Since the previous 2 years I had a similar thread I thought I would bring it back again this year.  Come and share your beauty or holiday tips, stories or anything that stood out for you during 2018 as we count down the days to a new year and celebrate the different holidays.

 

If you guys want... I can do the daily questions again. Starting December 1st, each day a new question will be asked related to either the holidays or beauty for 2018. If you have a question you would like me to use please pm me. I’ll add it to the list and tag you when it’s posted.

 

Now let's P-A-R-T-Y!!!!!!

My favorite holiday dessert is Caramel cake or a white chocolate raspberry cake. I'm usually not a cake eater but I love either one of these.

Tough but very good question! I loved reading everyone's answers <3 I cannot choose a few favourites they are all so good <3

 

Of course, around Christmas, there is the aforementioned traditional panettone from our Italian friends

In more Italian desserts, my family really loves tiramisu and we usually eat it in December so I associate it with Christmas

Sometimes I make my father this Filipino fruit salad as it's his favourite. I kind of died a little when I learned the recipe... it has..... a LOT more sugar than I realized. I think I was living in the fantasy that it was healthy because it involved fruit ha ha

One of my friends is vegan so now I am trying to learn to make vegan desserts. I can make a cheesecake with raw cashews that looks like this Smiley Very Happy

I'll be honest, it doesn't taste like cheesecake. At all. But it is still pretty yummy.

Everything looks sooo freaking good @pocketvenus! I LOVE tiramisu! But it has to be well made... some just aren't that good. Smiley Very Happy  Let me know if you find good vegan dessert recipes! Smiley Happy

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

@veronika23I agree!! We like to pick our tiramisus up from this Austrian baker who doesn't make it too sweet.

 

The cheesecake recipe I got from Jamie Oliver's YouTube channel from a couple guest bakers called Happy Pear or something like that. Wish I could share the link! It's also pretty easy to make, you just need some unusual ingredients like agar agar

@pocketvenus  oh nice!

 

Thanks! I'll google it. I'm sure I can find it! Smiley Happy

Every single one of these things looks deliriously amazing, @pocketvenus! We're supposed to get snowed in this weekend, so I'm feeling like a baking party may need to take place in my kitchen- YUM.

@qusporksounds like the perfect snow-in strategy!! ❄️❄️❄️

I love Ganong chicken bones,my favorite holiday candy for sure and I usually like any homemade stuff.

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

@Seymore3what are ganong chicken bones? I don't think I've heard of this before. Thx! Smiley Happy

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

@Seymore3 I have found them in Alberta but they are ricdiously priced. They have them in soeacialty candy shops. It’s one of my fav Christmas candies from back home!!

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

Cool! Thanks so much for sharing! I wonder if I could find them. Thx! Smiley Happy @Seymore3

Don't get nearly as excited about food as I do dessert.  Have a big meal on the Eve at the In-laws and another one Christmas Day at my fams.  Nothing fancy for me,  just chocolate fudge and 7 layer bars.  Thanks for putting the work in for everyone's fun! @veronika23

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

7 layer bars... that sounds familiar but unsure what those are @byme4u.  Oh you are most welcome. I think this is the 3rd year I do this. People seem to enjoy it. Smiley Happy

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

@veronika23  They're made with Eagle brand milk, chips, nuts, graham base, coconut.  Lots of change ups on ingredients with candies, and nuts.

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

Ohhh sounds interesting! Thanks Smiley Happy @byme4u

@veronika23 I'd love to have my grandmother's pinulata.  I Googled it, and apparently it's also called striffoli:

I wish the pic did it justice.  It's fried dough balls covered in honey.  This pic is close, but there's to many sprinkles and we never had a cherry on there; but we did have walnuts.

@greeneyedgirl107 wow! This looks delicious!! 

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

Ohhhh! Sounds yummy @greeneyedgirl107! I don't think I've ever heard/seen this before.

@veronika23  Growing up, my Grandmother would make several types of cookies, but my favorite was Gumdrop cookies. Sooo good with lots of brown sugar, butter, pecans and gumdrops. I always make them, but they never seem as good as my Grandmother's!!!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜

Re: BIC's 2018 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!! πŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸŽβ„οΈ

@yankeefaithful I’m sure you do your grandmothers recipe justice, but I know the feeling! I loved my grandfathers mashed potatoes, not sure what made his sooooo perfect but even though I even use his pot and mixer I can never get them to taste like he made them. There’s something so special about those taste memories left to us by those we love, that extra hint of love our grandparents added is something we will never forget!
