Baked Brie with Pecans and Roasted Pepper Jam

Tonight may have been a bust, but it was a blessing-in-disguise bust. The boys were supposed to spend the night with my sister while Dan and I attended a Christmas party. Sammy got sick, which was followed by Elijah asking for a nap (uhh..there couldn't be a bigger indicator of impending sickness) and then the party was postponed because two other families had sick kids, as well. I am not happy for the sickness, of course, but very happy to have our boys at home since sickness insisted on invading their cute little bodies.

We had some yummy food ready to bring to tonight's party and we couldn't let it go to waste. So Dan and I had it for dinner! YUM! This baked brie is SO EASY, but when I tasted it I would have believed that someone had slaved over it. What a great party food! 

I am beyond excited to share with you the dessert that I will finish tomorrow and that involves chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Eeeeek!

Wishing you all a healthy, fun and SAFE weekend! Thanks so much for being here!
