Christmas Kitchen Fun

Don’t forget about my One Yard Wonders book giveaway—here’s the link if you want to get your name entered into the drawing. The deadline is Thursday night and the winner will be announced on Friday.

Christmas goodies are in the works at my house. So far, I have the divinity and peanut brittle made for my mother-in-law who requests these treats each year.

I packaged them in decorative boxes found in the baking section at Jo-Ann’s (Michael’s also stocks such things). The recipes I used are as follows.

Today I’m making Cinnamon Toast Pecans and Pretzel Logs (dipped in chocolate and colorful sprinkles). The pecans are going to be a hostess gift and the pretzel logs are going to be my neighbor gifts this year.

Oooh Yum Junie Moon! Peanut Brittle is my absolute favorite -- I'm lucky 'cause my MIL makes me some every year -- she uses a microwave recipe like you do!

Great minds think alike! We're making mint chocolate snow-top cookies and mini rum cakes for our gifts this year - I am a firm believer in the concept of "Food = Love"!! ;)

Thank you for the wonderful recipes! I will have to be a busy bee when I go back home as I have all my decorating and baking to do.

Busy times ahead! :-)

lucky mother-in-law! I haven't made peanut brittle in years -- I may just 'break the mold' and make some this year. I always do noel cookies, shortbread, and soft ginger cookies at Christmas. I think I'll try your recipe for brittle.
So glad to have you back.
