Bake, Sew, Craft Along

Today I’m over at A Southern Fairy Tale sharing a super fun (and easy) hot cocoa gift set! Rachel along a few other ladies have teamed up to bring you thirty days of holiday baking, thirty days of holiday sewing, and thirty days of holiday crafting (link to the other ladies at the bottom of the post…). It’s a really fun group of who are working with an even larger group of bloggers to share some of the cutest holiday inspiration on the web.

I signed up to be part of the baking/food gift team and am so glad I did!


Here’s a little sneak peak at what I’m sharing and here is where you get the details, recipe, and gift-giving instructions. Enjoy!

I love making Russian Tea Cake Cookies! I’m itching to make them already 🙂 In. love. with the blog!

cookies for the family to enjoy.

I love baking, but when it comes to eating? Green bean casserole – the old fashioned one with canned soup and onions – is a BIG deal to me 🙂

For Thanksgiving I love making sweet potato casserole, for Christmas I love making cranberry upside down cake.

I’m using this idea, too! I’m adding the Snowman Soup poem with it 🙂
