It is the holiday season so that means a lot of us are cooking and baking up a storm. I don’t have a ton of recipes that I make (pretty sure I eat my sweet potato/chicken/avocado combination every day of my life) but I do have a few things that my family/friends request for me to make during this time of year! I thought I would put them all in one place just in case you are looking for something delicious to make:
–S’mores bars. If you are looking for a dessert to take to a holiday party… this is the one.
–Hot chocolate cookies. Got a cookie exchange coming up? Bring these.
–Braided bread. This one is my sister’s absolute favorite and it wins her heart every single time.
-I haven’t made these for awhile but I will be this week because they are ridiculously good—> Candy Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches.
–Apple Fritter Cake because really… there is not a lot better than apple fritters.
–My top 17 favorite salads ever to make at home because lots of salads balance out eating all of the holiday sweets.
We had a pretty low-key day over here. Brooke woke up with a cough and so we stuck to snuggling, coloring and My Little Pony.
I also made cookies for some friends because all of the above recipes made me really hungry but I didn’t have the ingredients for any of them so I settled on making 3 dozen cookies.
My mom gave Brooke these boots on Saturday and they are not coming off. Frozen snow boots for the win.
We even took them out for a mini walk.
My mom made her Russian Chicken for dinner and it hit the spot.
At least we got plenty of cuddling in together yesterday and she even let me carry her around like a baby.
We Facetimed with my brother and his family in Arizona.
And it was quite a gorgeous night and view from my parents’ deck.
A selfie just felt right.
