Break for life

I took a break. I took a long break. Sorry! I've still been baking(even winning first place in a bake-off with a Holiday Spice Cake with Eggnog Buttercream Frosting). I got my Sixth Year Degree and finally finished that thesis in May. I had every intention of starting the blog again,  but life got in the way.

Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away in October. I have so much I could say, but really I just miss her. I miss her everyday.

So what have I baked lately? There's the Holiday Spice Cake with Eggnog Buttercream Frosting( yes, I won first place but my husband was apparently supposed to be the baker and so we lost- we'll get'em next year Hun!), Dutch Apple Pie, Cinnamon Buns, Pizzelles( I got a pizzelle maker!), gingerbread men, no-bake mini cheesecakes, and so much more.

The holidays have forced me to start moving on, start new traditions. I'll remember the old ones but it's too much to stay in the past all the time.

So, I am saying hello once more before 2014. I'm not sure what the new year will hold but I'm praying for peace, health, and happiness.

Hope you've all been doing well. I wish nothing but goodness for you and your families this year!
