The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. And this year it seems so much more special as Brad and I are preparing for Elliott’s very first Christmas. He’s too little to remember any of this, of course, but everything is just so much more fun with a baby (except maybe 7 hour car trips).
Even still, I’ve had a lot of fun this past week looking up holiday recipes and pinning them to my #SeasonsEatings Pinterest Board. And I can’t wait until we are able to create memories with Elliott that he’ll remember. I’m sure some of those memories will involve making and enjoying favorite holiday recipes.
If you love seasonal recipes as much as I do, especially during the holiday season, I want to tell you about an opportunity to share your love of holiday goodies using my favorite way to waste time: Pinterest.
Harris Teeter is running a Pin to Win contest, with tons of awesome prizes up for grabs, which you can win, just by using Pinterest.
Here’s how you can enter to win:
And here’s one recipe to get you started — my Peppermint Mocha recipe!
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
whip cream (optional)
crushed soft peppermint candies (optional)
Pour coffee into a medium sized pot over medium heat. Whisk in cocoa powder, sugar, milk, and extract. Continue to stir 2-3 minutes until liquid is hot. Pour into a mug and top with whip cream and crushed soft peppermint candies.
Make coffee as you normally would, but use twice as much coffee. For every 6 ounces, I use a Tablespoon, so for this recipe I would use 4 Tablespoons for 12 ounces.
To help you craft your very own #SeasonsEatings recipe, Harris Teeter has generously offered to give away a $25 gift card to one of my readers.
To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me your favorite holiday food to make or eat! I’ll draw a random winner on Friday, December 6. Good luck!
