I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday and kicking off the holiday season this weekend. My friends and I have a tradition of going to Zoo Lights, it never fails to catapult me into full-on holiday mode. That and Beach Boys Christmas on repeat. My poor neighbors…oops!
I was brainstorming holiday content to share with you all and turned to my archives for holiday recipes and cocktail ideas. After 5 years of blogging, I’ll be honest that I don’t always remember every.single.post. So I thought I’d share some oldies but goodies: Holiday recipes and cocktails to get you into the spirit (Just assume every pun is intended) and be merry! Be sure to bookmark this page for later ; )
And don’t forget to check out what I buy at Trader Joe’s for the holidays!
Perfect Peanut Butter Blossoms: Okay it’s bragging time. Peanut butter blossoms are the best cookies I make. Between my parents and Tommy and my extended family, I probably make over 200 of these cookies every holiday season and they’re always a big hit. They’re my #1. Okay, </bragging time>
Let’s be honest, the real stars of the holiday season are the cocktails.
