 My friend, Misty made us Ebelskivers for New Years.
What's an Ebelskiver you say?
Well, it's a danish fluffy pancake
that can be filled with treats to make them
either sweet (fruit, jam, chocolate, etc)
or savory (cheese, herbs, bacon, etc)

Check out this Nordic Ware Ebelskiver pan

 Following the directions on the above
Ebelskiver pancake mix,
pour into the pan

Add your favorite filling
Here Misty used pumpkin butter, nutella,
and a boursin cheese bacon mixture

 Pour more of the ebelskiver pancake batter
on top
Use these amazing ebelskiver tools
to turn them around

Check out Misty
She's ninja fast!

Texas Olive Ranch

If you've been to the
you just might have met Barbara 
Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars

She is taking olive oils and balsamic vinegars to a whole new level
Mixing up some viniagrette cocktails I never dreamed I'd sip from a small plastic cup
such as...

Blackberry White Balsamic Vinegar
with Myer Lemon Olive Oil

"Take a nose"
as Barbara says

Now taste
"Isn't it exquisite?"
another barb-ism!

Perfect as marinades, dips or dressings! 

Another fabulous combo

Pecan Balsamic Vinegar with Rio Orange Olive Oil
smells like Thanksgiving!

Now this one,
Rattlesnake Chipotle and Pepper Olive Oil,
you want to be a little careful
when you "take a nose"
it's got a kick

but it's an awesome marinade, and even good over popcorn!

You can order from the website, but if you are local to D/FW
Contact me, and I will get you in touch with her
It'll save on the shipping costs
