Another Christmas done! My holiday was jammed full of family, colour, cheer, and of course so much food that I’ll be full for a week (just kidding, I’m nibbling on more cookies right now :D)!
Speaking of food, I’m so happy to say my challenge to bake every day since December 1st was a big success!! I ended up whipping up well over 25 different items and had so much fun in the process and have learned so much. The crazy thing is there is almost nothing left now but crumbs as I’ve given away so many trays (phew)!!
Here’s the full list of goodies I baked (they link to the recipes!):
MERRY CHRISTMAS! The day is finally here! Well it’s both a very happy and kind of bittersweet day because that means this 25 Days of Christmas Baking Challenge is OVER! I can proudly say that I’ve made over 25 different recipes, filled up two freezers, and filled the tummies of happy friend and family! Now it’s early Christmas Morning, and I just made these delectable one hour cinnamon rolls from I Heart Nap Time to wake up my family!
I’ve made a few other cinnamon roll recipes in the past, but never using yeast. These rolls are easy, super fluffy, and of course are quick because everyone is running around like crazy today!
Well off to save the gifts from being ripped apart by my cat!! 😀 Sending lots of love and cheer to you and your family!
Today was my annual work Christmas bake exchange, so I ended up doing two bakes. Was a super duper sugar overload!
I can’t even remember the last time I’ve even had a brownie so I was kind of excited to eat these chewy fudgy bites of happiness! But the brown colour is so not my thing! I wanted something colour and fun, and these fudgy Christmas tree brownies from Dinner at the Zoo caught my eye! They are a from scratch recipe (I don’t really like using boxed mixes when it’s just as easy to make your own!!)
I was already stuffed with brownie batter when I went on to bake #2 which was my bake for my exchange. I decided to make these bright green Grinch Cookies from Stress Baking because I wanted something bright and cute. Look at the little hearts! They made my heart grow three sizes!
They were a big hit! And I collected even more baked goods from the other girls at work!
