Tis the Season.......

Gentle Friends, one of the things I love about the Christmas season, is anticipating the fun edible things that are only available during this time of year......  

...... over the weekend I found some of them.....  Bud's Egg Nog, an SF original and just grand with a hit of handmade Kentucky "NOG."  When I got home with the Bud's I found that we were out of MM - so back out to the store to buy more, what's "Egg" without the "NOG."  I also found  some Panettone and chocolate covered Lebkuchen - delicious!!  I was turned on to Lebkuchen when I was on vacation in Germany - in the lovely town of Nuremberg, Germany - I impatiently wait for this cookie every year and do a little jig when I find the first "kuchen's."  For me it jump starts the Christmas season!!  They also come with a plain glaze, but that touch of dark chocolate really is nice!!

Sunday I was still in the mood for some pie, pecan to be precise..... and I knew I had a recipe for Pecan Pie Bars from "Little Kitchen" Blog.  You cane click HERE to get the recipe.  What is so nice about these is a twist addition of chocolate!!

One of the many things I love about Christmas is the foods which are only available during the holiday season.

The plate is sure interesting is this transferware?

All look yummy, I love a good egg nog. Your shortbread cookies from a few posts ago also look really good

I live a dull life. I've never had eggnog before. I've never thought it looked good. But it does sound better with the MM! I can vouch for the pecan bars....they are delicious!

Wonderful! You were close to my home town when you visited Germany. I love Lebkuchen too. I seem to find them only in the military commissary this time of year and then they sell out very quick. Well...I'm a country girl....you're in the big city. I imagine you can get just about anything:)

Looks like some wonderful treats! One of the things I enjoy the most about the holidays are all the treats. I decided I don't care about the calories and I sample a little of everything, lol.

Oooh.. Lebkuchen - I had a German neighbor once who would get "care packages" from Germany. She shared Lebkuchen with us. I haven't had any since. I think I need to check with some stores and see if I can find some. YUM!!!
