A few changes to the treats next week.

Macaroons and marshmallow cookies are being replaced with chocolate fudge and almond joys.

I have planned everything out and as long as I have the motivation to do all of these things, there should be a ton of delicious things to eat at my house next week.

I need to spend more time studying and drawing rather than scheming for next week.

That is all.

Ahoy Mateys (Future Plans)

I think I must start with an apology. It looks like my last post was in August...bad Sarah.

I have been cooking and baking, but I haven't been taking pictures or remembering to post.

Here it comes though.

The big promise.

I have been wanting to do the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies/Treats for a while now, but with this crazy school schedule, it never happens. I'm going to make it happen. The 12 Days of Christmas Treats will be crammed into 3 days of glorious baking and cooking. Some of the recipes are really simple, while others are a bit more challenging.

The treats are, as follows:

Rice Krispie Treats (part 2 as we have a pan in the house right now)
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Peppermint Patties
Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
Brownie Oreos
Mexican Wedding Cookies
Marshmallow Cookies
Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Bark
Chocolate Crackle Cookies
Chocolate Mint Cookies

I plan on dividing them up between at least 4 groups of people. The VA, the Dean's Office, the Lyons Farm, the Rowse House and I'll freeze some for our excursion north for New Year's.

I'm only 75% sure that this will actually get done. 12 recipes is a lot especially when I've only actually made 3 of them before. I guess that's the challenge though!
