Eggnog Spice Cookies

Eggnog Spice Cookies

  Eggnog is one of those love-it or hate-it things that’s pretty divided into those two categories. Some people get SO excited for the holidays because of eggnog, and others cringe at the thought of it. And while I wish I could commit to a side, I’m honestly in the middle.

Oreo Ornaments

OREO ORNAMENTS!

If it were socially acceptable (or if my family would allow it) I would be putting up Christmas decorations the day after Halloween.

Pin It   I love Valentine’s Day. Maybe ’cause it’s also my birthday…maybe. Or because I will make these cookies especially for it. Chocolate and Peppermint.
