Winter Sangria

Winter Apple Pear + Cranberry Sangria | Luci's Morsels :: LA Food + Lifestyle Blog
It's the weekend before Christmas and I still have some important things I need to do. I think the most important is that I haven't watched Love Actually yet and that needs to change immediately! I just got home last night from Northern California, so my guy and I are planning a relaxing time together on the couch, watching our favorite holiday movie. This delicious winter sangria with pears, apple juice, and cinnamon sounds like the perfect libation to enjoy during the weekend! This is a recipe from last year, but it's so delicious, it's worth sharing again.

Soft Molasses Cookies

Soft Molasses Cookies | Holiday Christmas Cookie Exchange Idea | Luci's Morsels :: LA Food Blog
I usually try not to double up on the delicious desserts in one week, but I can't seem to stop thinking about cookies these days! Luckily, my sister texts me that she's eating the cookies we baked together too. I still feel guilty, but at least I'm not alone. Eating in good company is always better! These molasses cookies are thicker and cakey-er than most molasses cookies, which makes them oh so very light. I was surprised to find that many molasses cookie recipes call for sour cream. The flavor is very subtle in the final cookie, but I can pick up on it now!

Black + White

Vests are becoming one of my favorite things to wear. They tend to be warm, cozy layers without making you feel like a marshmallow. And the super cute black and gray plaid detail on the shoulders keeps me looking too much like a marshmallow as well!
