I love to make homemade food gifts for the holidays. Last year I made some delicious Christmas Spice Tea Mix. I gave it as gifts to my co-workers, and they all loved it. This year, I am making this Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix. The mix tastes great. It has the perfect kiss of peppermint in every sip. I gave some away at Thanksgiving. Everyone gave it two thumbs up.
I bought the jars at World Market for $1.50 each. I crushed the candy canes in the food processor until they were turned into candy cane dust. I just mixed the crushed candy canes with the rest of the ingredients and poured the mix into the jars. This makes about 5 1/2 cups of mix. To make hot chocolate, combine 1/3 cup of mix with 1 cup of hot water or milk.

I've already made two batches of these nuts. They are super delicious. They are sweet and salty with a hint of a kick. I bought the cashews at Costco. The container has enough cashews to make a double batch of this recipe. I highly recommend doubling the recipe. These nuts are so addictive. These are great to snack on during the holidays. I plan on making another batch to give away to my neighbors.

The Hot Turkey Club Dips are a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving tomorrow. These are also perfect for watching the Iron Bowl this weekend! I dipped the turkey in some beef broth to give it more flavor and topped it with some honey mustard, bacon and cheese. They were so delicious. I can't stop thinking about these sandwiches. We used our favorite pretzel slider buns from Costco. If you can't get a pretzel roll, I suggest a french roll. You want a firmer roll for this sandwich. I am really looking forward to leftover turkey this year!

You asked for it, now here it is!
The Plain Chicken Cookbook!!
I have assembled a fabulous collection of 50 recipes for you.

This book is a great way to share Plain Chicken with your friends and family at the holidays!
This makes a great for co-workers, your hair stylist, your secret Santa pal, your neighbor.
This is also the perfect teacher gift. My Mom was a teacher, and she assures me that teachers don't want a candle or school supplies. They would prefer an awesome cookbook with tons of easy recipes for after work!

This is not your ordinary canned tomato soup. It is doctored up with chicken broth, half and half, cheese and plenty of spices. Best of all, it has cheese tortellini mixed in. It was absolutely delicious! It only took about 15 minutes to make. Just boil the tortellini while you get the soup going. Stir in the pasta and it is done! I served the soup with a piece of garlic toast. I highly suggest dipping the garlic toast in the soup- YUM!

Our pasta was super spicy. I sent Chicken Legs to the grocery store and he bought Hot Rotel. Let me tell you, Hot Rotel is super spicy! Fortunately, we both like spicy food! I decided to splurge on calories and used Conech Smoked Sausage. It had great flavor and smelled wonderful cooking. Feel free to substitute smoked turkey sausage if you want to cut down on the calories.
This makes a ton. We saved the leftovers for lunch. I poured a little chicken broth in the container so the pasta wouldn't dry out when we reheated it. It was just as good leftover.
