Well, it’s the morning after one of the biggest cooking fests of the year (Christmas and Easter are close on the heels of Thanksgiving in my home).
How was your holiday? Apologies to my Canadian and other Home Ec readers, sometimes you just have to put up with my American perspective.
Did you attempt anything new? How did it turn out?
I admit it, after this year’s pre-Thanksgiving day photo shoot I totally took it easy and enjoyed dinner at my mom and stepdad’s. I brought the broccoli salad and apple pie. I nearly ate myself sick on collard greens (he uses bacon instead of smoked sausage).
Sweets for the Season launches tonight tomorrow, but I have a big, new project on my plate. So this year I am approaching it a little differently. I will be re-visiting many of the previous years’ recipes and taking new, hopefully better pictures. Look for one recipe a day, tomorrow through Christmas Eve.
If you have a request for a cookie or dessert recipe, please feel free to send it my way. Additionally, I would love to do a recipe carnival that includes your favorite cookie recipes. The deadline for that will be December 11. If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to participate and your recipe / photo will be included in the post. If you do send me your favorite recipe, make sure the narrative is your own. This is important, so I don’t accidentally infringe on any one’s copyright. Send links to posts or your recipes to Heather@home-ec101.com and be sure to put Cookie Carnival in the subject line. (This will help me not lose anyone’s entry in a deluge of spam). I’m hoping to get the carnival posted on the 15th of December.
This really is my favorite time of year.
