I am just now getting around to showcasing the baking, cooking, mixing....we did in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
- Sugar Cookies: The sugar cookies were a new challenge. My advice don't give up and it isn't as easy as it looks. This was my 3rd try, and the only ones good enough to take a picture of. I did however find a wonderful new blog to follow in the research www.sweetopia.net . She has great recipes, tips, and encouragement. Go check her out.

- Lea's Banana Nut Bread: The banana nut bread is an old favorite at our house. My tip is freeze your brown bananas throughout the year, and I like to make the mini loaves. This recipe can be found here.Lea's Banana Nut Bread
- Ghiradelli Fudge: This season was my first attempt at fudge. I made it twice, the first time was better (not shown), but this one was good and popular at a party. The recipe calls for white chocolate with minimal bittersweet. On my first attempt, I did mostly bittersweet with a touch of white chocolate, this was my family's preferred version. Click here for the recipe.
- Flanigan's Seasoned Pretzels: One of my family's favorites, and they are great anytime of year. They are nice to have around for last minute gifts, just package them in a cute tin. This recipe can be found here. Flanigan's Seasoned Pretzels
- Almond Bark Pretzels: No recipe here, we just had leftover almond bark. My son spread pretzels in a pan, drizzled almond bark, and sprinkled them. The almond bark was left over from another recipe and we didn't want to waste it.
