This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered. Congrats to Maggie!! We’ll contact you for details.
It’s that time of year to bring out the holiday decor, we’re starting today. And with that comes all the memories as we put up the tree, hang each ornament, and start making holiday treats. This is my favorite time of year to make and bake all things Christmas. I love getting together with my mom to make all of her famous goodies. Isn’t she a pretty lady! Can you believe she’s only 75 in this picture (now 76)?!
Here are just a few of my favorite recipes that come right from my mom and are made every year.
- Sweet Bread Wreaths – I made so many of these growing up, in wreaths and trees, to give out to all my friends.
- Chocolate Drop Cookies – Little Devils – these are made for almost every event/party we have. They are bite size and sooooooo good!
- Homemade Lollipops – always a Christmas tradition, made with red and green coloring and cinnamon flavoring!
- Chocolate Fudge – Oh boy! This is the best. Always made during the holidays, such a favorite.
Can you tell we like to make and bake during the holidays?! So many favorites. What about you? What yummy things are you making and baking?
Along with holiday memories and family get togethers this season, Just Ask, an M&T sponsor, is encouraging us all to talk with our family members about their family genetics. Together you can take a quiz asking about your inheritance to determine whether you should be further evaluated for either Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer syndrome or Lynch syndrome. It’s quick, the quiz takes less than 1 minute to complete.
And our friends from Just Ask are helping us enjoy more making and baking during the holidays with family by giving away a KitchenAid mixer.
