“It’s the holiday season…may the calendar keep bringing Happy Holidays to you…”
~ Andy Williams, Happy Holiday
Can you believe it’s that time of year again? Thanksgiving is exactly 5 days away, Christmas is almost 5 weeks away, and there’s only a little over a month until the New Year! Is it just me, or does it feel like someone took the “remote control” of Life and pressed fast forward on the first 11 months of the 2015-year?
Regardless, I will still welcome December with a wink and a smile along with a very out of tune rendition of Andy Williams’ holiday classic “Happy Holiday.” This, along with some holiday baking, is the only proper way to make the transition into the Christmas season a smooth one.
To get yourself in the holiday spirit, I recommend trying this very easy and very fun recipe for gingerbread cookies courtesy of RealSimple.com. You could cut them into whatever shape you prefer, but I will be showing you the how-to’s of this recipe using gingerbread men cookie cutters. The recipe for vanilla royal icing is also included courtesy of FoodNetwork.com. Happy Cooking!
