Holiday treats

Well, the holiday season is almost here. Even here in Fl, I love to bake up a storm throughout December. I crank up the holiday music, make some peppermint coffee and bake away. Soon, I hope to get back into the kitchen to bake up some treats, but first I wanted to share some pasts holiday favorites!


A must make for our friend Dave. He has to have these at our annual holiday party!
