Christmas Cookies to the Rescue!

Posted by on December 16, 2010 at 10:29 am

One of my favorite childhood memories is filled with love, laughter, and FOOD! Cookies, to be specific…

I would be my mothers helper as she whipped up batch after batch of sugary goodness. She would set the dozens of different types of cookies out in the living room on old family silver tiers, trays, bowls, and more. It was hypnotizing to walk into the room and see all of the different cookies, colors, and smells. I never knew which one to feast my eyes (and fingers!) on. The decision was tough.

Once I moved out, we attempted to bake cookies together once again, but it seems like father time always got in the way. This year, I’m feeling a little nostalgic in the spirit of the holidays, so I’ve been on a baking spree this week. Many people have asked for the recipes, so here they are! All 26 of them!

Zucchini Bread

I LOVE zucchini bread! It’s sweet and savory nature, coupled with a soft bread is one of many comfort foods. As a child, I remember my mother making this all of the time and taking it to work as gifts for her fellow teachers. Often times, it was hard for me to keep my sticky […]

Me and Doug

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve checked in here. My life has been slightly nuts the past 4 months – lots of changes. 2009 was a year of great achievements for me. In June I moved from my social media position to a much bigger opportunity within the same company. Since June, I’ve been […]
