We are catching our breath after a whirlwind few weeks of Christmas celebrations. We definitely had a wonderful time though and I hope that you all did too!
I know I was a little remiss in my usual posting of Christmas cookie recipes this year. You know what counts as a major fail when you are a food blogger? Packaging up cookies and candies to give away without first making sure you got pictures of each item. I was definitely frustrated when I realized that the 4 other recipes I was so excited to share were never photographed.
Aside from not being able to share those, my Christmas baking experience this year was incredible! My Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Oven made such a huge difference.
I loved being able to have different types of cookies baking at the same time and at different temperatures. Plus, having 4 cookie sheets going at one time really cut down on the overall time needed to get everything done. I don’t know if I could ever bake cookies again without the double ovens. I love them!
So, now 2011 is coming to a close, which personally, I can hardly believe. It’s been a fantastic year and I have a feeling 2012 will be even better! We’ve had quite a few changes, including some major changes in the kitchen and my cooking methods and habits. I’ve held off on going into details, but I plan to change all that soon.
In the meantime, I’m getting ready to put together a round-up of our favorite recipes from 2011. If there are any that you’ve tried and really loved, please let me know!
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
