Thursday Randomness

Like many folks during the holiday season, I've been doing a lot of baking. I have a number of must-makes each year - Chocolate peanut butter balls (two batches of this one because the first never makes it to Christmas), fudgey chocolate oatmeal squares, Agnes bars, cranberry and white chocolate chip cookies, gingerbread cookies, and sugar cookies -- but I like try one or two new ones each year.

I think I found a new family favourite this year through Pinterest. It's called Chocolate Saltine Toffee, but I've also heard it referred to as Christmas Crack or Toffee Bark. It is quick and easy to make (I'm all about the easy baking!), and best of all, delicious.

Other Pinterest finds that got kidlet-thumbs up include Chicken Gloria, World's Best Chicken (I wouldn't say world's best, but it's good), Chocolate Cobbler (it did not look appetizing coming out of the oven, but it tasted great), and Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls.

Speaking of kidlets, we went to get the Christmas tree this past weekend, where my kids love to have the Christmas tree fall on them. It happened by accident a couple of years ago and now it's become a bit of a tradition (they have to look down and cover their heads as it's coming down though). Giggles galore. :D

Linking up with Cindy at Live a Colorful Life to celebrate all things random.

Happy Thursday all!
