Delicious looking recipes. I'm planning a pannacotta for some time over the holidays.

The beef sounds and looks very yummy. I made cookies yesterday. Broccoli-cookies, just suitable for cold days, too (3C here).

Jo said...

Very nice suggestions. The beef recipe sounds delicious.

Wow that salad looks far too nice to eat, but if I must.... I must admit I've been eating lots of salads on our holiday to Spain, and really enjoying them. Take care and have a very happy week, Sue xx

LOVE the wreath salad. What a clever and beautiful idea.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I especially love the wreath. You often judge food by how it looks before you ever eat it. This one is note worthy.

The dressing recipe sounds wonderful.

My boss made this dressing one time and it did not look appealing to me but I thought I would try some to be polite. I totally loved it. I ask the ingredients and she told me but not the proportions. I always meant to ask that but did not till years later and then she could not even remember the dressing I was talking about.

Rose said...

In case I don't get back here...Happy Holidays to you and your family.

lol, love the Santa children.
