This weekend has been amazing. It started with a late afternoon pedicure Friday (with one of my favorites), and after finishing up some computer work, went into full-force relaxation with Matt. Wine, movies, TV and healthified nachos for dinner were all included. Today we are heading to see my family for a quick visit before I return to put together some late holiday and New Year’s orders.
It might sound crazy after so many hours in the kitchen, but I really miss baking for fun. I miss creating new recipes to share with you and just messing around for new product ideas or Cookie of the Month flavors. My head is already spinning with all sorts of concoctions to put together during these quieter days. There bags of candy sitting in my pantry are just dying to be baked with.
In the meantime, in case you are looking for some last minute end of the year baking inspiration, I thought I’d share with you some of the 2012 favorites.
And the 10 most popular blog posts of 2012 are…
Of course while I do adore some of the reader favorites (ahem Oreo Crusted Brownie Pie with Cream Cheese Icing), I wanted to put in my two sense on the best recipes I’ve posted this year (although limiting that to 10 is so hard)…
And finally, this post was for sure the most meaningful blog post (to me) that I’ve shared with you to date.
I hope that all of you celebrating have a wonderful Christmas. In light of recent events in Newtown, this week I’ll be counting my blessings a few extra times and telling my loved ones what they mean to me.
