Big, magical snowflakes have been falling all day, and I have been cooped up in my kitchen baking. There is something about those snowflakes that is so nostalgic- staring out the giant window in my kitchen I can’t help but feel wrapped up in them. Christmas is two weeks away, and if I look past the workload that lies smack dab in the middle of here and there, I am dreaming all of the baking that will happen in those few days right before. Holidays seem to bring even the most unlikely into the kitchen- because something about this cozy season makes you want to whip up a batch of homemade cookies. They make the perfect gift, the perfect carry-in item, the perfect scent to fill your home.
