Sweet and Savory Weekly Recap 12/15/12

Hello weekend! We only have this weekend and next weekend before Christmas is here. And I have not yet purchased a single Christmas present. Typical me. It’s been baking madness for me, so there is no shortage of cookies to eat. My roommates and I have been eating cookies like it’s our jobs and it’s only December 15. We love the holidays.

In unrelated baking news: we have a Christmas tree.

We even have a color palette for Christmas. We are using the same color for the tree, wreath and Christmas gift-wrapping. Yes…a Christmas color palette, (It’s white, silver and red, in case you’re curious).

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
