One of my favorite things to do, this time of year, is bake up holiday treats. Since I'm always watching my weight, I like to give away my "buggy goodies" to less fortunate frogs. There's something wonderful about making yummy food and sharing it with others. I think cooking is the closest we can come to making magic. Seeing the look on a froglet's face when you present them with a special treat, well, there's nothing else like it!
I have my shopping list ready and, fortunately, most of the ingredients are on sale this time of year; this affords me the opportunity to bake to my heart's content without breaking the bank. And that's so important during the holidays. Perhaps after I finish all my cooking and baking, I'll watch a classic Frogmas film; "It's a Wonderful Lily Pad" is one of my favorites or, maybe, "A Frogmas Story" which always makes me laugh.
For those of you humans who are brave enough to try them, I am including a link for some of the tastiest and buggy holiday treats from Land of Lily Pad (and my grandma's kitchen). And if you're not into bugs, I might suggest baking up a delicious batch of sugar cookies. They're fun to make and even more fun to decorate. Happy Baking, everyone!
