Tis the Season...

To be busy!  Sorry for a lack of updates last week... I was called into jury duty on Monday and selected for a trial that lasted all week.  Which was also the same week I had finals for grad school and a few projects to wrap up at work.  Whew!

Fortunately, by Monday, the trial was over, grades were posted (continuing my streak of all As since I met my hubby in senior year of my undergrad), and work projects have been completed!  In other news...

I made Jen's Chocolate Peppermint Bark cookies for a Christmas cookie competition at the hubby's office and was voted 3rd place, out of about 15 entries!

Definitely add these to your holiday baking list!  I ended up making 3 more batches to include in our boxes of Christmas goodies.

I also made Jen's Lady Strawberry cake for his office Christmas party yesterday, by special request from his coworkers... I thought it ended up looking festive with the red strawberries and green bow!

Please ignore the giant baklava pans in the background... Holiday baking has truly taken over our kitchen!  Stay tuned for an easy wreath project (well, at least you can save it for next year!)

  1. Your cookies and cake look great - so festive! Now...I think you need to teach me how to make baklava. It is one of my all-time favorites but I'm scared to make it!
