Welcome to my blog. A place to document my journey through life via the things I love most.

Eggnog loaf


This is the greatest guilty pleasure breakfast for me during the holidays. Pan fried with a bit of butter and a dark cup of coffee... Mmm.  

This is super simple and great for drop in entertaining or for hostess gifts. It takes barely 5 mins to whip up and bakes in 35 min.
