November Wrap-Up

Monthly recap for November 2013.

November Wrap UpI’m not going to lie, November was a rough month for me.  Since my family was sick (and I was the sickest of them all!) it was pretty tough for me to get much blogging done.

However, the things I did post this month were a lot of fun for me.  Some of them are my new favorite recipes!

Here’s a quick recap of what happened in November, in case you missed anything.

This delicious bread disappeared in no time
flat at my house.  It tastes amazing with
a little peanut butter and honey!

My very first wordless recipe!  I showed you
how to make these delicious baked zucchini
spears with only photos.

This is another recipe I couldn’t keep my
hands off of!  These no-bake bars are one
of my new personal favorite recipes.

I made four cookies for Cookie Week this
month.  These Eggnog Cookies were delicious
and quite popular as well, quickly earning a
place on my “popular post” page.

I couldn’t let Cookie Week go by without
making something peppermint.  These minty
cream cheese cookies are filled with chocolate.

These are so beautiful, and they were a big
hit with our family at Thanksgiving.  The almond
cookies are filled with plum jelly and sprinkled
with powdered sugar.

Once my family started getting sick, I made
this easy slow cooker hot chocolate, with
peppermint and marshmallows, to soothe all
the sore throats.

This is a cookie blog, after all, so I created for
you a collection of more than 100 amazing
cookie recipes that will be perfect for the


In addition to all these fun recipes, I also contributed a recipe for Easy Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread to My Cooking Spot this month.  It barely qualifies as cornbread, it’s a lot more like cake, but it has been a big hit in the neighborhood!

I’ve been putting together this great Pinterest board called Cookie Favorites, and asked some of my blogging friends to contribute to it as well.  This is a great resource for cookie recipe ideas!  If you’re not following this board yet, you can find it here.
