For me, there is really only one time of year that I drink my calories. I am just not a milk, soda, or juice drinker. I like my zero calorie water, but when the holidays come around, I want a special drink, & I want it to be good! This Crimson Christmas Punch is pretty darn good! It's got a myriad of tropical, fruity flavors all packed into one punch. The sherbet makes it all foamy & delicious too! This punch is a beautiful shade of red, so it's perfect to serve for Christmas parties. Plus, it's non-alcoholic, so the whole family can enjoy it! Happy Holidays!

Last year around Christmastime I made some buckeyes, which to me, is traditional Christmas candy. There is just something about chocolate & peanut butter that a lot of people love. It's a perfect combination & goes great in desserts! This year I wanted to keep with that buckeye tradition, but in a new form. These Buckeye Brownies, taste just like buckeye truffles, but in a decadent brownie bar. One square, & my satisfaction for sugar & chocolate is fulfilled for the rest of the day. They are definitely rich & satisfying! These Buckeye Brownies are an easy neighbor gift idea as well, because if you cheat & use a boxed brownie mix like I did, they are thrown together in a cinch! Definitely make these when you have company to share them with, but make them soon!

Last December I did a 12 Days of Christmas Sweets Series, and although it was fun, it was a LOT of work. I just can't blog that many days in row straight through. It's incredibly stressful. So this year I am promising you a "No Dinners December", where I only share sweet treats & things for parties rather than meals for dinner. I hope that doesn't make you sad, it's supposed to be a fun thing! Gear up for some delicious sweets, drinks & appetizers!

Got Turkey? Need a last minute turkey leftovers idea? I know Thanksgiving was only a mere 2 days ago, & you might be sick of turkey by now, but let's get to using those leftovers! I made this last night for dinner & posted a quick pic to instagram & my personal facebook page. Apparently people thought it was a good idea, so I hurried & snapped a picture. I don't have a white box for taking pictures after it gets dark, & this picture is less than perfect, but you get the idea. Creamy turkey, broccoli, & rice casserole dish! Delish!

If you follow me on Instagram (@amber_dessertnowdinnerlater) you might recognize most of these pics from earlier this month. I just had to share this fun night with you guys & tell you about Lagrima vanilla. So, this is kind of a sneak peak into some of the fun parts of being a blogger...like the events! It's a super fun time when you get together with your blogging besties like mine above: Aimee (Like Mother Like Daughter), Alli (Cupcake Diaries), Me, & Yvonne (Tried and Tasty). Good laughs & great fun is to be had by all.
