The Best Christmas Cookie Recipes:

  • Butter Dream Cookies have been a holiday favorite in my family for over 40 years.
  • Chocolate Mint Kiss Crinkles incorporate a Hershey’s Kiss into the middle of each cookie. They are a festive and delicious cookie recipe for the holidays!
  • I’ve been making this easy recipe for Holly Cookies for many years!  Everyone loves them!
  • Chocolate Kiss Peanut Butter Blossoms have been our family’s all-time favorite Christmas cookie recipe for decades!
  • What could be better than a chocolate cookie with a puddle of caramel tucked into the middle? Nothing. Chocolate Turtle Cookies are delicious!
  • Crunchy Nutmeg Sugar Cookies are all wonderfully crackled with plenty of spice to give them the perfect dose of holiday flavor.
  • If you’re wanting something fun and different for the holidays this year, then look no further!  These Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies are just bursting with bright wintry flavor.
  • These Chocolate Mint Wafers are the perfect holiday treat!  They look so pretty edged with red and green nonpareils, and they would make a fabulous, luxury addition to your holiday cookie platters.

What I’m watching and reading:

  • I started watching Dead to Me (the final season) on Netflix. It’s okay so far. Also, I wanted to tell you about a holiday movie we saw last year. It’s called, A Clüsterfünke Christmas and you can watch it on Comedy Central or Apple TV +. It’s a cute movie that pokes fun at the Hallmark-style holiday movies. It’s a comedy.
  • My sister Susie ( has a couple of books to recommend: Now is Not the Time to Panic by Kevin Wilson (reviewed on Instagram) and Someday Maybe by Onyi Nwabineli (reviewed on Instagram). If you need a book to read, check out these reviews and pick up a new book!

Must Make Recipes

Fun Recipes I’ve spotted on the internet this week:

personal updates

Here’s what’s going on in my life:

  • I hosted Thanksgiving, and there were 11 of us! Since I was the one who was doing all the cooking, I ordered a turkey from Whole Foods, and then I made all of the sides and desserts myself. I just didn’t want to have to worry about the turkey when I had so much to do. It was fabulous.
  • My son Brooks ( was home for Thanksgiving. It seems a little sad for me since this is the final Thanksgiving he’ll be coming home as a college student. Next year, he’ll be out in the working world, and vacation days to spend with Mom and Dad will be limited. I’m happy for him, but sad that he won’t be able to be around as much.
