This year has marked a rather big life event for me – well, actually, quite a few big life events, but one of the ones I’m most proud of is the founding of Chicagogrammers with my blog wife, Chrissy. It’s been a labor of love and requires a commitment I haven’t always shown for my blogging career, and for that I’m proud. An immediate and welcome side effect of starting the Instagram account and Facebook group is the addition of new friends and acquaintances in my life. One of these new friends is Ellie, of the absolutely outstanding blog, “I’m Hungry by Nature.”

Ellie cooks up some pretty amazing things (with gorgeous photos!), and on my definite must-try list for the holiday season, she’s got these little Rosemary Shortbreads. With just a hint of sugar in them, they seem like more of a savory cookie, and as Ellie says, the rosemary looks like “classy sprinkles.” Classy rosemary sprinkles – what a wonderful time of the year!

White Cran Rosemary Christmas Sangria

I’ve made homemade, from-scratch sangria exactly one time in my life. It was for my BFF, Liz, on her birthday, and it took kind of a long time for a thirsty crowd. I think the worst part was that I had to make simple syrup on the stove…in August.

This sangria doesn’t require any simple syrup – just a bit of sugar. It looks so fantastic and refreshing!

Because sangria, as the author of the original post notes, is “pretty much chop, pour, stir, get drunk,”  I’m not going to list the ingredients. Please visit Stoned Kitchen for the full sangria recipe and instructions.
