Baking cookies with my baba....






I hope everyone takes a moment this season to honor tradition and get in the spirit. I spent a lovely afternoon with the cool women in my family, baking cookies. I didn't take the time to come home last Christmas and bake with my family. This year I was reminded of just how important and, well, fun it is.

Enjoy!

That's such a wonderful thing to do -- something you are always going to have in your stash of memories. While I didn't get back east to bake with my mom and grandma, I did make Babka for the first time this weekend, something my 2 female family members always used to do. And it came out so GOOD!

Those look delicious! I regret not helping my mom out in the kitchen when i was younger, but now, whenever I go home, we plan long days cooking together. Great way to bond. Happy Holidays!

Oh, yum. This makes me so homesick! You're so lucky that your family is so close--and it sounds like you really appreciate it too!
