Happy Holidays!!!

Gosh it's been so long since my last post! The holiday season is probably the busiest time of the year for me, with traveling, work, dinner parties...the list goes on. I'm so glad I've finally found the time to actually sit down and post! So what's been up? I think Christmas has to be my second favorite holiday, my birthday being first of course! ( Which just so happens to be in a few weeks!) You guys know me, I'm a "traditional" kind of girl, and I think it's important to not only create new traditions, but keep up with the old ones. Growing up my family always had a annual Holiday Cookie Bake the weekend before Christmas. I remember all of my little cousins would come over, and we'd bake until our little fingers came off. It was such a fun and exciting experience, but once we got older, everyone kind of drifted off into their own things. This year I was not having it! I called my girls, and made plans for my very first annual Holiday Cookie Bake, thrown by yours truly of course. Let me say, the turnout was great! It was about 10 of us, and everyone brought their fav cookie mix, along with a baking sheet, and once the wine was open, we were baking! We had such a good time, and it was so good catching up with each of them, seeing as though all of us have pretty hectic schedules. It was really nice spending time with each of them, right before the holiday. Take a peek!

This table was packed when everyone arrived with their dough, and the bake started. We started putting cookies on TV tables!

Jackpot!




Prima and Prima


In the end we had Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Peppermint Whoopie Pie's, White Chocolate Macaroons, Peanut Butter Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Truffles, and Peppermint Mocha's.


Delish!
