Monkey_bread_0266a

This Monday is supposed to kick off a new series on PtS since the soup kitchen has closed. But since it’s Christmas Eve and all I want to do is run around cleaning and stressing over Christmas dinner humming holiday music and baking cookies I’m simply going to wish everyone a fantastic Christmas and wonderful holidays! Here is a painless Christmas brunch idea that can be tossed in the crock pot early while the unwrapping madness occurs and is ready in time for when everyone remembers they are hungry. Here’s a little sneak peek at things to come in the following Mondays. […]

You know that old saying that nice things come in small packages? Well that’s what comes to mind with today’s post. Even though the end of the year has been kind to me with the current BigKitchen Le Creuset giveaway going on (and another surprise giveaway next week) today’s giveaway is very special to me. It may not come in a bright orange box, and Santa can’t sneak it down the chimney, because this one is hand made just for you by my man. If you are a long time follower of Pass the Sushi, or one of the many friends in […]

Post Holiday Eggnog Pancakes

It’s hard to find a balance between what to post on Pass the Sushi and what not to. I don’t photograph everything I eat (trust me, you would be appalled) but I do try to photograph the good ones. There are a few that have never even made it to a ‘photo shoot’ because I simply can’t be bothered with making them look pretty before devouring them. I am trying to strike a harmony between my tummy and my food blogging self that maybe will someday share with you some of my favorite fall back meals. As for December, there just wasn’t enough […]

Seriously, what’s a birthday without some cupcakes? I hope everyone is prepped and ready for Christmas day and enjoying some quality time today. Or at least you are calming things down and will be able to relax by tonight. I have a bit of festive work, then some holiday party-ness and a long over due Christmas Eve dinner with my family. Then I will tuck myself in tight and await a visit from Santa. Eggnog Cupcakes Discovered on Annie’s Eats, from Baking Bites & Cook’s Illustrated Ingredients: For the cupcakes: 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour ¼ teas. baking soda ½ […]

There is a mountain of presents in the middle of being wrapped, all the grocery shopping is done (I hope), and the stockings are all set to be hung. I’m taking a moment to unwind a minute and watch a little bit of The Santa Claus 3. I was expecting to be doing this with an additional 90 pounds of energy running about, but sadly, Gouda won’t be spending the holidays with us. So let’s have a little holiday run down for everyone who may be interest, if not skip ahead to the recipe for the tasty sugar cookies below. […]
