Happy Holidays everyone. Thanks for stopping by today. I know you are busy cooking, wrapping, and possibly still shopping for presents. If you are baking for the holidays I'm certain you have dried cherries on hand for putting in cookies and breads.

Orange & Olive Salad #French Fridays with Dorie

Orange & Olive Salad: simplelivingeating.com

I was extremely skeptical about this recipe, so much so that I decided to just slice a single orange and a few slivers of onion to test this recipe solo at lunch.
Now I'm a Mediterranean girl and I love olives and onions, and oranges are terrific in season but the thought of putting these three ingredients together with olive oil and salt... just seemed odd.

It is a Southern Italian tradition to have a feast of seven fishes on Christmas Eve. The origin of the tradition is debated, but most likely the seven fishes represent the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.

During the holidays when family and friends get together there is usually one or more guests who can't eat sugar. It is nice to have a little treat that they can enjoy too. This Sugar-Free Holiday Ricotta Loaf does the trick in my family. Everyone likes it just because it tastes good!

Tis the season to be extra busy and there is no exception in the Balch house. On top of shopping for Christmas presents and holiday parties. My son is working toward a Boy Scouts merit badge in rock climbing and my daughter just won her first foil competition. Plus she is participating in a softball clinic.

Chicken with PInapple Sauce- simplelivingeating.com


I love being part of Food of the World because I never know what part of the world I will get to explore. Samoa a group of islands in the South Pacific was chosen for this month, and I have to say quite frankly, I barely even heard of the country, other than that I knew the US had a territory in the region.

There was the "Year Without a Santa Claus." but could you image a Thanksgiving without BACON. No I didn't say turkey; I said BACON.
