Bourbon Recipes for Merrier Holidays!

Whole Wheat Bourbon Banana Bread

The holidays are approaching at a blazing speed. I don’t know about you but I always seem to stop taking good care of myself during all the festivities from Halloween till New Years. This year my answer for Thanksgiving is in a bourbon bottle. Don’t worry, I’m not planning on drinking my way through the holidays, just using it to flavor a few of my favorite treats.

For breakfast the day of the big cook I suggest having some Whole Wheat Bourbon Banana Bread. It’s chock full of pecans and will get your ready for the day of cooking ahead.

 Maple Spiced Toddy

After the big meal I think a Maple Spiced Toddy is in order. You can leave out the bourbon if you don’t imbibe  – it’s a nice spiced cup of tea on its own.

It never hurts to have a few fun plates around to cheer you up either. I love my steam-punk octopus dinnerware. The best part? The “suckers” on the handle of the tea cup! You can get these recipes and more in my monthly columns at :
