Did you have a fun weekend? I sure did! I baked gingerbread cookies, watched Christmas movies on Netflix, met some beloved friends, and spend time with the love of my life. The perfect winter-y weekend if you ask me. I love those weekends when it gets cold, and all you want to do is snuggle under the covers.I also love baking this, time of the year. I make sure I fill the house with home made cookies or cake, and enough alcohol. That way, when ever guests come over I always have something to offer, and I don’t have to think too hard about it. Spiced cookies have been my last month go-to recipe, and December is no different. Gingerbread cookies are the perfect cookie for this season festive, and sweet. Another great thing about gingerbread cookies is you can make the cutest cookies, if you have the right cookie cutters.With Hanuka and Christmas around the corner, baking seems to be one of the best leisure time activities. I have so many bake goods I want to bake and photograph, and so little time till the holidays. Hope to mange it all. What what are your plans for the holidays? Are you spending the holidays with family? Or maybe your going somewhere exotic and warm? What ever your plans are, I wish you happy, and peaceful holidays.
