If it’s one thing I love to do this time of year, it’s bake, and the people around me don’t seem to mind either! Last year, I was just starting up my YouTube channel, and I took on the ambitious task of doing The 12 Days of Treats which was a new recipe for the first twelve days of December. Given I started this in September, it was still quite an undertaking but worth it to share my favorite recipes. I knew if I committed to making this an annual thing that I would not only have to prepare some of our favorites but look for inspiration on recipes I’d wanted to try as well.
Last year, I was flipping through the Swiss Colony catalog which, for me, it is the one thing that signals the beginning of the Christmas season. I was inspired by some of their offerings as well as The Vermont Country Store which pumps you up on nostalgia. It was the longing for classic treats and tastes that inspired this year’s 12 Days of Treats. Here’s a sneak peek:
It truly has something for kids from 1 to 92! From nostalgic classics to updated versions of classics to new tasty recipes that are soon to become favorites – I am genuinely excited to share a holiday recipe with you every day beginning Friday! (December 1st) I can vouch for every single one and have a bit of a doughy middle to show for my “quality control.”
