Busy, Busy Busy…But I love it. My little family, Holly and Richard, are home. They arrived yesterday with their fur babies from New Orleans. We will gather together with other family members on Wednesday and Thursday. These are the holidays I love.
Holly told me it already felt like Christmas with all the food and good treats. She had to wrap some Christmas presents early, so that also added to the Christmas spirit and the tone of this holiday season.
I have been busy in the kitchen, cooking some really great recipes. I love to cook now that I stay at home and no longer work.
Here is one recipe that I want to share with you after having some requests for it…
If you noticed my recipe card in the photos does have some changes to the frosting recipe…yes I sometimes change them around. I used a basic chocolate cream cheese frosting, because I love it. It was harder to frost the hot marshmallows, no doubt, because this frosting does NOT drizzle! It was like trying to nail jello to a tree… But if you let the marshmallows cool off you can spread this icing on with no problem. It’s all about what you like, huh? Here’s the recipe for the basic Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting if you would like to try it:
Cream together a soften 8 oz. cream cheese with ½ stick of softened butter. Add 3 cups of sifted powdered sugar, one cup at the time, mixing until smooth. Mix in ½ cup cocoa. Love it!
I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday week…I know I am. I’m grateful on this 23rd day of my 30 days of gratitude for being able to spend this time together with my loved ones; cooking, laughing, hunting (the guys), eating good food, playing, shopping, and of course having a nap or two! I love the busyness in my life.
Many blessings to you…
