4 Easy Christmas Treats

This Christmas has been one of the more joyful ones I've had in some time.  Why?  Because I've been using a two letter word more often:


"No" to stressing myself out just to bake every type of cookie I can.

"No" to worrying about a few of the decorations that haven't been placed around the house.

"No" to baking a homemade gingerbread house (Trader Joe's pre-baked one is wonderful!)

and have been saying "yes" more too:

"Yes" to slowing down and reflecting on all of God's good gifts I've already been given.

"Yes" to being okay with not doing it all.

"Yes" to Joy…Peace…and my imperfectness.

So one of the many decisions I've made is to allow myself to wait until after Christmas to post a new recipe.

Until then, here are a few treats that I will try to make later this week, or…maybe not.  After all, sometimes saying "no" to doing something means saying "yes" to sanity and self-preservation.

But if you're looking for an easy treat or two to make for *fun*?:

Gingerbread Dip:

Cranberry and Pistachio Biscotti:

Candied Orange Peel:

Chocolate Drizzled Macaroons:

Merry Christmas!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
