Fa la la la la…time for Christmas baking!

While home decorating is my jam, I do like to putter in the kitchen from time to time.

Especially at Christmas!

Here is my ideal scenario:

House completely decorated…

All baking supplies at the ready (I hate a last-minute grocery store run!)…

Christmas music playing…

Cue the snow!

Ok, so the ideal scenario doesn’t always happen. But…

I still love to make Christmas sweet treats to last the holiday season!
