Here’s a bite of my dessert. Can I try yours?

One of the things I love most about the Holidays is recipes. Yep. I’m a recipe collector. I even love reading cook books. So, I thought, why not do a fun blog-recipe-exchange? I’ll share three of my favorite recipes and, if so inclined, comment below with the link or instructions to one of your favorite Holiday desserts. Fun, right?
