Goodness, how I love baking.
I mean really, I love baking. Or cooking. Or mixing. All of it.
If it were up to me I'd wake up bright and early every day and hang out in my kitchen all day long.
And my pantry would magically always be filled with every ingredient I needed so I'd never need to run to the store.
And, I wouldn't have to head to the gym before and after a baking session to make up for sneaking a bite. Or two. Ahem 😉
(I'm planning to go first thing in the morning. Promise.)
Here's a peek at our kitchen tonight . . .
My husband and son made their second batch of Chex Mix this year ~ they doubled the worcestershire and cayenne pepper and it really was the best it's ever been!
Then I made some Christmas Crack (so good, but I almost completely made a mess because the goo in the middle started to bubble over in my oven – make sure to keep a larger pan underneath your baking sheet to be sure to catch any extra goo!)
A quick batch of marshmallow fudge (y'all, this is the easiest fudge recipe you'll ever make, and my youngest informed me tonight that I needed to teach her how to make it when she grew up herself.)
Some Oreo Truffles – I've never made these before, but used this super handy Black & Decker Food Chopper that I'd bought this summer when it was on sale (it was just $10 then!) I love love love this little gadget and it made mixing these up a breeze!
A few M&M Pretzel Bites – I forgot to get the Christmas colors and we used the red and green ones to give away to other people ~ so we're stuck with the orange and blue ones for Christmas at our house! 😉
And for breakfast tomorrow morning I went ahead and made our favorite Almost Homemade Cinnamon Rolls trying out Jen from Balancing Beauty & Bedlam's fancy Christmas Tree idea. Mine aren't nearly as pretty as hers, but I'm pretty sure my family won't care! 😉 I'll try to take a picture in the morning to let you see how they fluff up.
So, what are you baking for Christmas? Leave a comment to share (and a link to the recipe if you'd like!) I'd love to hear!
