Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange

Hello all!

I hope you've been enjoying the holiday season. I've been busy spending time with family and friends, not to mention beginning my Bachelor's degree program at Johnson and Wales - lots of work! But I wanted to share with you just a little of my holiday fun.

This year, I participated in a Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange hosted by Michelle from A Healthy Mrs., and it was a lot of fun. I received an awesome gift from Steffani at With Love from the Vine - an ebelskiver pan and mix, and some delicious pomegranate jelly!

I was so excited to have one of these pans, I've always eyed them and thought that those little pancake puffs must be so fun! I can now say that they are, indeed, lots of fun.

I followed the directions on this ebelskiver mix and they turned out to be so delicious! They're crispy on the outside and fluffy and eggy on the inside; and divine with pomegranate jelly, as Steffani suggested. I know they're a traditional Danish holiday treat, but I thought maybe they'd get along with all of our Swedish Christmas decorations as well. :)

A big thank you to Steffani for this gift! I am so excited to keep experimenting with delicious ebelskivers.

If I don't pop back in before Tuesday, have a fantastic rest of 2013! And thank you, as always for reading my blog; it's been such a fun year of food exploration.
