I don’t know about you but I am more than into the swing of the holiday season now, and something festive-themed seems to be a near daily occurrence in our household. With so many people coming and going – my own friends, friends of friends, my kid’s friends, it seems like a plate of homemade treats can be baked, put out and devoured the same day… or wrapped up for a quick, easy and always welcomed last-minute present. With so much baking to do it’s nice to add a little variation throughout the month and I’m sure you’ll be whipping up at least a couple of these fantastic sweet treats.
This is THE place to link up your recipe posts for lots of tweet, comment and Pinterest love. At the bottom of this post is the latest #recipeoftheweek ‘linky’ – use it to add any recipe posts you would like to share.
Remember, to enter #recipeoftheweek, your posts don’t have to follow a particular theme – absolutely all recipes are welcome every single week :)
