Based on my notes, this is the 3rd time we've had this for x-mas day. Had a yummy bottle of Silver Oak Cab from my brother to go with! And we've had oysters two days in a row, does it get any better??? LOL!
And I did like the bacon bark I made for cookie trays, not sure how anybody else felt about it!
But the pralines were good, and the dulce de leche cookies were a hit!
