Let’s cook like this all year

Remember that Christmas song, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year?” Well that applies to those of us who love to cook. It’s just the best time to be in the kitchen baking cookies and holiday breads. It’s hard not to overdo it over the holidays so I do the best I can.

Sometimes I wish we should cook and bake like this all year but then… could we still wear our skinny jeans? – Jenny Jones
