Merry Christmas!

Wanted to pop in really quick and wish you all a Merry Christmas.


I don’t have anything new to share with you today, but I thought I would give you a few last minute ideas of some of my favorites…

1.  Samoa Bark  ~ Caramel, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate and Shortbread…nothing not to love!

2.  Oatmeal Cream Pies ~ The homemade version puts a certain Little Lady to shame :)

3.  Cookies and Cream Cookies ~ Easy, fudgy, delicious and easy.  Yes, yes, yes and yes.

4.  Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats ~ No bake perfection

5.  Reeses Stuffed Oreos ~ There are no more words

6.  Peanut Butter Ritz White Chocolate Fudge ~ Fudge made with a tub of frosting.  Simple.

7.  Cake Batter Blondies ~ It all starts with a cake mix.

8.  Ice Cream Cone Cannoli ~ Impress the adults and the kids all at once

9.  Cream Cheese filled Snickerdondles ~ Yes, it is possible to improve on perfection.


Hopefully that has helped make any last minute baking decisions easier for you.  If you still can’t decide go with #5.  People will love you.


I also wanted to share with you a picture of our family Christmas card, the 2011 version.

This is a fair representation of my house on any given day.


Hope your holidays are happy and you get those sparkly Uggs you asked for!
