I can’t believe Christmas in next week!!
I am a tad bit nervous to host my family at my place for the first time—well it’s the first year I’ve had my own place. Plus I am doing the cooking which shall be a blast!! I recently read an article in Body & Soul that talked about being stressed around the holidays and trying to make everything perfect and then we miss out on the true reason we even gather! So when a few cookies burn, or the cheesecake ends up cracking down the middle(fingers crossed mine doesn’t—always use a water bath!)—don’t fret, your family will still stick around, I guarantee it! Do you feel a lot of pressure around the holiday time?
Today’s post is a bit short—I have some TV/blog reading to catch up with!! No homework FOR ONCE!!
If you all decide to try these cookies, you will get endless compliments! An easy dough combined with some candied cherries to give a “jeweled” appearance will stand out at any Christmas bash—these are one of the recipes I make every year. Easy, tasty, and pretty—cheers!
