Hooray for Holidays in the kitchen!

YES! It’s time to bust out the peppermint extract, obsess over which cupcake liners to use, and make up the cutest, sweetest most delectable boxes of holiday treats to give to friends, family and neighbors!

If only I could find outfits as glorious as these, I’d be PERFECT.

Now I begin the tedious task of deciding what to make. Cookies, candies, breads or cake? Actually I’m really trying to find excuses to make them all. I love the holidays!

Waiting for Fall

While I wistfully wait for autumn to arrive here in Southern California (Well, at least we stayed within the 80s today, so I guess we’re getting closer …), I started thinking about pumpkin treats. I refuse to order a pumpkin latte until I can go outside wearing a cardigan, and I just can’t enjoy a pumpkin muffin along with my tall glass of lemonade I’m still drinking to beat the heat. So, just for fun (and because I’m taunting you, Mother Nature) — won’t you please share what your most favorite delicious Fall pumpkin-y indulgence is? Come on, who doesn’t like a poll? Thanks for playing. 🙂

Four-Eyed Girlie wants to know!

So — get ready for the most important question anyone has asked you all day. Are you ready? Here’s the scenario:

Say you were to go to a party, and say there were these gorgeous, meticulously designed favor bags waiting on a table. Now, say inside of one of these gorgeous, meticulously designed favor bags there was one big, perfectly baked, homemade cookie. You know — straight-up bakery style, all soft and chewy. You look at the bag again, and you notice that YOUR NAME happens to be perfectly printed right on the outside of the bag.

So now of course, you immediately pick up that bag. Come on, your name is on it! Now, you look inside … What type of cookie is inside that bag?!?

HELP! I really need to know your answer! Please vote in the poll below:
