I love to create in the kitchen...but I don't need to be eating all that I bake! That probably explains my weird fantasy of having seven children and baking for them (do not tell the husband!). But I digress, the holidays are the perfect excuse for me to be getting messy in the kitchen. I am putting together tins of Christmas treats for family and I am having so much fun. Here are a few of the recipes that I've tried...
-Girl's Gone Child: English Toffee (I've never made toffee before...It as surprisingly simple! And its super tasty. I used pecans instead of walnuts).
-My Big, Fat, Chocolate Chip Cookies (delicious! I made them normal size...I know, not as fun. But instead of chocolate, I put red and green M & Ms and I added a handful of pecan pieces).
-The Idea Room's Oreo Bark (but instead of traditional Oreos, I used Candy Cane Joe-Joe's from Trader Joe's. Which I'm addicted to, by the way. They are basically peppermint/candy cane oreos.)
Next up, Snickerdoodles & Gingersnaps. Mmm!
