Baked goods craziness

This is actually the first year I've made and decorated gingerbread and I LOVE it! My favorites were the "James Bond" gingerbread men (with the bow ties, pictured above) and also the ones I made with winter scarves. My favorite of John's was his smiling star from the Mario Brothers games (complete with the song and added dancing).

I think John is making the dough for our third batch of gingerbread cookies tonight, and this is after making fudge (chocolate and peanut butter), truffles, no-bakes, Stolen (German bread), peppermint bark and cranberry chip cookies over the weekend! The peppermint bark and cranberry cookies were all me, but the rest? All John. What can I say? He's a total baking rock star (and I am a total baking rock star groupie). He even came to my rescue last night when I got tired of decorating the cookies to take to my office party.

Thankfully, we've managed to give MOST of the baked goods away...but there's still enough here to keep munching and munching and munching. At this point, I am totally sick of gingerbread cookies...but that still leaves about 26 other sweets to get sick of ;)

So, you tempt me with all the things you've been cooking but post no recipes? I want all the fudge ones!! And, the gingerbread cookies turned out awesome! I'm going to do them with my kids next week (we've already done a few houses though). Merry Christmas!!! Wish I was your neighbor!!!

Yep, it's hard to eat actual, real food when there's so much chocolate/cookies/etc. around ;)

I wish you were my neighbor Christina! In addition to that being totally awesome, I'd definitely be handing off some of these goodies to you ;)
