Where's the treats?

I really need to apologize. I have been so lazy this holiday season. I have done very little baking...I mean very little. It' s really not like me. Usually this time of year my counter tops are buried in addictive sugary treats. Everything from homemade marshmallows, cookies of every kind, chocolates, pies, cinnamon rolls, you name it I'm baking it. And I usually love sharing all the goodness with friends and neighbors. But not this year. This year I'm pregnant and my pregnancy cravings include salad, fruit, lemonade and chips. Last night while my husband was chowing down on some of the yummy neighbor gifts we've received, I was making myself a salad with lots of ranch dressing. I did bring myself to make some chocolate covered pretzels for my husbands office yesterday, but had several dry-heave moments in the process. How weird is that? What's even more depressing...when the holidays are over, I'll still weigh more than I did in November.

The sad news for all my followers...I probably won't be posting any yummy treat recipe recipes for you. But I wanted to make it up to you, so I decided to refer you to some of my fellow food bloggers that have been baking up a storm this season. There are some amazing ideas and recipes out there...

Check out Our Best Bites! This is one of my favorite blogs. They have the best recipes and will not disappoint with holiday treats. I highly recommend the homemade marshmallows. If you've never had them, they are a must. I hate marshmallows...but homemade marshmallows are unlike anything you've ever eaten. Melt in your mouth goodness!

Also check out Grandma's Desserts. She has so many amazing goodie recipes. I've tried several. A particular favorite was the homemade Kit Kat Bars. They really tasted a lot more like a twix with peanut butter, but it doesn't matter...they were delicious!

Another favorite site is Sugar Plum. Great recipes only enhanced by the photography. The pictures themselves are enough to make your mouth water.

So I hope you'll all forgive me for my lack of baking. I promise next year things will be different!

Aww thanks! That's sweet of you to say.
Don't feel badly at all; this is such a busy time of the year. I'm really struggling trying to get everything done. No worries. :)
