All of the hard work for the holidays is now complete. We can all take a deep breath and begin 2018. I for one, am excited to get this year going. Other than creating this blog, I’d like to go back to school and get my masters, save up to buy my own house, do a lot more traveling (to Italy!) and simply focus on bettering myself and doing what makes me happy. I like to take this time to reflect on this holiday season and express how extremely grateful I am for my loving family and friends. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support. This Christmas, I took over the cooking and baking since my mom had reconstructive surgery on her foot. Amongst everything else, I made 9 different cookies. Unfortunately, I don’t have many pictures of the appetizers I made, but I will leave you a picture of the cookies (pizzelles not pictured). What are some of the Christmas cookies you all usually make?
