I don’t know about your house, but thanks to the kindness of friends and family, my home looks like it’s been attacked by the Sugar Plum Fairies.
We’re awash in sweet holiday treats, including a tin of “Nonni’s biscotti” (no, not that Nonni’s) from Seattle Times restaurant critic Providence Cicero; homemade peanut brittle (thanks, Sally and Alan!); homemade cookies, peanut butter cups and chocolate-covered cherries from cousin Linda in Des Moines; brownies, banana bread and coconut bars from the Chows; krumkake from the Watsons and a two-pound box of See’s chocolates Mac bought for someone else — and kept for himself!
Good thing I don’t have much of a sweet tooth (though I can’t say the same for my guys), but I’ve got to tell you: I couldn’t help getting excited when this chocolate stocking-stuffer came down the pike. Or was that the chimney?
Mo’s Bacon Bar: proving, in fact, that everything’s better with bacon.
Anyway, I thought I’d ask: got any sweets left? Or, perhaps more to the point, which of your holiday sweets are gone but won’t soon be forgotten?
