Happy Friday!! What are your weekend plans? We are going Josh/Mandi/Bryan’s work Christmas party tonight (maybe Mandi will post up some sweet pictures of us all dressed up tomorrow). Josh and I are also heading up to my parents house for dinner on Saturday. My Mom’s is throwing a neighborhood Christmas party on Sunday, so I will be baking up some tasty desserts tomorrow for her to lay out. I hope they turn out well!!
Lets face it, we all have those recipes that scare us. For me, this has always been crackers and soufflés. Now while I don’t plan to tackle the soufflé any time soon, I did give in and tried my hand at a batch of rosemary & sunflower seed crackers yesterday. I used this recipe from food and wine, and only made a few slight adjustments. I rolled my dough out on a floured cutting board, brushed it with oil and then cut it with a pizza cutter before placing the crackers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The results were VERY yummy. I think they will be fabulous with hummus. Dough:

Homemade baked goods make me never want to go back to store bought. What recipes scare you??
