So many delicious looking holiday treats and foods on the various blogs this week!

  • Deb posted the most delicious looking garlic butter roasted mushrooms. I gotta admit that these are my favorite part of going to a good steakhouse … just as she described!
  • These mini Loaves of Cranberry Bread from Food in Jars look aweseome.  I’m planning on spending next weekend making treats for the folks at the office and I think these are going to have to be added to the list.
  • Pennies on a platter posted these Beef and Green Chile Enchiladas that look wonderful.  Ok, so they’re not your typical Christmas or holiday type food … but they look delicious!
  • I love baked eggs but rarely make them.  This Two Cheese Baked Eggs in Tomatoes by Sarah’s Cucina Bella look so yummy … I might have to make these for Christmas morning.
  • posted this recipe for James Peterson’s Brisket with Pomegranite Juice.  I’ve always made brisket with onion soup and beer from an old family recipe (made it last night, in fact) but this looks too good not to try.  I just have to convince the family that it’s ok to try a different brisket!
  • My list wouldn’t be complete without at least one Pioneer Woman recipe:  Spinach Soup with Gruyere.  How good does that look?  And then for dessert Lia’s Butter Toffee.  Yum!
  • For the Love of Cooking posted this recipe for White Bean Soup with Chorizo and Kale.  I’m not a huge fan of chorizo, but the recipe looks so good that I’m going to have to try it.
  • I’ve been making cake balls for years to give away as gifts, so when I saw these Pumpkin Spice Truffles I knew I had to add them to the list.   I think these would be equally good dipped in dark chocolate … but then I happen to think anything is good with dark chocolate!
  • EzraPoundCake posted this recipe for Baked Mushroom Linguini and I’m thinking this would be a great January dinner on a cold night.
  • Kate at Savour Fare posted this recipe for Mince Pies.  I love mince pies and a couple of years ago I made homemade mincemeat filling.  This post has pushed me to do it again this year!
  • Eggplant Marinara Flatbread over at Annie’s Eats – I almost passed this one up but the photo in the post made it look soooo good that I had to add it to my list!
  • The Bon Appetit blog posted this recipe for Moroccan Chicken with Olives and Preserved Lemons.  Since I have a huge jar of preserved lemons in my fridge, I think this is a recipe that I have to make this winter!
  • This Serious Eats Paprika Chicken with Sour Cream Gravy makes me think of Chicken Paprikash.  I might see if I can tweak this recipe to eliminate the canned soup.
  • I bought a bag of pearled barley a few weeks ago with no idea what I was going to do with it.  Fortunately posted this recipe for  Winter Wheatberry Salad with Fig and Red Onion.  This looks like it’ll be a great option for some healthy lunches in January!
  • Last but not least … ok, it’s not a food item, but isn’t this little tree decorated with sterling silver spoons over at The Inspired Room the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?  I have a bunch of old sterling that I’ve bought at garage sales and flea markets and I think that a little tree like this for my dining room would be just perfect.

I told you there were a lot of links!  I think January will be full of a lot of really good food!
