Baking for friends...

My holiday tradition of baking cookies {a secret family recipe} for my friends is keeping me busy today!

144 cookies to be exact! I'm in the "flurry" of all of the baking & packaging & wrapping as I type. ...and I finally mailed my Christmas cards today! phew...just in time.

Next on the list...

Homemade Marshmallows! Thanks to my new candy thermometer, (shipped overnight by my Mama who wanted to make sure they turn out just right) I will be able to "perfect" the soft fluffy goodness that will melt into our coco this Christmas.

Those look great! I love making marshmallows. They taste SOOO good in cocoa--nothing rubbery and plasticky like store bought.

Those marshmallows are so pretty! Are they difficult to make? I am a bit scared of the candy-making... Good luck!!!
