What I learned from the 12 Days of Treats
I had fun! While it was stressful, I found and created some awesome recipes and some are going to be staples for my family. We loved the shortbread, the Crinkle cookies on their own or made into whoopie pies, the ChocoRolo cookies and the chocolate chip fudge the best. I'm already thinking of new recipes and I've actually photographed a few. I know, I'm mental.
I was able to bake without scale penalties. Did I lose anything? 4 lbs and that's with 20 recipes under my belt from what I posted here to things I made for our own actual holiday celebrations. That is a huge friggin' victory in my eyes! I also know that I can fit stuff into my calories as long as I track and this just reiterated how important that is.
Most decadent recipes can be made a little healthier than you found them without sacrificing taste.
Co-workers will eat a shoe sole if covered in sugar or slathered in buttercream.
Did you make any of the recipes? Which ones were your favorites?
