Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful week engaging in whatever traditional and/or awkward holiday traditions your family does. I personally loved my excess of Hindi movies and chai, of which three cups a day is the standard, if not a little on the low side.
Over the summer, I reunited with Erika, the lovely lady behind The Pancake Princess, for a blogger brunch. Part 2 happened this past week with a holiday dinner created by your two favorite dessert enthusiasts! It was great fun to have our families get together, and I’m sure our moms were thrilled not to cook for once. Of course, we had just as much desserts as real food, but hey, it’s the holidays, so why not? Our menu:
Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Crackers and Rosemary Flatbread
Arugula Salad with Pistachios, Cranberries, and Creme Fraiche Dressing
Homemade Pizzas – Margherita, Spinach & Egg, and Basil & Olive
Vegan (!) Lasagna with Tofu and Beets
Apple Crostata in a Pan
Cookies n’ Cream Peppermint Bark
Check out the photos of our spread below. Lots of cookings means lots of eatings means lots of recipes that I’ll be posting next week to round out the year. I’m off to sunny Socal this weekend, so if there’s any place I should eat at, holla at yo gurl!
What was on your holiday table?
