I love the holidays, I really love the holidays because of the time that I can bake all of the great treats that I love to eat but can’t have much of. I usually spend a lot of time baking brownies, Cookies and cake. But, because I’m a diabetic I can’t eat many of the things I make which is why I always wait for the holidays or special occasion to bake, just so I don’t eat it all! I also like to give my baking good away as gifts.
With the holiday get-togethers that everyone seems to have planned during December. I have plenty of outlet for my creative ideas. Recently I’ve made both pumpkin brownies and peppermint brownies. I bake also my brownies from scratch, but you can use a pre-mix like Duncan Hines to create the perfect chocolate brownie and just add the pumpkin or the peppermint to it to create a new twist on a classic favorite.
Both brownies were a huge success at the parties I went to. I usually brought, the brownies and a really good wine to the party. Many of my friends thought it was a strange combination to bring dessert and wine, but for me this is something that is always paired well together. Also who doesn’t like a nice glass of wine every now and then?
Besides brownies, I also love to make pies. Most of the time my family looks very forward to my apple pies though this year I didn’t get a chance to make them. It’s just been a very busy year. Though I am thinking I might have to make it for Christmas though we have plenty of cookies and cake and candy to satisfy our sweet tooth. Still the fun of baking calls to me, and I think I may just have to keep answering that call!
