Cookies are such a big part of the holidays for me. I love making a festive array and creating a cookie platter for guests to enjoy… And of course you need to have something come Christmas Eve, for the big guy in red! I hear he’s partial to the homemade ones *shhh* 😉
Christmas is slowly sneaking up on us, and I could not be more excited! I’ve already pulled out my Christmas tunes, picked out my (snail mail) cards, and started making my hand crafted gifts! So it should be no surprise that I’ve also been in the kitchen playing around with festive flavours!
I love bread. Know what I love even more… (I mean besides chocolate)… FRESH baked bread, still warm, straight from the oven. Sometimes I longingly look to bygone days of other eras, when fresh, home baked bread was a daily occurrence. It’s floury love, I tell you! Unfortunately, busy modern schedules, often leave little time for dough to rise. And that, my friends, is where biscuits step in.
Are you ready for the most frightful night of the year? Halloween’s almost here! If you’re still wondering what to serve your scary party guests might I suggest my Mummy Cupcakes?
When I was a kid, my favourite candy to find in my trick-or-treat bag was chocolate covered marshmallows, the one’s that were shaped like ghosts or pumpkins. I still love that combination, which is why I can not believe that I didn’t come up with these Candy Coated Marshmallows sooner!
