I cooked and baked up a storm in 2013. It's fun to look back at all the things I made.
I came to enjoy cooking in my 20's, after taking a few cooking classes in Los Angeles. But it was really after the launch of Catch My Party, that my love of cooking and baking exploded. In the beginning, I was too scared to share my recipes on our blog. But as I kept at it and as my skills improved, I started slowly sharing what I was doing. The response was so positive, it made me want to do more! Thank you, Catch My Party Community, for being my biggest cheerleaders.
I can't think of a better time than the holidays to do a food and wine pairing. I was sent two wines from the Robert Mondavi Private Selection -- their Sauvignon Blanc and their Pinot Noir -- and asked to come up with a recipe that would go well with one of them.
I enjoyed both wines. The Sauvignon Blanc has a bright and fresh feel with strong citrus notes. The Pinot Noir has a rich berry flavor, smooth tannins, and a full and round finish.
I was asked by Sauza to come up with ideas for hosting a Ladies' Night Holiday Party, incorporating Sauza Sparkling Margarita into the celebration. (Don't twist my arm!)
While the Sauza Sparkling Margarita comes in three flavors (Original Lime, Wild Berry, and Mango Peach) I wanted to use the Original Lime as my inspiration since I like my margaritas on the straight up traditional side, so my dessert of choice... Mexican cake cookies with lime zest!

What fun I had today baking these white chocolate maple walnut blondies. I wanted to bake something I could give to our neighbors as a little "thank you" gift and these were the perfect treat!
Since I was a kid, I've loved blondies. I will choose them over brownies any day. Usually I make them basic with chocolate chips and walnuts, but today I wanted to switch it up a little. I added some maple syrup and swapped in white chocolate chips.
Cookies exchange parties are such a fun way to celebrate the holidays! Here are some delicious cookies recipes to try. Also, to get an even bigger assortment, asks your guests to bring their favorite cookies, then supply bags or boxes so that your guest can take some home at the end of the night. The printables will help you set up a fetsive cookie table and a hot cocoa bar.
