Holiday Baking: Poppy Seed Bread and Snickerdoodles!

Holiday Baking

Don’t you love this time of year?! All the baking that goes on for friends and family? I have two particular recipes that are my favorite for one very important reason: Christmas memories!  (This post may contain affiliate links.  This means that if you purchase a product through a link we have here in the post, we may be compensated at no cost to you.)

Snickerdoodles have always been my favorite cookie.  My Mother used to bake them all year, but especially at Christmas for us!  Today’s recipe is straight from my Mother’s Recipe Box!  See the recipe later in the post for printing!

Poppy Seed Bread is my favorite sweet bread!  Diana, a wonderful woman who was like my second Mother, made this every year for Christmas and passed them out!  I was one of the lucky recipients!  The recipe for this I will share today is the exact one she used!  See the recipe later in the post for printing!

Tip of the Week: Benefits of a Food Steamer

Food SteamerHave you ever used a Food Steamer? I have used one for YEARS! Imagine my surprise when I found out last year that my best friends had not ever used them! I now have them hooked and I think you will be too!  This post contains affiliate links, see our disclaimer here.

There are several brands of food steamers available.  I recommend the ones that can be multi-stacked so you can cook a whole meal at once.  Here are just a few benefits that I have experienced:

  • It cooks fish up flaky and moist.  I simply put seasoning salt on it and that is it!
  • Vegetables cook up crispy and flavorful.  (Especially corn-on-the-cob!)
  • You can literally put your whole meal in the steamer, set it and forget it.

Such a healthy and easy way to cook a delicious meal!

I am making this to take to work for our birthday celebration so I am going to assemble it the night before and bake it in the morning before I leave for work.

One thing to note…I am OK with using “out of the box” Pillsbury pie crusts but for those of you who would prefer to make your own dough, I have included the original dough recipe at the bottom of this post.
