  1. Can I start the 2 weeks over again?? I want to make all of these! Those pecan pie bars look sinfully rich and decadent!

  2. Well, I’m definitely part of the spandex couture elite this year although, I must say, it’s been quite worth it. Your roundup of recipes is just lovely — and tough to decide on a favorite (always a very good sign!).

  3. This is great…thanks for sharing! Ironically, I was just thinking this morning that my habit of Christmas cookies for breakfast needs to come to an end shortly.

  4. thanks for posting this, Kelly :) it’ll help me decide what to bake to bring to my boyfriend’s family’s house for Christmas next week :)
