Gingerbread is quintessential for Christmas and I don't make anything gingerbread...ever. What's wrong with me? So last year, I decided to change that and I picked something gingerbread from my Pinterest boards. I picked out a beautiful first gingerbread dessert recipe and would love to have them again soon. The base is chewy and spiced and wonderful. The frosting is creamy and finger-licking good. The combination of the two is magical and seriously perfect for Christmas. I topped mine with a little homemade gingerbread spice mix.

Throwback Thursday #24

Throwback Thursday No. 24 | Rediscovering Old Favorites in the Recipe Archive

Two completely different recipes, but two completely incredible recipes - that's what I have to share today!

One is a fabulous snack that is super addictive and perfect for anyone who loves buffalo sauce. I was scared it would be too spicy, but it was actually pretty mild: BUFFALO CHEX MIX.

And the other recipe takes the cake...for breakfast. Instead of just regular old French toast...this recipe has an added bonus: FRENCH TOAST WITH BERRY BUTTER. Berry butter...it's literally the best. So easy to make and it adds so much to traditional French toast.

I am really digging Swedish meatballs lately. We've had them over mashed potatoes and in soup and yum! I just can't get enough! It was such a nice change of pace to have a beef-based soup. I feel like all the soups we eat are chicken or meatless. If you all have a great beef soup recipe, definitely leave me a comment below and a link to the recipe because if it's one thing I can't help, it's to hoard more recipes!

Pesto Burgers

Yum
This variation doesn't add any time to making a burger, but it sure does blow a regular burger right out of the water!

We have burgers every other Friday, so I'm always looking for different kinds of burgers to make. Some are pretty labor intensive while others, like this one, are simple tweaks that really make the burger quite different. You prepare the burger much like you would any other...form your patty and cook it. The cheese of choice (weapon of choice har har) is mozzarella and you top the burger with just tomatoes and pesto. It's all very simple, but outstanding in flavor. You can make your own pesto or buy some at the store - it's up to you. I served mine up on crazy good butter buns!
