It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

Wow! With all the baking I’ve been doing this week, you would think I was one of Santa’s little helpers….if Santa’s workshop made cookies…you know, instead of toys. Yeah…

Anyway, I got a jumpstart on holiday baking for an open house we held at work to try to recruit more volunteers to our non-profit program. I volunteered myself to make all the refreshments. Why? Because I’m all kinds of crazy, I guess.  I went totally overboard, of course, but I couldn’t help it. This was my first time really baking for a crowd and it felt great! Eric is always teasing me that I should just quit my job so I can bake cookies and write books for the rest of my life. He best shut it with that talk because that is all too tempting. I’ll do it, I swear I will!

I made and assortment of yummy goodies for the event and everything was a huge hit. So much fun! I never get to cook or bake for anyone else so this was a blast for me! I couldn’t have done it without all the other lovely bloggers out there. I was inspired to include recipes I spotted on other blogs. So much talent out there.

Here’s one pic of part of the spread:

The posts below this one highlight some of the recipes I made, but it’s not all inclusive. Here’s a list of everything I made, with links where applicable.
