This wonderful holiday is all about baking and just enjoying the yummy goodness that goes along with it. So we thought every week, we would try to give you a fun recipe or two and maybe throw in some craft ideas to do with your children. Believe us, it will not be complicated. We embrace simple and kid-friendly projects. Have fun and happy baking!
You can give this as a gift in a festive container or leave our for Santa’s helpers
