Dust storm's a-comin'!

...or so says NOAA.  In north Texas, it's 73 degrees and sunny, but windy, so the windows are all open, and fresh air is blowing in my quaint apartment.  Guess this means I'll have to put off cleaning, boo hoo.

My absolute favorite fruit is now on sale at Central Market.  I love Blood Oranges!  Been looking for recipes that use them, I'll post some in the next day or two. 

Kind of tangy, definitely orange, but with a rasberry note.  I love it in sorbet, juiced, or just sliced and chomped.  Don't wear light-colored clothing around these yummy bits of deliciousness, they stain something awful!

Another year past, and a new one ahead!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year's celebration.  I was in bed, asleep, by 11 p.m.  And I'm ok with that!

Any resolutions?  For me, it's the usual eat-better-lose-weight-save-money deal.  I'm starting school in a few weeks to finish my degree, and I'm sure excited about that!

So, do I have to post only my own food stuff, or can I share?  All credit will be given appropriately... there are just some things out there that MUST be shared!  Like... cinnamon swirl pancakes for one, and cranberry fudge, and... well, just look for yourself.  (So much for the weight loss resolution!)

Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes, from (see, there's the credit) and the recipe is here:

And Cranberry Fudge - from Taste of Home, I love their recipes - nothing too fancy, and just about always good!

Personally, since the cranberries and nuts aren't stirred in until the very end, I would substitute white chocolate chips for the walnuts, or maybe some of the other "Craisin" products.  I think they have blueberries.  That would be incredible!

Time to put on one last Christmas CD, and take down the tree.  I'd like my living room back again, thanks!  Although this tree was indeed a good one, and I'm thankful for it.
