Heather Long’s #Holiday #Giveaway: Virginia Nelson’s Souper Soup #Foodie #ComfortFood

Hiya, I’m Virginia Nelson, the rainbow haired author, but you can call me Virg. This was a wonderful year for me (YAY for hitting USA Today’s bestseller list!!!) and I was so glad when Heather said she was doing this. I really wanted the chance to give a little something back. But first… my recipe! Everyone is going to be making their holiday meals soon. I don’t know about your family, but I know we’ll be making more cookies than the Keebler Elves at Ma’s house and otherwise being too busy to make a good, home cooked meal in the […]

Heather Long’s #Holiday #Giveaway: Michelle Fox’s Molasses Crackle Top Cookies #Foodie

Hello! Happy Holidays! I’m going to share a very special recipe with you. My grandmother was known for her baking prowess and these cookies are inspired by hers. They are crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside with a rich holiday flavor that makes you think, if you just ate enough of them, you might actually turn into Santa. My family loves these cookies to the point where I have to hide them or a few little piggies will eat them all! To me, they taste just like Christmas. Enjoy! Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 2 […]

Heather Long #Holiday #Giveaway #Hanukkah, Shifters, and Latkes, Oh My! @deenaremiel #foodie #recipe

Happy Holidays, one and all! Today is the first night of Hanukkah, or Chanukah, or Channukah, or Hanukah. Yes, there are a number of ways to spell the holiday’s name, but for me, only one way to celebrate… with family, friends, and lots of fabulous foods! So, Hanukkah is all about a military victory of the Maccabees over the Syrian-Greeks in 165 BCE. There’s a little thing, a miracle actually, that was said to have occurred when they rededicated the temple- oil that only should’ve lasted one day lasted eight. That’s the reason for eight crazy nights of the holiday. […]

Heather Long #Holiday #Giveaway: Don’t Stop Believing with @LouisaBacio #Foodie #Santa

Key the Glee theme song. Yes, I know it’s a classic Journey song, but my 8-year-old prefers to belt out the remade version. Eight. It’s one of those magical years where right now, she still believes … you know in all the magic of the season. “My friend at school says that there is no Santa Claus,” she said recently. “The parents buy all the gifts, hide them under the bed and give them at Christmas.” My heart stopped. In our household, Santa brings one special unwrapped gift. All the others do come from Mom and Dad, and I reminded […]
