The holidays are upon us!

I realize some people have been preparing for the holidays for several weeks already (some even longer!) but I am just now getting into holiday recipes! The low carb diet will have to wait (my New Year's resolution I guess ) because I don't think any of these recipes are carb friendly. :)

I'm thinking about dividing the recipes into two or three recipes for each post. I guess that really depends on how many recipes I find that look to die for! I'm sure many will be dessert type recipes since I love to bake!

On to the recipes ............ I'll start off with breakfast. I found this little number at ""

French Toast Souffle

1 bakery loaf of butter crusty bread-10 cups cut into 1-inch cubes
8 (ounces) low-fat cream cheese, softened
8 large eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup half and half cream
1-1/4 cups maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1.  Place bread cubes in a lightly greased 9x13 baking pan.

2.  In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.  Stir in milk, half and half, 1/2 cup of the maple syrup, and vanilla until mixture is smooth.  Pour cream cream cheese mixture over the bread; cover, and refrigerate overnight.

3.  Remove souffle from refrigerator, and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

4.  Bake uncovered, for 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Pour remaining 3/4 cup maple syrup over souffle, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Serve warm.

Do you love the taste of a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven? The way it breaks apart with melted strings of gooey chocolate and a glass of cold milk? Maybe a warm cookie with a side dish of vanilla ice cream? If you're saying yes ..... yes ...... YES, but hate to bake or just don't have the time ........ you're in luck!

Hill's Science Diet Dog Food Review

Hill's Science Diet Ideal Balance Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Dinner Dry Dog Food

This is Shelby. We got her when she was barely six weeks old. She started getting picky about her food when she was around eight months old I think. Since then, we've tried everything it seems! Different brands of food, wet food, crunchy food, food with wet and crunchy food ....... you name it! We switched to a dry food with crunchy bits added brand and, while she didn't seem excited, she at least would eat.

Then I was asked to review Hill's Science Diet. Folks, if you watch the video, you can see what she prefers straight from her!! PS There is no coaxing from us at all in the video! It's not just in this video either. This is what she does every time she's given a choice between the two foods, lol. And no wonder! Did you know that Hill's Science diet includes fresh chicken as the 1st ingredient? It also contains fruits and vegetables including cranberries but does not contain corn or artificial colors, impressive! It's the kind of well balanced diet that you are going to feel great about serving to your pet every single mealtime. You can visit PetMD to get more information about the nutrients in Hill's Science diet and to learn why they are so important to the health of your dog. The people at Hill's Science diet are so sure you and your pet will happy, they are offering a free bag rebate! It's a win for you and for your pet!
