Happy December to you! I flipped the calendar page yesterday and felt that disbelief that December is already here. Can you believe it? We had a delightful Thanksgiving, decorated our home over the long break and are ready to nestle in to the holiday season. 

We start making our lists for Christmas cookies way in advance as everyone chooses their favorites. I love Sally’s Baking Addiction and am having so much fun with her 2022 Cookie Palooza posts. She has been posting a new cookie recipe every day and I am here for it.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you will have seen my love for a simmer pot to add a subtle seasonal scent to your home. I love this gift idea from Delia Creates. It would be perfect for a teacher, neighbor, secret Santa sort of gift. How cute is that house?

You can’t go wrong with a charcuterie board. I loved seeing all the ways to fancy up your plain old board with these styling techniques from Food52.
