Goodbye turkey and all the trimmings… hello cookies, candy and homemade food gifts. Although the stores seem to usher in the Christmas holiday season earlier and earlier every year, for me it officially begins the weekend after Thanksgiving. Suddenly, houses sparkle with lights, wreaths adorn doorways, Christmas music is on repeat, and I begin to think about all of the goodies I want to bake in the coming weeks. My list is growing, and while I work on which recipes make the short list for this holiday season, I want to share with you a collection of my holiday favorites that are already here on the site. There are cookies, candy, quick breads, and much more. Enjoy browsing, and keep an eye out for all the new recipes that will be coming your way this month!
