It’s Time for Holiday Baking

Are you ready to begin your Holiday baking? This is a busy season for baking Christmas cookies, pies, candies, and cakes. I’m almost ready to begin.

CBM-Icing Drip

Closer to Christmas I will make my famous red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.

CBM - Peaked Icing

Well, it’s famous with family, friends, and neighbors, anyway.



The first thing I will make is my cookie dough for my favorite sugar cookies.

CBM - Iced Cookies

Then there is always pecan pie.

I can feel my arteries clogging up already. We really do try to maintain a healthy lifestyle the rest of the year, but at Christmastime, well, you know how it is. I have  tweaked these recipes to make them less unhealthy, while maintaining the texture and flavor. As I always say, everything in moderation, so enjoy the special holiday meals and parties, and eat healthfully in between parties.  Hello, New Year’s Resolutions!
