A great way to spend a day.

In the kitchen with two of your best friends making all kinds of holiday goodies.  Last year we had a holiday cooking day and I decided to throw it together again this year.  It is sooo nice to have some yummy good treats in the freezer for the holidays.  Entertaining or just spending a quiet holiday at home with the family the less time we women spend in the kitchen the more time we can spend with our families the better right?  But we also want to make it as special as possible so all of those special touches of homemade goodness.

We made 7 pumpkin rolls, 4 quiches,  brocolli potato soup,  cheesey bacon tomato bites,  cherry nut coffee cake and lots of pie crusts to to make pie baking much easier.  It was a great day and I got some much needed girl time.
These were named tomato, bacon cups.  After tasting the yummy little treats we decided that name just didn't do them justice so this was one of the names we came up with.

So what about you?  When is the last time you invited a friend over to enjoy a cup of coffee or even make some tasty treats?  It is therapy and good for the soul.  So give it a try.  You will make great memories and make the holidays just a little less stressful.


  1. I wish I had a kitchen to be able to do that in, mine is way too small. It looks like a great time:)

  2. I wish I had friends that enjoyed cooking and baking as much as I do. The last time I got together with a friend to bake cookies was probably 20 years ago. Gosh, now I feel really old...

  3. I love, love, love cooking and baking with friends. I just baked fresh bread with my best girlfriend a couple weeks ago. It was so much fun and so great for my spirit.

  4. Love your kitchen! Good idea re the baking; I wonder if it's too late...
