers 3 premium spice blends from around the world direct to your door. They work with top chefs to create a unique and interesting spice blend for you to try out. Each spice box averages ~2 ounces of spice blends and yields a complete 3 dish meal for 8-12 people.  All the spices use ingredients of the highest quality (and they opt for fair trade and organic spices where possible), sourced from global spice producers. RawSpiceBar includes an “origins, instructions and recipes” card for each spice blend that includes the blend’s history, cooking as well as suggested recipes.  RawSpiceBar also includes another 5-10 recipe ideas on their site, and they are sure to provide a great variety of options for vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, gluten free and healthy eaters alike. 
Ok, so seriously, isn’t this a great idea?  For $6 a month, you get not only yummy, fresh spices, but inspiration and recipes, too!  I love anything that gets people to try new things in the kitchen, and I think this is an awesome way to get out of that dinner rut I’ve found myself in lately.  And I’m thinking this would make an awesome Christmas gift for a few people in my life who love to cook as much as I do.  Ok, so without further ado, go and enter!  There are lots of ways to enter!
