Anne McAlpine: December 22, 2022

Jenn Mark sent me this Brussels sprouts recipe and it would make a great addition to your Christmas dinner. Be sure to stir gently after 15 minutes. I enjoyed them with some chickpea pasta that I had previously cooked. I added baked and shredded chicken, seasoning, and leftover cranberry sauce to it and heated it through. It was a great way to use up those leftovers and a good accompaniment to the Brussels sprouts. 

I had a request for muffins that tasted like ginger cookies and so I am sharing this recipe. It is a really old one that I have made over the years. I got it originally from my grandma and was surprised when I recently was sent almost exactly the same one. Grandma’s has a bit more spice in it but you can alter that if you wish. The other one had double the nutmeg in it but no cloves. 

A quick and easy way to use up that can of apple pie filling is to spread a can of crescent rolls out onto a sprayed baking sheet, sealing the edges. Spread the pie filling over it and top with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, baking as directed on the crescent roll container. I used what was left on the sheet when I baked my sugar and spice nuts, and it worked well. My granddaughter Kally tried one and really liked it. I simply cut them into squares. 

My family and I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2023!
