Time for Secret Recipe Club! I was super excited for this month because I got assigned The Freshman Cook who had my blog last month! (and created these awesome andes mint brownie bites!)
Every week Teri creates a list of what she will be making for the week and when I saw this posting I knew what I would be making! (This was a really fun sneak preview too!)
Teri said the exact same things I was thinking when I saw this.
- The recipe uses items you probably already have in your pantry/fridge.
- We thought you could substitute the dried apricots for apricot (or any other flavor of preserves)
- It's Holiday season and you are always searching for a new recipe or something quick and easy to bring to the next party-- Yes, I said next party because if your work place is anything like mine there will be about 4 parties between now and December 25th.
