Breakfast Braided Strawberry Bread

I have recently (re)discovered the pleasure of wearing a robe around the house. I have this one, in case you’re curious, and it feels like luxury! I have no idea what I’ve been doing wearing PJs when I could’ve been wearing an incredibly soft robe. This recipe for Danish Braided Strawberry Bread is the perfect fluffy loaf to be made in a robe.

I think a lot about Christmas breakfast and how epic I always want it to be. I always love a braided situation. I usually use store-bought puff pastry but I love this bread-y version because oh so delicious.

THREE YEARS! That’s insane. Time goes by so quickly. I have to say, I’m so proud of that little book. It’s a little book that could. This recipe for Chewy Chai Masala Snickerdoodles are hands-down been the most-made recipe out of the entire book.

These snickerdoodles are delicious. They’re chewy, perfectly spiced with a combination of black pepper, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. I love giving these away because they have a bit of staying power. They taste delicious even if they’re not straight from the oven.

Snickerdoodles Should Be Chewy!

The chewiness is heavenly. I attribute the cream cheese to their good texture. It’s truly magical in these.

I want all snickerdoodles to be chewy cookies! Dreamy texture.

Today is as good as any day to get the party started! I’m starting easy, grooving into the holiday season with breakfast. For this post, I teamed up with JUST and their new product JUST Egg. I used it over the summer, remember? It’s a product that truly blows my mind because it’s made from mung beans and yet it tastes just like eggs (texture and flavor). It’s wild!

How to Build a Fall/Winter Cheese Board

Today I am doing the very difficult and labor-intensive work to tell you How to Build a Fall/Winter Cheese Board!

I’m not trying to brag but I have been invited to two holiday parties already and we haven’t the true Holiday season. This is going to be a very fun time for me! I’m excited. My neighborhood is very into the holiday spirit; each and every single house on the block already has lights up. In order to fit in with the Jones’, we spent the weekend trying to get our lives together, i.e., getting rid of the squirrel-eaten pumpkins.

Let’s dive in:

How to Build a Fall/Winter Cheese Plate!

Pick your cheeses: Harvarti, Gouda, Alpine (gruyére) – I cubed up Havarti and Gouda for easy consumption. I am all for keeping cheese in their wedge-form but it’s also great to cube up easy-to-eat cheese like these. This way people can use a toothpick and keep it moving.
