Well, I've gone and done it again; I've made a new tradition or two. This year I really wanted to try a bunch of new recipes and make them my own, and so far two of them are really big hits! I have more to make, but I've already made rum/bourbon balls and pumpkin seed brittle.
There's something about hovering over a baking sheet filled with roasted pumpkins seeds that are still crackling after coming straight out of a hot oven. I pretty much always burn my tongue as I try to eat them as fast as I can. They're the best when they're piping hot!
