I was really looking forward to Christmas this year, especially as a new homeschooling family--oh all of the fun activities we would do (don't forget, recipe reading and baking math counts as learning 🤗)! But, confession: sadly, most of my plans never happened. We finally just made our Christmas fudge on the eve of Christmas Eve, and our gingerbread cookie dough is currently in the refrigerator waiting to be rolled out and baked on Christmas Eve. So we're definitely a bit late this year, but I think every bit of 2020 has been off. Hey, at least we have our home, health, cookies for Santa...and saw the Star of Bethlehem 🥰! Regardless of how your December has turned out, here's a super quick and easy peanut butter fudge recipe for all of you fellow slackers (also, it's just a good recipe):
Addicting. If I had to sum pralines up in one word to someone who doesn't know what this sweet, southern delicacy is, it would certainly be 'addicting.' I fell in love with this insanely rich, sugary and buttery candy in Savannah years ago. The brown sugar just melts in your mouth. I really struggle to stay away from them. So while everyone is busy making their Christmas fudge, I'm working on my traditional pralines (even though there's never a bad time to make or eat them). They also make for nice little gifts because usually, most of our family and friends don't make them .
Banana bread is an awesome way to use up those leftover bananas that have been hanging in the fruit basket for a few days too long. If you're like me, you tend to stick with the traditional banana bread or banana muffins (which are actually my personal favorite), but sometimes we just need to change it up. Here, you can transform your usual banana bread into a beautiful bundt cake. If you want to really dress it up, drizzle a sweet brown sugar icing on top of it...now you have something that you can proudly show off in your cake dish.
