Posted OnDecember 7, 2012at6:47 pmI will be making sugar cookies, haystacks, and my great grandma’s fruitcake recipe. I already made pumpkin banana bread with chocolate chips.

A new baby has forced me to curtail my usual holiday cooking, but if I have time, I’ll add some fudge, chocolate chocolate chip cookies with cherries or cranberries, and/or some gingerbread. If I feel *really* ambitious and have someone willing to help, I’ll make my grandma’s apple strudel!
