Merry belated Christmas! The weekend comes to an end and all of a sudden it’s Monday again, like the joyous holiday didn’t even happen. Oof. Post Christmas Monday. I have a theory that I want to sell a beer called The Monday’s so when you have a case of them, it ain’t so bad.

Spending the holiday with Phil was wonderful, low key, full of friends and food and wine and card playing.  I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Close friends of our were kind enough to host a late brunch on Christmas Day. Like a good guest, I thought about what to bring as part of the feast.  I settled on a berry galette.

Tomorrow is Christmas. And it’s my first Christmas spent in NYC ever. With my husband.  I couldn’t be more excited. We will miss our families a lot, but starting a new tradition is always fun and beginning new chapters are always something to look forward to.

This cake will make your Christmas even more fun.  It looks nice, it tastes great, and I think in cake world it’s not too complicated. So don’t let this cake have all the fun with its tipsy ingredients, feel free to indulge yourself with a little bourbon or eggnog, it’s a hard cake to mess up.

A successful weekend holiday party full of friends and booze and dessert! We watched A Very Murray Christmas and agreed it was weird and wonderful.  It was also fun to make a few desserts I hadn’t tried to tackle and just made my friends the guinea pigs for all of them.  I finally attempted a cheesecake. I love cheesecake and I’d been wanting to try and make one for a while but needed a reason to do it.  This party was it.  What I loved is that I replaced your usual vanilla extract with almond extract. The flavor change up was a nice surprise and complimented the cranberry swirl.
