Foodie Friday: Holiday Baking & Gifts For Bakers

The Holidays are here, and I have baking on my mind. The month of December takes me back to my childhood when my Mother had those wonderful tins filled with cookies like above The rum balls (we call them truffles now) seven layer bars, and every sinful treat you could think of were the magic of Christmas! My mind also goes to my two loves, "Mr. and Ms. Shop This," who both have December birthdays. So there are two special cakes to be made in my future. Time to get baking! Enjoy these yummy recipes and great gifts for bakers.
