C is for: Candy Cane Jelly Shots

Ho ho ho.

I'm like the Santa Claus of jelly shots.

Except, you know, without the beard and big belly. But I do have a bowl full of jelly... shots.

These ones are fun and festive for Christmas because they look and taste like candy canes. I used my little trick where I tilt the shot glasses on a slant, and I used peppermint schnapps with red food coloring to achieve the candy cane flavor.

(Truth be told, I don't love candy canes. Or peppermint. But I do love jelly shots).

Head on over to Tablespoon to snag the recipe. Merry Christmas everyone!

C is for: Cranberry Salsa

I randomly ended up with Thanksgiving Day off this year, and since I just can't help myself, I decided to take the opportunity to go visit my friends Kim, John and their baby Nora at their new home in Washington D.C.

I randomly met this couple on a plane ride to Mexico, and as they say, the rest is history. I was a bridesmaid in their St. Louis wedding, and I even threw Kim a bacon-themed bridal shower while we were both still living in San Francisco.

Kim loves cooking and entertaining just as much as I do, and on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, she invited some of their friends over for food, drinks and games. Aside from the homemade pizza and cheese/charcuterie board (which I overindulged to the point of making myself sick), she made her go-to party snack: cranberry salsa. It's so simple but so yummy and perfect for holiday gatherings, so I figured I would share it on the blog.
