Peanut Butter Cookie for one with Reese's baking cups and Reese's Pieces

It's December! I have already had my first holiday party and have another one tomorrow. I'm excited for Christmas, even if it seems like it was just Christmas.

My parents have already given me my Christmas present, although I expect I will still have something to open on Christmas morning.  I was given an electric keyboard.  They mailed it directly to me.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Chocolate Chips

It's the Christmas season! What better way to welcome in the Holidays with pumpkin pancakes?  

I feel like pumpkin pancakes are appropriate for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The pumpkin makes perfect for Thanksgiving, and the cinnamon, ginger, and allspice make them a good fit for Christmas as well.

Chocolate Cookies with Reece's Baking Cups and Reece's Pieces Candy

The holidays are fast approaching.  Are you ready?  

I spend last Thanksgiving in Spain.  It is a pretty epic way to spend the holiday.  This year is going to be much more low key.  I am going to go hang out at a friends' house.  We are not even making thanksgiving foods.

Ghormeh Sabzi

I have made Ghormeh Sabzi before with chicken.  For some reason, I don't remember it tasting as good as this time.  

I remember it being almost too herby.  This was a great recipe.  It was flavorful and delicious.  I made it a few weeks ago and still remember its wonderful taste.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and Reese's Baking Cups and Reese's Pieces Candy

It has been awhile since I posted.  I had some family in town for a bit and then I went to Universal Studios to see the Harry Potter themed sections.

It was wonderful to see family.  We explored the city a little bit and saw a play.  The time went by too quickly.  Universal Studios was lots of fun.  I spend so much money on Harry Potter merchandise.  I think I spend about $50 dollars on candy alone.  Given that all the prices are inflated at a theme park, I didn't actually buy that much candy.  Each chocolate frog was ten bucks.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

I don't make enough egg dishes.  Eggs are so versatile.  They are tasty and healthy too.  They are also pretty cheap for a protein.  

I made this dish a couple of weeks ago for a brunch.  I used my pie pan, which I seldom use.  I think that needs to change as well.  Especially since my parents gave me a pie cookbook for my birthday several months ago, and I still haven't used it.

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef

I made these barbecue beef a couple of weeks ago.  It is a whole 30 recipe.  It is the first whole 30 recipe I have ever made.  I'm not entirely sure what that name even means.

I believe whole 30 does not have any carbs or sugar but that could be another diet.  Maybe it is just an older diet with a new name.
