Whew! Another Christmas has come and gone!

This Christmas (especially) felt like a month-long event. We had exactly 19 days between leaving Pittsburgh, where we celebrated Thanksgiving with my family, and returning to it to celebrate Christmas a week early!

That alone made for a busy few weeks, but add in holiday parties and other events…and I feel like I’ve cooked up a storm!

Most of the recipes I made this year were tried-and-true recipes…I had trouble finding anything that struck my fancy enough to branch out. Here’s a re-cap of what I created in the month of December. 🙂
