Christmas Party

The bake-a-thon was a success.

I made peppermint bark:

Mama Peas Vegan Balls

These turned out very well. I need to take them out about a minute earlier. They taste like a molten Reese's in cookie form!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip with Coconut

Molasses-ginger cookies I'd made before.

I also made baba ghanoush and buffalo chicken dip. The chicken dip is super easy and everyone raved about it.
8oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing
4 oz monterey jack cheese, shredded
4 T hot sauce
1 can diced chicken
Serve with tortilla chips, celery and carrot sticks.

Here's our little tree. I made gift bags for everyone to take home. Lots of cookies needed to be given away!

And the table.

Minus the dips.

Sweets all lined up

People came with homemade cookies and morning glory muffins. A good time was had by all.

Jake and I gave each other Rock Band 3 and upgrades for Christmas, so we spent the evening with friends trying out the new keyboard and characters.

We leave for Minnesota tomorrow. MSP is expecting a snow storm with 6-9 inches, so here's hoping we actually make it!


  1. Your tree is so cute! Safe travels!

  2. Awwwwwwwee - what a sweet little, frail tree :-)
