I just got a recipe for sour cream sugar cookies that I'm hoping to make tonight!

CrazyChickieMama... I would gladly come help you if we were closer! Peanut butter balls is one of my all time favs but I have never made them! Do you use parafin wax in yours?

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOOOOO  HOOOO! What a ride!"

so far i've made 6 types of cookies for little cookie boxes for the neighbors, mailman etc.  and i actually made a FRUITCAKE!!!  i'm trinidadian so my grandmother makes something called "black cake"; it's a dark, dense fruitcake that i usually don't enjoy sad (it's intense!).   i decided maybe i'd like american fruitcake better (can you imagine lol) so i have it soaking in brandy with my fingers crossed. 

i have yet to make my fave pound cake and fresh rolls to eat with our christmas ham smile  i'll get to those tomorrow!

I made these Rudolph Cake Pops for my girls' class parties yesterday. The kids loved them!

OK, I started this morning and now I'm finished except for rolling out, cutting out and baking the gingerbread men.  This is what is finished and, yes, I'm bragging.smile

I've made peanut butter fudge. 

I wish I felt up to cooking more.  I bought the oil to make rock candy.  And Church window cookies sound good. 

Maybe after Rhiannon is born and my mom comes down I can convince her to cook some.  5 days till her due date.
