It’s finally time to reveal my cookies from the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!! Thanks to Julie and Lindsay, over 600 food bloggers from across the country (and even across oceans!) joined forces to gift each other with delicious treats this holiday season. Each of us was tasked with baking three batches of one cookie, then sending a dozen to each of our three designated matches. In return, we received three different batches of cookies from three other bloggers! Oh, the excitement. The sugar high!
Well, ladies and gents (are there any guys who read my blog? Besides maybe you, Chris), the holidays are officially upon us. In the space of a week, I’ve gone from the girl who was outraged at the onslaught of pre-Thanksgiving Christmas (get that Holly station off my XM radio!) to the girl who’s got Mariah Carey on repeat thanks to Pandora (you can’t get better than “All I Want for Christmas Is You”).
With the rapidly approaching holidays comes another installment of the Holiday Blog Hop! (You can view my last post here.) This Vanilla Cranberry Baked Oatmeal is a twist on a breakfast that’s irrevocably tied to memories of some of my closest friends–in fact, some of them are a bit jealous that there’s only little old me to eat this batch!
