Merry Merry Merry!!!

  • Merry Merry Merry blog friends.  As promised, the Eggnog Bread recipe is below for you.  It is TASTE OF HOME's recipe.  I leave out the red and greed candied cherries and the raisins....But that's just me.  

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped red and green candied cherries


  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and butter until well blended. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture alternately with eggnog, beating just until blended. Fold in the pecans, raisins and cherries.
  • Transfer to a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

 IT came without packages, boxes and bags.......

Yes it did!  Christmas is here today and it is lovely. 

BUt tomorrow is our celebration when Fireman and 

Al come home.  I cannot wait.  I have some baking

Santa brought 3 inches of snow, so I woke to a Winter Wonderland.

I'll have a quiet day - a new puzzle to assemble and some knitting while watching some Christmas movies.

Santa brought me a new coat and lots of chocolate. We are off to Christmas Part 3 with the new grandbaby so I am one happy grandma!
Merry Christmas!

I make an eggnog bread too. I do not add the candied fruit but I add raisins. I have added chocolate chips but the people prefer the raisins. So seasonal.

No yarny goodness this year, but he did bring me a new camera so I can get better pictures for the blog.

Have a great celebration with your family tomorrow.

Merry Christmas! I don't like cherries, so I'll definitely leave those out.

I did get some yarn for Christmas; more Plymouth Kudo in three different colors!

Can you believe that Santa brought 2 inches of snow to Fort Worth, Texas? No joke. It's true!! We finally just got home from the round of family houses--driving in the snow all the way. Glad to be home, but I have to say it was a wonderful day!! Merry Christmas to all!
