Eat/Holiday | Eggnog Cupcakes

Eggnog Cupcakes | Squirrelly Minds
I love eggnog, but am a bit of a wimp when I drink it. I take my eggnog at least half and half with milk to dilute all that tongue smacking creaminess. But what is better than diluting your eggnog with milk you ask? Why by diluting it with flour and sugar and all things delicious. Aka, by turning it into eggnog cupcakes!

While she’s off cuddling her newest family addition, I’m over at Lulu The Baker today sharing my eggnog cupcake recipe. The perfect treat for the holidays.

See you there!

Baked Pumpkin Kale Macaroni & Cheese from Some The Wiser

Yes I only got to 3 recipes last month. But man I tell you they were worth it.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Red Onion and Avocado: I’m a bit of an anomaly in that I LOVE brussels sprouts. Yes, I love them so much that the word warrants capitals. But man, when you add them to bacon, red onion and AVOCADO!? It’s a freaking dream of a side dish friends…or main dish if you like to gobble them all down like me.

Kale and Wild Rice Casserole: At first I was miffed at having to cook the onions for a whole 20 minutes. I mean, that’s an entire episode of Full House! But I decided to stick to the recipe and I tell ya, that 20 minutes was well worth it to get those caramelized delights on top of the casserole. I ended up cooking then baking the entire dish (minus the onions) in our cast iron skillet and it turned out perfectly.

Baked Pumpkin Kale Macaroni & Cheese: I don’t make mac and cheese a whole lot. I feel like the lack of nutritious value negates the delicious factor. I know it’s minor on the grand scale, but having kale in this mac and cheese made me feel a teensy bit better about eating it, especially paired with pumpkin. I’d love to try it with real pumpkin sometime too. And those bread bits thrown on top? Nice touch.

Eat | Pear Cocktail and Simple Syrup Recipe

Pear Cocktail and Simple Syrup Recipe on Wayfair | Squirrelly Minds
I’m still holding on to the last bit of autumn, and pears are one of those fruits that instantly makes me think of the coziness that autumn brings. Every year we pick a few buckets full of pears from my parents’ yard and make cider, canned pears, and simple syrup. One of my favourite ways to use the syrup is in a harvest pear latte, but sometimes you just need to kick it up a bit. So today you can find me over at Wayfair sharing my and the mister’s recipe for pear simple syrup and a delicious cocktail to go with it.
