right now...

It's very, very cold and were expecting a big dumping of snow tomorrow and well, I'm excited.

Did you all think I disappeared? I know, I've been gone for just a little bit, but I finally had time to fit in a post even though small it maybe, but I would like nothing more then to relax and watch christmas movies just now with a big cup of piping hot green tea.
I've had just the busiest week. It's been a non-stop baking marathon at my house. I've done nothing more then bake sugar cookies, brownies, truffles, lemon bars, coconut chocolate butterscotch bars, shortbread bars, marshmallows, lolli-pop brownies, nut chocolate chip cookies, choc peppermint bark. Phew! Then well.... yep you guessed it, more cookies! There could be more, but I feel I may have forgot, but you get the idea right?
Before Christmas falls, I will post a little delight I came up with this weekend. Salted brownie truffles anyone?

So are all of you prepared for the holidays? I feel my house might be lacking in the spirt, as for its a little more messy then merry at the moment.

I love it! What a clever idea putting ear muffs on the cookie. I would love to be in your kitchen with all of those scrumptious desserts in the works. I'm especially looking forward to reading about the salted brownie truffle!

Messy than merry - that makes two of us :-)

I love salted anything...especially if there's chocolate involved so looking forward to the brownie truffles.

Love the turqouise earmuffs on that cookie....

Merry Christmas :)

Oh, we have snow here too, though surely not as much as in Canada. I'm sure everything you're making will be awesome and I can't wait to see your truffles! Hmm, can't say I'm exactly prepared for Christmas - there's still all the food shopping, baking and wrapping to do but it's a nice kind of work. Hope you get a little time to yourself to relax!

Salted brownie truffles sound deadly and delicious! I know what you mean about the mess left after baking. Baking is fun but I really can't stand the pile of bowls and measuring cups left behind. If only I could enlist one of my cats to wash dishes. :)

Your snowman cookie is adorable!

Really cute - especially the earmuffs :)

I'm never ready for the holidays...i'm always behind on the decorating and gift shopping, but making cookies is always the priority!

Happy Holidays :)
