Favorite Things

Christmas Cookies from one of the Annual Cookie Baking Extravaganza's with my twin sister.

How can it be that the first week of December is already gone? This time of year always seems to move faster than the rest. Maybe it's because we are busy doing things that make the holidays special, like decorating, shopping and baking. Christmas is my favorite time to bake. I look forward to it every year.  I am actually in San Diego right now with my twin sister for our annual Christmas Cookie Baking Party. We spend a few days baking our favorite cookies and we always try something new.  I'll share more about this trip later but for now I thought I'd share some of the things that inspire me when it comes to baking. They are my go-to blogs and websites for great recipes and holiday cheer! Check them out and you might find an idea or two! Happy Friday!
