Your mother may have told you not to play with your food, but she probably never saw this snowy, gingerbread landscape. Inspired by Nigella Lawson’s serving suggestions for her Guinness Gingerbread, these peaks and valleys of cinnamon, ginger, and brown sugar goodness are a perfect winter wonderland when dotted with fresh rosemary pine trees, sprinkled with powdered sugar snow, and bedecked with tiny winter wanderers (we got ours from World Market, but the sky’s the limit–try plastic animal figurines, tiny Santas, miniature sleighs, etc.). Children and adults alike will enjoy helping to make and eat this festive, holiday treat. And of course, you should feel free to use whatever gingerbread recipe you like! Happy baking.
Adapted slightly from one of our favorite food blogs, Shutterbean.com, this recipe for sausage, jalapeno hushpuppies comes together quickly, feeds a crowd, and is a great way to get all of the flavor of cornbread-‘n’-sausage stuffing into a bite-sized appetizer with a kick of spice and a dose of herbal freshness to boot. These puppies pack plenty of fresh cilantro and green onion flavor in addition to minced jalapeno and ground chorizo sausage.
Give your holiday leftovers a southwestern twist. These turkey tacos feature the rich flavors of red chile, cumin, cranberries, and fresh bay. Topped with a fresh cranberry, green onion, and cilantro pico de gallo, they are a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, and a whole lot of post-holiday fun.
This pumpkin sundae makes the most of fresh sage combining it with a deep, amber salted caramel sauce for a festive finale to any holiday meal. Whipped cream sweetened with brown sugar and a sprinkling of salted pepitas, or pumpkin seeds, adds a finishing touch that takes store-bought pumpkin ice cream to the next level.
