Hi everyone! It’s been a minute (or a couple months) since I last posted. With a busy work schedule and back-to-back weekends of weddings, bridal showers, bachelorettes – you name it – I haven’t found much time to get in the kitchen! We finally had a weekend at home with absolutely no plans, so we decided to make these incredibly delicious cheeseburger tater tot cups. I found these gems on Pinterest and made a few tweaks to the recipe and boy, were they a hit. These tots are the perfect appetizer for football Saturday and/or Sunday!
I know I’m late, but happy 4th of July! It’s been a busy work week, but I was still able to spend a good amount of time with my family and relatives in town from Ohio–primarily because my boss was generous enough to give us the day off yesterday.
While home, we ate some unbelievably delicious food (my uncle is an incredible cook, or rather, chef), drank copious amounts of wine and laid in the sun for far too long.
Back to work today, but at least it’s Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend.
As I mentioned in my last post, I went to my boss’ Christmas party this past Saturday. We spent the night eating copious amounts of food from brisket to turkey to stuffed eggplant to roasted vegetables (the list goes on), drinking wine, decorating the Christmas tree and enjoying the snow-covered front lawn.
Oh, you didn’t know it snows in LA? Only kidding, of course. My boss had someone come and blow real snow on her lawn. Close enough. :)
I offered to bring dessert, so I made my go-to lemon bars and these festive white chocolate, cranberry and macadamia nut cookies. Both were a hit, as were the rest of the desserts–lime cheesecake, apple, raisin and walnut cake, brownies, etc.
I’m still finding it hard to believe that Christmas is literally right around the corner. But that means only three and a half more work days until I get to go home to see my family!
