Welcome – how was your weekend? I went shopping Friday and Saturday, wrapped gifts, and we finally managed to see Catching Fire which I loved! I also just need to purchase a couple more gifts and I’ll be done shopping. Next weekend will be dedicated to food. One of our Italian traditions is having homemade raviolis on Christmas – we make the meat kind that has beef, pork and spinach. These are a family favorite and since I only make them once a year, they are highly anticipated. What food traditions do you have? I would to hear about them – please leave me a comment. Also, in case you didn’t notice, I have an updated blog design – still need a few more tweaks but I love it! I’ll be posting about it soon!
This week one of my co-hosts Julie from This Gal Cooks and I happened to be paired up for a virtual cookie recipe swap. She made an oatmeal recipe from me…..
…and I made her Thumbprint cookies which the DIY Guy said it is his new favorite cookie!
One of my favs this week was from Carrie Elle and her cute M&M trees!
Last week’s most viewed is from Joan at My Cookie Clinic. Not only does Joan whip up the cutest cut out cookies ever, her bars look pretty fantastic also!
Be sure to stop by all the hosts to see their favs this week!
