I love you, Sandra Lee

With a full time job, endless obligations, a house that seriously cannot stay dust-less, it becomes increasingly harder to cook and bake from scratch.
Which is why my favorite girl in the world is Sandra Lee.

I love the concept of all of her recipes and I apply it to most of my dinners and desserts that I cook up.

I hosted a cookie exchange last night and my contribution were these two – no pain cookie recipes.
I mean, you cannot make it easier than this….and I promise they are cute and delish!

Christmas Chips

2 bags of peppermint kisses

2. Lay out your pretzels and place 1 kiss on each

  1. I just found your blog and am a new follower! These recipes look great and so easy. I want to try the pretzel/kiss/m&m combo for sure!

  2. The pretzel recipe sounds very similar to my Christmas bark..which is amazing..so I'm sure those were as well. :) Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Both of these recipes look delicious (and very festive)! I agree that Sandra Lee is just spectacular!

  4. Sandra Lee should be my bff. Semi Homemade and cocktail time! Love her.

  5. So sorry I couldn't make it to the exchange! Merry Christmas sweet friend : )
