DIY Cookie Baking Gift Set!

Today it's all about the good deals.  And to save you the trouble of black Friday shopping, I'm sharing an easy Christmas gift idea, which can be made for a great price anytime.  Like now.  And it's snowing, yes, I said snowing and cold, so I thinks it's time to start baking.
While on a cheap date to the Dollar Store, which wasn't much of a date because my husband didn't want to come in with me, I found a few things I thought would make a fun little gift.

Nurti-Ninja Christmas Cones!

I never thought I would say this, I'm a Ninja.  While attending the IFBC in Seattle in September, I was personally introduced to the Ninja.  I saw it in action and then I tasted what the action made.  It was amazing and when I was offered to give it a try for myself, I was thrilled.  I could NOT wait to make what they call "True Love in a Bowl".  I agree, it was true love. 
Today it's True Love in a Cone!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Cake!

It's Sunday, so you know what that means...I'm over at HUNGRY HAPPENINGS with something to keep you warm.  I'll give you a hint, it's ugly.  I can make fun of these sweaters, because I may have worn one.  I won't say for certain, but I have had a few fashion moments when I look back and think to myself "what was I thinking?"  So today I am going to have a little fun with this...

You know you want to.

Peppermint Christmas Invitation!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  While you may be smelling the turkey roasting, I'm smelling peppermint.  If you're even thinking about hosting a Christmas party this year, I highly recommend you get started.  In fact, you probably should have started months ago, but don't worry, with my help you can pull it off in a couple of weeks!  Starting with the PEPPERMINT Invitation!

Edible Thanksgiving Place Cards!

I always like to have a plan and part of that plan is to do what ever I can, before the Holidays.  Speaking of Holidays, Thanksgiving is going to be here before you know it.  Each year I think about making edible place cards for the table.  Each year, I end up telling everyone where to sit, that works, but it's not as fun as these...

Your guests will thank you.

And I Thank You!

Fall Leaf Cookies!

Today I'm sharing a few simple cookie ideas for Thanksgiving.  Can you believe today's post doesn't involve chocolate?  As much as I love chocolate, these cookies run a close second.  I needed something to fill my turkey platter and because the last time I cooked a whole turkey...umm, you could say I didn't know you were supposed to take something out of the turkey.  So I decided to go the safe route and make Fall Leaf Cookies to fill my turkey platter.

Whoopie Pie Pumpkins!

Today, I'm sharing my new love over at Hungry Happenings.  I love pumpkin, but I don't love pumpkin pie, in fact I don't even like it.  So every year around Thanksgiving, I try and come up with a way to make pumpkin into anything but a pie.  Today you could say I now LOVE pumpkin pie...

You'll have the best pumpkin patch around if you visit Hungry Happenings and get started!
