Goodbye, 2011...

I have not been blogging much lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been baking! Here is a quick update on my recent culinary adventures!

Even though John and I spent Thanksgiving this year in Las Vegas, I still had to make a batch of the infamous pumpkin cookies.
Our close friends hosted an early Christmas/White Elephant dinner party, and I brought the mashed potatoes and pecan pie:
John's coworker hosted an hors d'oeuvres party, so I brought this amazing concoction called CRESCENT WRAPPED BRIE. I am making this again tonight for New Year's. Perfect with this raspberry chipotle sauce a friend suggested to me! 
And these are fairly traditional peanut butter blossoms, but Bakerella gave me the idea to use dark chocolate Kisses. They were so much more delicious this way!

Our 2011 Christmas postcard! 
I have a lot more to share, but I don't want to waste it all on this quick recap post. 2011 was a rough year for a lot of people, but I have the highest of hopes for 2012. 

Have a safe and happy New Year, and remember:

"There is no love sincerer than the love of food."
---George Bernard Shaw
