It’s family time spent together, sharing, laughing, giving, receiving and of course, eating!!
The eating part is awesome, but of course, so is everything else. It’s just that over this month and a half, so much delicious food is made with flavors that really shout holidays. There’s vanilla, cinnamon, cranberries, egg nog, apples – it’s just all so very delicious!

Our oldest daughter drove down to visit us for a few days and she and I decided to visit one of our most favorite stores to check out Christmas decorations and purchase some groceries so that we could start our holiday baking. While we were there I spotted this limited edition Quaker Oats Quick Oats 42oz winter canister which is exclusively at Target.
It’s so pretty with the winter scene and kind of does make me miss the snow now that we’re living in Phoenix.
Ok, not so much. But seeing the snow covered pine trees on the canister did make me all warm and fuzzy inside for the holidays!
I decided to make some oatmeal cookies and the packaging was hard to resist. Not only will I be making cookies with the oats and eating it for breakfast, but I also created a dessert that we’re sure to enjoy for many years to come! #QuakerUp #MyOatsCreation #CollectiveBias
