Yes, It's Really Me.

Gosh, I haven't done this in so long it feels a little foreign.
It's been over two months, by my count, and even before that it was pretty sparse.
Well, I have a New Year's resolution about this blog, we'll just see how it goes.

So, I guess- hello?
It's good to be back.

And might I just say, I hope you all had the most wonderful Christmas. I know I did!
If you don't celebrate Christmas, well, I hope you enjoyed your holiday time (if you have one) or just had some fun during your school/work break!

One of my favorite holiday traditions is baking cookies, and even though the 25th is over, I'm still loving our homemade sweets.

We just have plates of the stuff!
Chocolate Andes Mint cookies, Chocolate Chip cookies, Mexican Wedding cookies (my mom's project), Peanut Butter Kiss cookies...
I think I'm more in danger of the Christmas 15 than the Freshman 15!

They're just so beautiful and soft and yummy... who can resist?
My flab could sure vouch for me that I can't resist at all!

My absolute favorite of all is the Chocolate Andes Mint cookies, though.
They come out of the oven all piping hot, and are each quickly covered with an Andes mint that melts until it can be spread in creamy goodness all over the cookie.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it...

Oh, and yes, we keep our tree.
Until mid-January. Or late January.
Or really, whenever we can bother to do it!

So glad you're back; your blog is one of my favorites! I'd be lying if I said my mouth wasn't watering looking at all of those gorgeous baked goods. Yum.
