Happy Holiday Baking!

Heather —  December 19, 2010

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. It is the Season for baking and cookie making and treating!! I hope you are having fun as you plan and prepare all your Holiday treats. I, personally, really enjoy trying out new recipes and surprising my family with unexpected treats. The cake above was our Absolutely fabulous Thanksgiving Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Cake…and it was even more special because I did not make it!  My son’s girlfriend brought this for us and it was an unexpected and delicious dessert. (Thank you again, A!)

I think it is wonderful that she is such a good baker–at such a young age. I was very impressed. Anyway, what brought this up was that Blogspark sent me a Bake Your Holidays Merry gift pack, along with info about a new baking site with some great ideas for figuring out your favorite traditions for baking…and sharing!  I am enjoying their ideas–especially the little coconut snowmen!

So, here’s the details:

BakeYourHolidayMerry“This year, why not start a new tradition? With a little help from Betty Crocker, GladWare® and the Safeway Family of Stores, you can keep your loved ones’ hearts and homes filled with holiday spirit and homemade goodness of Betty Crocker. Whip up a plate full of cookies using a recipe from BakeSweetMemories.com and host a cookie exchange. What better way to escape the hustle and bustle of the holiday season than inviting your friends and family over for a night of swapping cookies, recipes, and memories?
