If you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably know that I’m not the biggest meat eater; in general I really don’t make roasts (except roast chicken, which is a specialty of mine). For the most part I gravitate towards fish or veggie-based meals, so I don’t blame my hubby at all for

Christmas Brunch

‘Tis the month of December…a month of celebrations, and we all know that so many holiday festivities revolve around food.  While recipes for holiday cookies, appetizers, and drinks abound, I haven’t seen many full holiday brunch menus.  I know that many people (my family included) eat brunch on holiday mornings and because of this, I
