Taking a break from makin muffins

Oops, there's the buzzer, be right back.

K, I'm back. I don't know about you, but this week seems to be full of meetings before the end of the year, work parties, and baking, lots of baking.... Tomorrow at work we're having "snack day" and I had to find something to make last minute. I decided on Mini Pecan Pie Muffins and Jalapeno Bacon Dip. I know they don't really go together, but they can eat them at different times. It's a free muffin and free dip! Doesn't get much better than that!

We do a celebration in January after all the hubbub is over and it's a "Celebration of the Previous Year" rather than a "Holiday Party". It was a lot easier to be a manager before everything became offensive. I digress. After the muffins come out of the oven I need to start on 12 dozen cookies for an exchange Saturday. Yes, 12 dozen.. I decided on Pizzeles which are those thin, waffle like Italian cookies. So tasty, but really time intensive. I must have lost my mind.

I did finish a few cards for posting. I have a few more, but I think I'll have to dole them out to you over the next few days. :)

Here are the cards I made for my MIL, FIL and SIL.

Kev liked the menorah the best so I made 2 of these. One for mom and 1 for dad. The set is Mazel Tov from Paper Trey Ink, I stamped it in Versamark, and embossed with silver powder. The paper is Bazzil Basics, I used the SU! Scallop punch and the ribbon from Michaels. Super quick and really cute IMHO.

This one went to SIL. This one is MY favorite. Same layout, same ingredients, I used the dreidel instead.

Alright, off to make more cookies! Oh, and to straighten the Christmas Tree, yes the kitties knocked it over while we were at work. No real tragedies but Captain Kirk did get dislodged from the transporter. I told Kev I'd fix him tonight.

Very beautiful cards! I rarely see Hanukkah stamps. Those are really nice.
