Seasons Best Smells

AbclI’ve been dabbling in food prepping, styling, and plating recipes for Holley’s cooking segment on Talk of Alabama, a local morning show with a very eclectic guest line-up.

For the past few months I have been spending my Wednesday nights cooking up the recipes that are featured Thursday mornings. This week we decided on two recipes from Food Gifts under $3 and two recipes from Perk Up With Peppermint.

Cookiel_2So I suited up last night, put on my apron, and made Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies and chocolate cookies for Peppermint Patties. I also threw some poppy seed bread in the oven. I needed speedy and economical holiday gifts to give to friends this weekend.

While all of these sweet treats were finishing up and cooling in my small apartment kitchen, I couldn’t help but truly indulge in the wonderful smells. I wanted to bottle up the aroma and give it as a gift. So, if anyone is thinking of making a peanut butter-chocolate chip oatmeal peppermint patty cookie and poppy seed bread candle I’ll be your first customer.

Happy Holidays!

What are some of your favorite holiday scents?

    Make this with Mint peppermint ice cream and top with a microwave chocolate frosting as a little change. Yum!
