Homemade Holiday Treats

Amanda Hesser encourages us to make our own eggnog, cheese balls and fruitcake.

Nigella Lawson writes about the luxury of breakfast without the stress. She has recipes for raspberry and oatmeal swirls, bacon and egg bake, and granola muffins.

Yesterday we made chocolate cupcakes with Marco - double batches so we can each bring some to our families. I'll post the recipe when I get a chance. It calls for coffee and sour cream among the more exotic ingredients, and the result is moist chocolate with a subtle taste of coffee. Today we make the frosting. Mmmmm.
