Hunger Games

Have you guys read the Hunger Games series?  If you have then you totally get that title.  If you haven’t then you should read it.  It is a great series!! 

Now of course I am talking a little bit differently about hunger games than what the book is about.  There will be no fighting here.  Of course unless it is over the last cookie or piece of Christmas candy!

This is my usual hungry week.  Then on top of that we have a holiday, a big holiday, coming up.  Then on top of that I have a lot of baking to do throughout the week in preparation for that holiday.  That is not a good combination!!

So this week will be a sharing of all things Christmas, starting with my homemade chocolate chip cookies!!

As you can tell these are not your healthyfied cookies.  Oh no they are the real deal!  I have nothing against a healthy cookie, but with it being the Christmas holiday we go all out.  Besides Santa informed me that he doesn’t like the healthy ones.  He wants real chocolate chip cookies, lol!!
