December 2, 2011
Ok people, Its December. Time for family, gifts, & most of all COOKIES. I like to cook but I love to bake. (not get baked) This time of year I bake cookies as gifts or just do cookie swaps. So I figured as I watch 25 days of Christmas (on ABCfamily) I'll bake 25 different cookies & goodies.
Plus this gets me ready for my awesome new webisodes "Pots, Pans, & Pro Wrestling"
Its a cooking show that I interview Pro wrestlers and we make their favorite dish.
Keep checking back everyday to see what I have made. I'll have pictures & of course the recipes. Some our recipes from scratch & others I semi-homemade with my little twist. Hope you like it and even try them out for yourselves. Enjoy!
