Foodie Lover: My Top Five Recipes for the Holidays!

Hello All! Back again with a delicious new post! Finals are over and I'm finally free from the papers, exams, pop quizzes and studying. Yay! Now, I have all the time to relax, visit museums and of course try new recipes. Anyone who knows me know I'm a newbie foodie (foodie = ultimate food lover). Not only will I try all the amazing restaurants Philly has to offer, I'm also excited to try some new recipes for the holidays as well. So, I decided to share the top five new recipes I will be making (and eating) during this holiday break!

 You can never go wrong with a classic grilled cheese sandwich, so when I saw this oozy goodness of the Crispy Bacon & Brie grilled cheese sandwich I fell in love. I never tried this recipe before but it looks to die for! This would go amazing with a side of hot soup. Find this recipe via Simply Delicious.

Speaking of soup, I am a soup lover! I love trying new soups and stews and seeing all the great recipes people come up with. One of the most interesting ones I saw was this Jalapeno Popper Chicken soup via Creme De La Crumb. This definitely sounds like a soup I can dig into.

One recipe I'm dying to try again is the uber goodness of the Creamy Chicken Lasagna! When I first made this recipe I was a little nervous about it. But after that first taste, I couldn't get enough of it! This is definitely a must try recipe! Creamy Chicken Lasagna recipe can be found via Sugar n Spice Gals.

You can never go through the winter season without eating a bowl of delicious stew. With a side of warm & buttery biscuits, you'll be in Heaven for sure!  I found a really great recipe online at Mrs. Happy Homemaker. Definitely a holiday season favorite!

Last but definitely not least, the perfect recipe for the ultimate breakfast! Eggnog Pancakes are not only amazing but there great for the holiday season. I made them for my family for Christmas breakfast and they all love them. Excited to make them again. Recipe can be found via Creme De La Crumb.

Whether you're making a feast for your family during the holidays or trying something new during the break, these five recipes are a great start to become the ultimate food lover during the winter break. I know I definitely will  be making these for potlucks & dinners in the future. Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite.

The Baking Series: Mini Cranberry Cheesecakes

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend. Thanksgiving was great for me. Why wouldn't it be. Great food, family time and did I mention great food. Yum! Of course, I had to bring something to the festive meal. So, I went to Pinterest and got this awesome recipe on Mini Cranberry Cheesecakes!

The recipe for this yummy treat can be found on My Baking Addiction with all the ingredients and instructions. Making this dessert wasn't expensive at all. The most you will pay for is the vanilla bean which is usually up there in price. Also, it doesn't take long to make. It only took me about 30 minutes to make which is pretty fast. Plus, this is a great treat to make for family and friends during the holidays. Tis the season for baking! Be sure to check out my mini cheesecakes below.
