Strawberry ribbon bars, caramel chex mix, hazelnut chocolate chip, and whatever awesome recipes I see between now and Christmas.  I’m probably doing an oreo cake for Christmas dinner since my friend is coming to visit and he’s a super picky eater.

Hopefully something. My co-worker made some amazing cookies yesterday and I would love to recreate them! I always WANT to bake something, but never get around to it lol.

@Gemstone:  It’s super easy, just take a chocolate chip cookie recipe and substitute part of the flour with hazelnut flour (I also recommend upgrading the chocolate chips to a belgian milk chocolate).  It’s like nutella made a chocolate chip cookie.

I don’t plan on baking but I did see some choclate covered pretzels with peppermint pices (like bark but with the added saltiness of the pretzel) that I think I might make for people at my office.

@Gemstone:  I will probably bake the following:

1) Banana bread loaves for the in-laws

2) Pumpkin cheesecake for the co-workers (this one is ambitious so we will see… I made it once and it was a hit)

3) Chocolate chip cookies for Darling Husband (he’s got simple taste so chocolate chip cookies it is for him…)

@Gemstone:  Cheesecake is my thing! I tend to make it for all seasons/holidays just different variations…

For summer, it is berry or lemon cheesecake.

For fall/thanksgiving it is pumpkin cheesecake.

But for winter/Christmas, I tend to do white chocolate cheesecake or peppermint cheesecake! Oreo cheesecake is requested year round! πŸ™‚

I also do chocolate covered pretzels, chex mix, and cookies of some sort. The cookies change every year. I am inspired by the gingerbread men picture above. YUM
