Foodies Freebie: December 2015 Wallpaper Collection

The Holidays are here! For our December 2015 Wallpaper Collection we share some of our favorite holiday cookies and bars, including lebkuchen (store bought, no shame!) and an upcoming recipe of Cranberry Bar Cookies that are perfect for the season. This is definitely one of our favorite times of year. Friends and family come back from abroad (or you can go visit them!), we share so much more time with loved ones and time seems to pass slowly. Something magical happens when you bring the family together: whatever bumps on the road one might be going through, suddenly they seem lighter and laughter is stretched from the afternoons to the evening.

We also feature a special version of the wallpaper, from Little Foodies. Kristen is home at school vacation, and when she saw that we were working on the December Calendar, she wanted to do her own version of it, so she added a few of her own hand-made decorations into the picture. Bellow our Desktop wallpapers, you will find the Little Foodies version of our downloadable.

We hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy this time with your family and friends!

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Sometimes you want to eat something comforting, like a creamy and cheesy Alfredo sauce.  You can go ahead and indulge with this recipe, because the great thing about it is there is no cream in it, which saves a lot of calories and fat.  Instead of cream we used pureed cauliflower, which is an ingredient used in a lot of paleo recipes nowadays because it is such a versatile vegetable that has the added benefit of being packed with nutrients, antioxidants and provides health benefits such as detoxification support for the body, it boosts brain health and aids in digestion .  This is not a paleo recipe, but it’s definitely a healthier version of this iconic sauce with a silky, creamy and delicious taste.  You can use either whole grain or regular pasta.  I’ve made it with both, paired with a green salad with pears, nuts and balsamic vinegar.   We hope you try it, and let us know what you think!

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles with White Chocolate Chips

Oh boy. We have been busy. Like over-the-top busy. And we didn’t mean to spend so many days without posting, so take this recipe as a make-up gift. This recipe Pumpkin Snickerdoodles uses both pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice, so the pumpkin fall flavor in these cookies is all in.

This recipe makes a good batch of soft and chewy cookies, and with the extra cinnamon are perfect for cool days and a good cup of coffee. You can make this recipe ahead, by freezing the dough balls already rolled in the sugar-cinnamon mix. When baking the frozen cookies, just add an additional minute to the baking time.

You can replace the white chocolate chips with white chocolate chunks, or if you prefer with semi-sweet chocolate… but we prefer this original pairing. We hope you enjoy this pumpkin-full recipe as much as we did!
