December from the Archives

When I was going through the archives to put together this month’s post I noticed two things. December always involves a lot of sugar and a lot of quick and easy meals.

And really that pretty much sums up kitchen life for me during December and I love it. Baking and candy making is something I always enjoy and busy schedules means that quick and easy meals are a must. We do need to eat more than sugar after all.

So today I am highlighting some of my favorite recipes from from the last few years in December. I hope you find some fun and delicious ideas.
