And so it begins...Part 2

Thanksgiving is behind us, and for most of us that means...IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME! With only 23 days left before the big guy stuffs his big belly down the chimney, and even less time before we have to package up those cookies and treats for loved ones far, far away, it's time to start prepping for the holiday baking season!

It really is my most favorite time of the year. This week, I will bring out the decorations and create a few different Christmas Music stations on Pandora to keep me in the spirit. I'll be wearing my jingle bell earrings and santa hat to work, but most importantly I will be getting together my lists and recipes for my favorite holiday treats, as well as try out some new recipes to share.

So I invite you all to don that tacky sweater, and head out to your local dollar store, and stock up on cello bags, trays, baskets and gift tags, to get the best bang out of your buck when it comes to home baked gift giving this year!

This year at the Dollar Tree I scored 25 packs of Cello Bags for $1 a piece. I am foregoing baskets and tins this year, and opted for the cute Christmas trays instead. Yep, $1 a piece! A few packs of Christmas themed Zipper bags, and a couple of packs of gift tags and this girl is DONE with her Christmas shopping!

You see, my entire family has decided to give up presents this year, except for the little children, of course. So instead of stressing out about what useless thing-a-ma-jig to get for cousin so and so, I can concentrate on pumping out the sugary goodness!
