I found this picture from last year. My mom was making home made pizza, and she asked me if I wanted to make one. She gave me a lot of dough, so I decided to make something out of it. Since it was January and I was hoping for snow, I made a snowman. It was beautiful before I cooked it. When I took it out of the oven, all of the toppings were in different places and it looked really weird. Oh, well. I have the cute picture.

My mom's favorite Christmas cookie is the Reese Peanut Butter Cookie. She e-mailed me the recipe and I assume that meant she wanted me to make them. It was pretty simple. I mixed a can of sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, and flour. I then had to roll it into balls, which was a sticky mess. After that, I pushed a Reese cup into each of the balls, and shoved them in the oven. A few broke, but they turned out really good. My mom liked them!

One of the goals for my blog is to increase the number of followers I have. You can see my list of followers on the right hand side of my blog. In order to increase the number of followers I have I am going to have a blog giveaway.
The other day when I was at the used book store, I saw a very affordable copy of a wonderful cookbook: The Kids' Holiday Baking Book by Rosemary Black. It is in great condition and the recipes in it are delicious and super fun to make.
I'm going to give this book away to someone from my followers list, so if you want to be included in the giveaway make sure to become a follower. In mid January, I will place all of my followers in the contest and draw one person to win this special book. If you are a follower and don't want to be included please let me know and I'll be sure to keep your name out of the hat.

I remembered a bakery that we used to have in town, and they sold these wonderful tasting peanut butter balls. I really wanted to make some, so I searched the internet for the recipe. I got out all of the ingredients and put them in a bowl. It got too thick to stir really quick. When I was finally satisfied that it was mixed properly, I moved over to the pan covered in powdered sugar.
I began rolling the mixture into balls and rolling them around in the powdered sugar. Several of them crumbled when I rolled them, and I was really starting to get annoyed. Plus, powdered sugar does not stay where it is supposed to. Most of it was in the pan but a lot of it was on my clothes, the counter, the floor, my face, etc.
I finally got them rolled into slightly nice looking balls, and served them to my family. Everyone loved them! I stuck the remaining ones in the freezer to have for another day.
