Pain Au Chocolate

Many of you know of my love for Trader Joe's. Well over the holidays, I found that they have frozen Pain Au Chocolate. You take them out the night before, let them rise and then bake for 30 minutes and voila you have fresh baked heaven for the morning. My Dad and I both gave these high marks. Here is a picture of them hot out of the oven. Run, run, run I tell you to TJ for this.

Buche de Noel

I have made a buche de Noel for the past few years, but not sure I'll make one this year. I love making this cake. Here is one that I made with my Dad last year. It was very yummy and looked great. It was the recipe from the Cake Bible.

Holiday Cookies

I am trying to decide what to make for some holiday cookies and I'm not sure what would be best. Ginger Snaps always remind me of my Grandpa Jim and they have a very special place in my heart. I had a gingerbread muffin at the store the other day and I really liked it, so I'm thinking of mini muffins. I'm guessing that the muffins are cupcakes, but I'll have to research more. What are you making?
