Happy Happy Holidays!

This will sound a bit crazy, but I’m already prepping for the 2013 holidays by documenting all the wonderful food and ideas that came my way this year. There were so many festive, creative and impressive recipes that I found rummaging through old notes and browsing the internet. This one in particular, Bacon Cheese Wreath was found on the Taste of Home website. An appetizer like this is totally up my alley and I just had to make it. It was extremely easy and definitely a crowd pleaser.

I followed the recipe exactly with no modifications however if you or your guests do not want meat, simply omit the bacon.

Flat leaf parsley and pimento were used as garnishes…so simple yet so effective…why didn’t I think of this? You may just want to add this page to your favorites and tuck it away for next year!

From me to you…

Introducing the most glorious Fairy Godmother, Gloria.

During the making of each fairy, I often think about what names I’ll give them. Sometimes the names will come easy like for example when I made Basil. She has a very bright spring green color to her and just reminded me of all the pretty greens of a herb garden.

For Gloria, she was inspired by the Christmas Song “Gloria.” As I designed her I was listening to that song performed by the untouchable Patti Labelle. If you haven’t heard this rendition…this must be the very next thing you do after reading this post!

Gloria is timeless and beautiful just like the song and you can find her along with many others on, ETSY!

Happy Holidays and many more fairies to come!
