Hello rock star.

It’s a cold, wet, over-cast December morning but I know that I know that I know that gray skies are going to clear up….

….and I am so happy you’re here.


I mean….the 12 Days of Christmas were fun and all….but today is December 13….

….and it’s time to party. :)

We have made a paint stick Christmas tree and discussed the best ideas for handmade gifts and discussed Pottery Barn and taken a tour of the farmhouse.

And now it’s time to share some of the best treats of the holiday season.

But enough about shimmer pops and 12 days…..

….I can’t wait to see your recipes!

I can’t wait to bake and broil and saute and cook and grill every last one of them.

And I know everyone will want to see them, too… I’m going to spend the day pinning and facebooking and tweeting some of your links and your recipes.

If you want to follow along….you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest.

    Oh sweet friend - Popping over to your site this time of year is like Walking through my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies (I'm a tad addicted this year.) Thanks for letting us share and pssssst....we need to talk Becoming Conf. again. ;) xoxox

    KariAnne, I love the recipe links, so much fun! I've yet to try yorkshire pudding, I've heard it's very good! I don't have a blog so i'm not sure how you add a recipe. Looking forward to more yumminess! Christine

    Hello Karianne! Hope you are doing well and enjoying a beautiful Christmas season! I'm delighted to get to share the two most revered holiday recipes in our household. No matter what else we do or don't do, we have to make two kinds of fudge each year. I'm so proud that my fudge recipe is actually Mamie Eisenhower's fudge recipe. Ike has long been a hero of mine--even more so after my family and I visited Normandy this past summer. My recipe is from an old Kansas cookbook that says "Mamie made this fudge to woo Ike." I love it! And my mom created a peanut butter version of the same fudge, so that recipe is special, too. Thank you for giving me a place to share the recipes! And merry, merry Christmas to you and yours. :)

    {Whew!! pant! pant!} I'm sorry I'm late for the party -- I've been gone all day visiting the kids and grandkids. Wow!! there are lots of goodies here. It would be tough selecting one or two or three. If I indulged in all that I wanted I'd be doing penance until next year :-( . But, boy oh boy, it would be worth it. Perhaps instead of driving south for the winter my honey could be the sag wagon and follow me as I run there instead. Thank you KariAnne for hosting one heck of a party!! Oh darn! I forgot to bring a hostess gift. Shame on me -- I'll have to think up something for a later date. :-)

    Hi KariAnne - I decked my halls, now I am in the kitchen and looking for new ideas on what you serve my guests over the next few weeks. Perfect timing for a recipe link up :-) Lots of new recipes for me check out and try. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and very happy 2015! My best- Diane
