Just looking at the list above, I'm thinking Magic Christmas Bars, Red Velvet Brownie Cookies, Snickercake, and Peppermint Fudgy Brownie Cookies are all sounding wonderful. Let me round up my ingredients and start baking! I need to pick up a few gift containers so I can hand out cookies to friends and coworkers in the next few days.

baking is fun

I like cooking and baking

I love the idea of an ebook and would truly prefer getting an ebook once a month with hints/tips/recipes then having 6 emails a week where if something does not appeal to me at the time I would just toss it. Whereas in an ebook, i would file it with my other e-cookbooks to be browsed when a recipe or inspiration is needed. Thanks for the recipe books

Looks good so give them a try

I like cooking and baking
