It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Good morning and happy Sunday foodie friends!

It’s that wonderful, crazy, busy, fun filled time of the year for all of us. Today around the kitchen table we can celebrate a LOT- first weekend of December, first Sunday of Advent, first day of Hanukkah, and the start of all those fun town events with parades, trees lightings, and Santa arrivals!

Yesterday I had a great time in Haymarket as I got the chance to meet, greet, and feed so many of you who braved the rain and cold to stop by the Holiday event! A merry time was had by all. If you missed me yesterday… you have another chance to stop by the kitchen next Saturday, December 8th in Old Town Manassas. I can make your gift shopping a little easier that day! I’ll have food gifts packaged and ready to share around your kitchen table or, drop off to a friend or neighbor. Hope to see you next weekend. A friendly reminder to bundle up if you visit.. baby it will be COLD outside!

The holidays aren’t the only thing happening in the kitchen this month. Birthdays are also on the calendar! I did my first December birthday cake this weekend and I will have a few more cakes to share over the next few weeks. Pictured here is a fun birthday/hockey team party cupcake-cake. Thanks, Traci, for the order!


Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE hockey so this order was so much fun for me! I like the idea of celebrating as team, and this Piedmont Predator team knows how to celebrate! Not only did the team enjoy cupcakes, but they decorated their own Stanley Cup sugar cookies. Yes, I have a cookie cutter for that, lol!

So much fun around the kitchen table this month. Thanks for following along. It’s off to spend some time in the kitchen now.. so enjoy your week, and take a few minutes to enjoy time around YOUR kitchen table during this busy month.

Love and blessings from my kitchen to yours.
