  4. Thanks for posting my Melting Snowman Smores!! There are so many yummy ideas out there… I can't wait to get back in the kitchen! :) Have a merry Christmas Jen!

  5. Thanks so much for putting my sugar cookies on your blog Jen! I'm thinking that those candy pouches are some of the cutest I've ever seen! What a darling way to give treats. I'm all about treats. I've also been craving fudge for weeks. Perhaps it's time to give in! (and we call Dutch Babies "hootnannys" I don't know why. But they ARE divine. In fact, I think we'll have them for breakfast in the morning!)

    You've been a busy girl. Remember to take a break. You deserve one! Loves!
