Recipes for When It's Cold Outside~
A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 52

Did you know: The song "Baby, Its Cold Outside"
was written by Frank Loesser in 1944 and was
premiered when he sang the duet with his wife
at their Navarro Hotel housewarming party.


Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 52!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


It may not snow in our sleepy little Victorian town by the sea, but sure has been downright bone-chilling cold lately! With keeping warm and cozy in mind, today's features are recipes that are sure to warm body and spirits during the cold Winter months.


From GirliChef
Ponche Navideño
Traditional in Mexico, this warm holiday drink includes guavas, sugar cane,cinnamon & tamarind, apples and oranges in this aromatic brew.


From Shockingly Delicious
"Meaty without containing meat, thick, rich tasting without being fatty, this is fill-you-up-but-not-out stuff."


From Culinary Adventures with Camilla
Like Limoncello, but with Rhubarb!
