Eggnog French Toast

Happy Christmas Eve! Here’s a great breakfast recipe to prepare for breakfast tomorrow morning – eggnog french toast. Substituting eggnog for milk makes this fresh toast festive and perfect for Christmas morning (or any winter morning).

Eggnog Dip with New York Style Sweet Swirls Snack Crisps

When it comes to potlucks, it is always expected that I will bring a dessert (a safe assumption as I usually do). However, I mentioned wanting to bring something else to The Pharmacy potluck but was scoffed as if to not bring a dessert was unacceptable. I am not discounting the praise I receive when people say that they love my desserts, but give my non-baked goods a chance!

In order to win the masses over, I decided to team up with the new Sweet Swirls from New York Style for a dip to bring to the aforementioned potluck – yes a dessert dip, I compromised. New York Style Sweet Swirls is a new baked snack crisp product that comes in Cinnabon and Chocolate, and transforms any snack into something extra special. I knew they would be a perfect match with this eggnog dip.

Although I could have easily devoured them by themselves, the flavor of the Sweet Swirls was not dramatic. Instead they added just right amount of flavor to compliment the eggnog dip rather than overpower. My favorite for this particular dip was the Cinnabon and appeared as though most people agreed with me as that bowl dwindled faster than the chocolate. I thought for sure the chocolate would go first!

What would you serve with New York Style Sweet Swirls? Another idea I had for the Chocolate Sweet Swirls was to make little fruit pizzas, using them as the “crust” instead of a brownie. I’ll have to buy more in order to try it out!

I also made an appetizer using the Garlic Parmesan Panetini. I will share that recipe at a later date.

Eggnog Snickerdoodle Blondies

It is post PhD graduation week, and a short week at that with only 3 days left before I no longer have a “work” to go to. I’ll be whisked away for the holidays and return for just one last month in Memphis before packing up and moving in with family. Hopefully with the new year will come responses to all the jobs I have applied to but have yet to hear from. I am really excited/anxious to see where I end up next!

But on to these bars. After I became addicted to the snickerdoodle blondies that Alex sent me last month, I decided to make my own with eggnog in order to continue my eggnog streak. These bars turned out to be just as magical as the traditional version with some added holiday spirit, making them a great treat to make for your upcoming holiday parties (or a way to use up any leftover eggnog).

Dark Chocolate Chunk Eggnog Cookies

It’s the 3rd Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen! This event brings together food bloggers from around the world in celebration of all things cookie. This year, once again, this swap was partnered with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and a donation was collected from every participant. Additionally, the three generous brand partners, OXO, Gold Medal Flour, and Dixie Crystals, EACH matched our donations and as a result ended up raising $13,778.40 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!

FBCookie Swap

I sent my matches Meagan (A Zesty Bite), Christina (Stracciatella), and Susan (A Less Processed Life) a dozen each of these dark chocolate chunk eggnog cookies. After I made the eggnog cheesecake bars, I started putting eggnog in everything including the pancakes I shared on Monday. It adds such a great flavor to winter treats and was no exception in these cookies – soft and chewy eggnog cookies with chunks of dark chocolate.

From my matches I received pecan sandies (Nora of Cats and Commas), lemon glazed cookies (Sheryl of Mama’s Gotta Bake), and compost cookies (Shari of My Judy the Foodie). I stashed away most of them for myself but did bring some into lab to share with my coworkers. Thank you for all the wonderful cookies!

Eggnog Cheesecake Bars with Cranberry Swirl

Before Thanksgiving, hearing Christmas music turned me into a Grinch. Even seeing a billboard for a radio station playing 24/7 Christmas music annoyed me. But guess what radio station I tuned into yesterday while on my usual daily commute? I caved, but don’t really enjoy the newer Christmas songs. I tend to prefer the classics or covers of the classics. What is your favorite kind of Christmas music?

However since Thanksgiving recently past, here’s another recipe that will help you use up any leftover cranberry sauce while transitioning into the wintry holidays with the flavor of eggnog – eggnog cheesecake with a cranberry swirl! Awfully pretty arn’t they? I was a little sad that the swirls cracked away from the cheesecake a little, so next time I would mix the cranberry puree with a little bit of the cheesecake filling first. This would result in a paler color but hopefully keep the swirls intact with the rest.

Overnight, Slow Cooker Eggnog Cranberry Steel-Cut Oatmeal

I know I left you hanging on Friday by saying I specifically whipped up homemade eggnog to use in a recipe, so today I am telling you why I went through all that trouble. I used it in slow cook oatmeal! Why? Because there’s nothing better than breakfast ready and waiting for you in the morning. And when you live by yourself that notion is pretty much impossible (without a slow cooker).

The eggnog added the perfect amount of sweetness to the oatmeal, which is why you don’t see any sugar in the ingredient list. So yes, homemade eggnog was worth the extra time in order to make this oatmeal. Eggnog may actually become a year round thing so I can continue to have a supply of this oatmeal. All to myself.

Also, I would like to point out that you can cook this oatmeal two different ways in your slow cooker. The first method cooks on low continuously, and leaves you with crispy edges along the walls of the slow cooker. But if you would prefer not to have those edges, cook it on high for a short time and then it stays in the slow cooker while it cools overnight. It’s as if you blast it with heat and then let it gradually go down to low and then off, which means you will have to heat up the finished oatmeal in the morning. The latter method is the one I used. As you can see in my picture, I still had a little bit of the crispy edge phenomenon but I thought it added great texture.
