Thanks to all who linked up last week.. I hope your Holiday was wonderful- full of lots of good foods. I ate so much that I was inspired to work out this morning. I have honestly had trouble getting back into the swing of exercising since I had my baby. But, Thanksgiving put me over the edge! Good food tends to do that! :)
I did a really fun project for out Thanksgiving this year. I made a cornucopia out of bread. It was a huge hit. Nobody needs to know how easy it was, though. They can all just be wowed!
I used foil to form a cornucopia. It used a lot of foil...
Then I made a simple pizza dough recipe- or you could use the Pillsbury pre-made bread sticks. Cut the dough into strips to wrap around the cornucopia.
Spray your foil with cooking spray.
My little helper
All wrapped up. Put it ona cookie sheet to bake.
Whisk an egg and brush the dough before baking. This makes it shiny.
Bake @ 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. Check to make sure it isn't getting too brown. If it is, reduce the temp a little. But, you want the inside to be cooked through.
Fill with some beautiful foods. I was going to do dip and veggies, but ran out of time, so I filled it with fruit instead and it ended up being an AMAZING centerpiece.
Now...on to our linky. I would like to highlight a few of the favorites from last week.
Black Bean and Pumpkin Chili from Cherished Handmade Treasures. Doesn't that sound amazing?! I am a huge fan of soups- especially now that cold wather has set in.
Also, I really loved the Holiday Recipe Collection over at Just Give it Your best. She shared a TON of recipe favorites for the holidays. Make sure to check them out.
