let’s bake 30 recipes today….

You’ve got the energy right?
Me too!
I  think.

Growing up my mom started making holiday treats weeks before Christmas and would store them in shoeboxes in the freezer.
I guess I’m a few weeks behind.
And I don’t have any shoeboxes.
But I have some fantastic, easy, tried-and-true recipes for you and me!

So if you’re baking this weekend too, let’s do this thing….

Remember two years ago when I did a  Sweets and Treats Christmas countdown?

Together with some blogging friends, we shared a tasty recipe each day in December.
And there are still a few recipes I’ve been dying to try…like Maple Walnut Chocolates by Smashed Peas and Carrots….and home-baked sweet granola by Delia Creates….
Gimme, gimme. I need! I need!

And you probably need my amped-up Chocolate Dipped Gingerbread Softies.
And some Chocolate Tangerine Bars.  Mmmm.
Both are all-time faves!

So here you go….30 recipes to get you baking this week!
Seriously.  Just check out Vanessa’s SIMPLE 3 minute-3 ingredient fudge (and the spin I did on it).  Okay….

    Oh my goodness, this is such a wonderful surprise! I’m absolutely delighted to be one of your winners! Thank you so much, Dana!! I can’t wait to start sewing your adorable baby doll baskets. Here’s to a very Merry Christmas and an awesome 2015!

    Thank you Dana! I’m so excited to choose some fabrics and get started on my basket. I’m just reading through and the pattern is really well explained, I’m not an experienced quilter and I’m feeling empowered! I’ll be baking the gingerbread softies soon too 🙂

    The Gingerbread Softies were an absolute hit! I took them to an old-fashioned hay ride the other night and shared with little and big kids alike. Thanks for the recipe! Now I have to bring them again next year. 🙂
