Holiday Treats

Now that I'm not living at home, there's truly only two times a year that I bake: Thanksgiving and Christmas. The rest of the year, I'm sworn to a life of laziness, a life of not wanting to dish out the money for ingredients. It's not even a life of boxed mixes. I'm just too darn lazy to make anything. Luckily, it's time to tis the season of holiday baking and fill our stomachs with all of the gingerbread and peppermint we can handle.

Who knows what recipe I'll decide to give a try this year. All I know is that I'm going to be neck deep in a my holiday Pinterest board by the end of next week and I'm going to embrace it fully. These are some of the preliminary ideas for Francesca's Bi-Annual Bake-off (With Herself and Only Herself).
