Cookies, Cookies and Veggies?



The holidays bring cheer, celebrations, and cookies, cookies and more cookies.




It's not January 1st yet so we can still look at cookies without feeling longing or overwhelming guilt.


Prior to Christmas, I went to a great cookie exchange at the same house where one was held last year. It was fabulous.


 The hostess was gracious and generous beyond belief.




She even gave each guest a Christmas tree-shaped cookie cutter, filled with fudge, wrapped in lovely paper and tied with  a ribbon! The favors were so adorable!




She provided tin tubs for cookie collection, too. Besides cookies, there were lots of other goodies like fudge and frosted pretzels!




After all these fabulous cookies, this is what we need to start concentrating on:



HAVE YOU EVER ATTENDED A COOKIE EXCHANGE AT CHRISTMAS TIME?

Were those wedding cookies? Did you make all those? I know you must have had the great Christmas ever!

Looks like your hostess went all out just like my girlfriend, Melissa! We are still eating cookies over here. And toffee. And cakepops. I'm just about all sugared out.

Did you know you won a giveaway over at Olga's Home and Garden a month ago? I just saw her post.

Have a wonderful day! Tammy

Cookie guilt is starting to set in, and those veggies are looking tempting. Oh what the heck, there are a few cookies left and a few days left in the year. I'll nibble right up to the end.
