Russian Tea Cakes {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats} and A $25 King Arthur Flour Giveaway

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

DSC_6636(small)It’s the last day of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats event, and for my final recipe I wanted to share something from my childhood.

Eggnog Pudding

The strangest thing happened the other day…

My day was going along uneventfully until I suddenly found myself ravenous; it was between meal times, so a little snack was in order. I went for one of my favorites, carrots + hummus. Normal enough, right? (more…)
