Sorry I don't have any fun festive recipes to share.  
Work has been busy and I have been busy, per usual. 
But here is an awesome spice rub that I made the other night and coated some chicken breasts with it.
So incredibly delicious.  You must try this.

Chile Rub
1 T plus 1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp coarse salt

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients.  The brown sugar will caramelize slightly when cooked, giving foods a sweet, tasty glaze. 
 Try it on whole chicken or turkey, pork and most cuts of beef.
Makes 10 tsp.

Holiday Breakfast

Hello my faithful followers, are you still out there?
What a crazy last couple of weeks, one illness after another + busy work weeks = no blogging.
So sorry about that.
PLUS I absolutely hate the no light situation we have going on with this winter weather.
By the time I start cooking at night it is pitch black outside, meaning our already dark kitchen is even darker.
So while I have been cooking, I've not been taking pictures for ya'll.
Again I apologize. 
But I must say I think this will make up for it!
Last night we had a Hanukkah supper club. It was GREAT.
I made chocolate chip Challah, from this recipe.
It was a hit!
Then this morning, I decided to take the leftover Challah and make some totally Challah french toast.
Best decision I've made in quite some time.
It was delicious.
Therefore you should try it could buy your Challah if you want to skip the work of bread making.
It really was quite easy, just a tad time consuming. 

French Toast, Challah!
1 loaf of Challah (any kind)
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1tsp vanilla

Cut your Challah into slices, don't make them too thick, about 1/2 in is perfect.  I sliced the first ones a tad too thick.
Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla on a plate.
Dip each piece of bread on both sides into the egg wash.  Let excess drip off.
Place in a preheated non stick skillet.  Cook about 1 min on each side or until golden brown.
Serves 2.

Darn Flu Season

I've felt like this since Friday morning! 
If only I looked this cute when I'm sick...I won't include a picture to prove that point.
Believe me, it isn't pretty.
Sorry about the lack of posting, as my diet has been made up of vegetable broth and jello for the last 48 hours.
I promise I will return soon, as I am finally starting to feel better and almost able to join the living again.
Thanks for sticking with me!!!!
