Recipe: Oreo Snowballs

Every year around the holidays, my mom and I gather up all of our favorite holiday baking recipes and get to work. Since I can remember, it has been a tradition for my mom to make her standard holiday cookies such as: peanut blossoms, peanut clusters, italian cookies, and more. As I have gotten older, I have been able to create and master my own additions to our annual baking recipes. One of my favorite recipes in particular that I...

This is certainly bringing me back to my middle school Xanga days -- which may very be the last time I gave blogging a genuine try. I'd like to think that I've gained a little more perspective, and have more interesting things to talk about, since then. I mean, that leaf picture I took up there is pretty artsy/blog-worthy, right? So, with that in mind, welcome to my blog.
