As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us. As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer. We have loved our time going to Outlander events, as there is no better way to get through Droughtlander than being with others who have your same addiction. Sharing our adventures in all things Outlander was our motivation to start this blog. We have enjoyed having a place to talk about our love for the books, author, show, cast, and crew. As we begin the festivities to celebrate the new year, we wanted to take time to reflect on our favorite memories of 2016. Come take a look at some of our favorite moments!

I was craving some homemade biscuits and where better to find a recipe than Outlander Kitchen!
Mrs. Bug’s Buttermilk Drop Biscuits (p. 246) were easy to make. All ingredients, other than buttermilk, are a staple in my house.
The finale of Outlander season 2 brings a conclusion to the dynamic adaption of Dragonfly in Amber. The anticipation of the emotional roller coaster ride at the series conclusion required the planning and preparation of a comfort food that I could share with friends as we watched. Thankfully Outlander Kitchen provided a wealth of choices. My daughter, age 9, was intent on helping prepare a special dessert. We ultimately chose the “MacKenzie’s Millionaire Shortbread” on p. 252.

Once I got a hold of a copy of the Outlander Kitchen Cookbook (a gift from Daddy; so thankful he “enables my addiction.” Now I can keep my signed copy in a safe place and use my unsigned copy as I cook. I can write notes in it and it won’t matter when food splatters upon the pages!) I just had to try out a recipe right away.
