What has consumed all my blogging time lately, one might ask? The response would include a mix of many of the following: my day job, holiday parties, Christmas programs, a trip to Silver Dollar City in Branson to see Christmas lights, shopping, baking, wrapping packages, cookie exchange at my home and I can’t forget to mention cooking, cleaning and stocking my kitchen for the holiday season. Eating out has been a regular routine lately and that makes me weary and very little to blog and photograph, but January is on the horizon and a possible blizzard, snow days at school and a well-stocked kitchen will provide blog posts for the future. When my evenings wind down and I’m too keyed-up to sleep, I sometimes turn to Pinterest to relax before hitting my fluffy pillow. Here are some of my recent favorite pins on my Christmas board at Pinterest.
|Let’s start with pretty and then I’ll show you
cute. These irresistible O’ Tannenbaum
Cupcakes by Better Homes and Gardens
I follow Bakerella on a regular basis. Look at these
amazing Candy Cane Christmas Trees. Too cute!
More cute to share. I saw these and thought, “Wow,
some people are so creative!” These Santa Hat Brownies
come to us via Daisy’s World blog.
I actually made these Colorful Spiral Cookies.
Are they not beautiful??
My spirals were not as precise on the design, but
they were still very colorful and tasty. I used
Christmas sprinkles (stars and trees).
I also found a great new blog to
follow when I found these cookies
on Pinterest. Sprinkle Bakes is my new found
friend! Forgot to mention…
these were the cookies I shared at
our annual cookie exchange.
If I don’t talk to you again soon, before Christmas…
Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 my friends.
I appreciate your support and hope you will continue to
follow My Kitchen Addictions in the New Year!
