Holiday Smiles Emoji Style

Admit it, 
Emojis make you grin,
and I bet Emoji Tags with Santa hats will make you laugh...

It is going to be an Emoji-ful Christmas,
tagged on gifts and stuffed into stockings...

there is one for any emotion...

and even for those on the naughty list...

Because really,
 all we want for Christmas is a Coke and a Smile, right?
(this is for my nephew, who has never had a soda...
I'm going to be in big trouble)

Cranberry Butter

Cranberries + Butter =
the perfect Thanksgiving duo

I wouldn't have anything else on my 

Creamy, rich, sweet and tart...
who wants a bite?

Cranberry Butter

1 stick softened butter
1 cup cranberries
1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons orange juice

Pulverize cranberries in bottom of a blender or in a food processor, then mix in remaining ingredients.  I  like it a little "chunky" but combine until you have your desired consistency.

Turkey Croissants

The kitchen on Thanksgiving morning is always bustling with dinner prep
but breakfast cannot be ignored.
Last year it was all about Turkey Cinnamon Rolls,
but for 2014 I'm making it even easier with,
Turkey Croissants...

Flakey, rich, cute...
(and from the bakery)

little "butter-balls", 
perfect for gobbling up before the big feast!

(don't be scared...no turkeys were harmed in the making of this breakfast)

Printable Feathers are Here

and the easiest way to make the beaks...

I used a smidge of cream cheese to adhere the candy eyes and orange sections.
Happy Thanksgiving!
