Simply Delicious Holidays

molassescookiesWell, here we are!  December has arrived.  And, surely with it a mixture of emotions.

This time of year is a flurry of activity.  While we all have good intentions, it is easy to get overwhelmed by all we want to do.

Remember to keep it simple.

Think about what’s MOST important for you during the holidays.  If you need to, make a list. Go through it carefully and mark what needs to be done.  Then go through and mark what would be nice to get done if you have the time.  Spare yourself the extra stress and spend more time with your family.

With that in mind, why not bake some simple and delicious cookies with your kids?

This is a wonderful recipe you can use throughout the holidays!   It’s very easy and fun for the kids..
