Free Photo Canvas

HURRY!! There is only one day left to take advantage of the FREE 8x10 or $55 off a larger photo canvas from Canvas People! The offer ends on December 31st! All you pay is shipping!

I upgraded to an 11x14 for only $10.00, but I think it is totally going to be worth it once it arrives.

This is seriously a great deal, so take advantage of it for upcoming birthdays or other occasions!


Of course, I'll post photo's of mine when it arrives in about 10 days!!!

Holiday Yummy Goodness UPDATE!

Well, the Christmas holiday festivities have come and gone, as has all my baking!

The Honey Crinkle Cookies were a favorite and SUPER easy.

The Applesauce Cookies were good, but turned out a little too "cake-like".

The sugarplum cake is one of my personal favorite! I think this is my 3rd or 4th one for the season... so far!

The Cranberry Pecan Biscotti, well, let's just say, this was my first attempt at this recipe, and it will be my last! It didn't work out so well!

And lastly, the Banana Walnut Bread, I made a TON of this as gifts in cute little two serving size loaf pans. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the super cute presentation!

Holiday Yummy Goodness!

This holiday season my goal is to do all my holiday baking and cooking...without CHOCOLATE!! Since I get terrible migraine headaches from this little devil, I am determined to find some sweet treats sans cocoa.

Also, I'm trying to use some recipes that don't call for sugar as the sweetener, but rather use honey or almond flour or some other ingredient to add that punch of sweet.

Here's what's in store:

Banana Bread
Cranberry Pecan Biscotti
Honey Crinkle Cookies
Applesauce Cookies
Sugarplum Cake

We'll see if the chocolateless and healthier Christmas baking is a hit! Pictures to come!
