A few have emailed to ask me what posole (or pozole) is and how it's made etc...since I've only described it as a stew like confection...now I have a visual! LOL! Hope it makes your mouth water! :P What's in it? Well...it has hominy, chicken, and you have the option of adding ingrdients such as cabbage, raddish, onions, & dried cheese (kind of like parmesan). There are many other ingredients you can add...but that's all optional. Many like to make it with beef or pork in "red" stock/broth and some without the hominy...but we go the healthier route especially with my mom being diabetic.

Then of course the kids wanted to leave a special treat for Santa...so we made him my YUMMY peanuts and chocolate chip cookies! I call them "fat nuts" because I've NEVER liked "thin" cookies! I love them when they come out of the oven nice and warm and so fluffy and chocolatey gooey in the center...MMMM.
