Every Christmas season my waisteline makes a mad dash for Santa-like proportions, and it’s the time of year where it’s okay to splurge every now and then to enjoy the goodies that we havent had a chance to enjoy since
last christmas Thanksgiving. January is for painfully long gym sessions anyways.
Just when I thought I was done with list posts I realized that Pintrest has gone mad for last year’s Holiday Treat Roundup (go figure that my adventures in Quinoa are largely ignored). In honour of the holidays and in the spirit of giving people what they want – I’ve updated my Holiday Treats Roundup to include my favourite recipes for Christmas 2013. And, before diving into these goodies why not check out these fun tips about spending less on your christmas baking.
