'Tis the Season...

...for holiday baking! This year I decided to bake up a host of holiday delights for my friends and co-workers. I spent all last weekend baking, and put together holiday gift packages chock full of goodies for everyone. My husband got to take an assortment of leftovers to school with him, and this is just some of what they got to sample:

Talk about a baking marathon! I don't think I have ever spent that much time in the kitchen before, but I enjoyed it because it was a true labor of love :) So, if you are looking for ideas this holiday season, check out my next 15 posts! With German, Jewish, and Middle Eastern treats in addition to some traditional holiday classics like peppermint bark and molasses cookies, you're guaranteed to find something you can enjoy with your friends and family this holiday season!

Note: This post prefaces the next (or last) 15 posts; since these are all being updated to my blog on the same day, instead of placing this post at the bottom (or beginning) of the 15 posts, I am placing it at the end so that it will be the first thing you read when you visit my blog.
