Holiday Cookies and Candies

I haven’t had the time in the last two years to post many new recipes. My job as an elementary school teacher and my second job as a mom of two makes it pretty tough to carve our the time to create and test new recipes.  We are pretty much just eating a lot of tacos and spaghetti.

My favorite thing about having a food blog is that I have this giant archive of all of our favorite family recipes that I can go back to and search and revisit. Even if I don’t post anything new, I still use it all the time to make our favorite dishes.  At this time of year I use it for all of our favorite holiday treats.  Here is a list of my best cookies and candies for you and your family to enjoy!  Merry Christmas!

I am a mother of two boys, a wife, a teacher, and an avid home cook. These recipes are written, tested and created or adapted by me in my home kitchen. All photos were taken by me with my Canon Digital Rebel XT. No filters or Photoshop, usually natural light on my kitchen table. My motto is, if I can do it, you can do it!
