We leave you on the last of our 12 days of Christmas with a decadent and super-easy holiday treat.
santa hat brownies
We should be ashamed that all the ingredients are completely store bought, but we aren’t. We saw these adorable things on Pinterest, and HAD to make them. Kids or very easily entertained adults (such as us) will find these things as cute as they are delicious and easy to make. Seriously, these things are super easy, as…
eleven pipers piping: high-kick hot chocolate
While we are HUGE fans of the prepackaged hot cocoa with those weird NASA freeze-dried marshmallows, we are running a food blog here, not a sad bed and breakfast.
ten lords-a-leaping: breakfast casserole
It’s that magical time of year again, where there’s a chill in the air, a tree in the den, and a perpetually-dwindling bottle of scotch on the counter to match the disappearing anti-depressants in the medicine cabinet. (Thank the baby Jesus for THAT cocktail.)
nine ladies dancing: pink lady martinis
We are deep in the throws of holiday chaos here at queer in the kitchen. Like many people this time of year, the demands we place on ourselves, our family and our livers are at an annual high.
eight maids-a-milking: brandy ice cream
Yes, you read that right. Brandy. F*@#ing. Ice cream.
seven swans-a-swimming: kathryn’s chicken tortilla soup
This recipe came from our good friend/runner/fashionista/purveyor of all things “fabulous”, Kathryn.
six geese-a-laying: curried deviled eggs with smoked salmon
Don’t go all high school girl on us and roll your eyes at yet another take on deviled eggs. No seriously, DON’T!
five golden rings: pineapple upside-down cake
Other than being delicious, this particular cake (that we adapted from Balthazar in New York) and like most great recipes, comes with a comical memory.
