Good morning! How was your week? Mine was great, as I mentioned yesterday I have just returned from 12 days in Argentina. It is summer there so it was incredibly hot and its a little strange because there were no Christmas decorations so it did not feel like the holidays were coming at all. I am happy to be home and ready to start baking.

I have a list of about 10 cookies that I always bake for the holidays but this year I feel like trying a few new cookies out and this recipe from Ashley Marie for Vanilla Bean Danish Butter Cookies looks like a winner!

I also have these Lemon Pistachio Wreaths from Delish on my list of new cookies to try this year.

I have wanted to make a yule log or a bouche de noel for ever but I am a little intimidated by the rolling process. This year I am going to conquer my fears and make this easy and delicious looking yule log cake from Kitchn.

Every party needs a signature cocktail and these Cranberry Orange Margaritas from Half Baked Harvest look perfect!
