    I'm not much of a baker, I'm afraid. I put my efforts into decorating, gifting, and recording the holidays through pictures and words. Talking about pictures, I absolutely love your illustrations, as usual. What a lovely Christmas book you could create for people on your Christmas list. Along with your gingerbread delights, of course. Enjoy!

    • Hi Margaret, I bet your decorations are amazing. Thank you, it pleases me so that you enjoy my drawing. Happy New Year my friend. 🙂

    I absolutely love making holiday treats. For the past couple of years I have been making almond chocolate toffee. It has become a family favorite. I also love taking time to create memories with the kids by making cookies, breads, and fudge. I completely agree that we save these things for the holidays because it makes it that much more special.

    • Hi Elizabeth, Baking with your kids creates some priceless memories. Have fun with your almond toffee and share the recipe when time permits. 🙂

    Who doesn't like Holiday treats. I certainly look forward to them and I do agree, why do we only make them at Holiday time. Something to think about. HB

    • Hi HB, That is so true, I know I do. Happy New Year. 🙂

  • Tommy Tan

    Wonder how many Gingerbread cookie you need to bake in order to keep it full all the time. I basically eat anything any time so I don’t have any favorite holiday food 🙁

    • Hi Tommy, The answer your question an whole big bunch… LOL. I get that. For me, what I make and bake changes with the season and the holiday. 🙂

  • Ok so I want one of everything! It all looks delicious! Oh right, those are just illustrations. LOL

    • Hi Cheryl, LOL you got it. I’ll send some over when I can… illustrations that is .. Big smile. 🙂

  • I always see your love of art in your illustrations Susan. Thanks!

    • Hi Patricia, Thank you. That means allot to me. Happy New Year. 🙂

  • Even your cartoon drawings make me hungry!

    • Hi Jeri, LOL… that is too funny. Happy New Year. 🙂

  • I think your drawings are oh so cute, and for me Christmas is about the people more then the food……………that said I do prefer to eat in the lounge room and not in the car port…………..

    • I agree with you Jo-Anne. But for some reason all my family and friends expect my goodies when they visit… LOL. I would prefer the lounge room to the carport too. 🙂

  • I love to bake fresh apple pies and my wife’s upside down cranberry cake. What I most love thinking about is when I was a young child and longing for those italian prune cookies that my grandmother used to make. Yummy!

    • Hi Martin, Boy, mentioning the italian prune cookies brings back SOOO many memories of me. I will have to go in search for a recipe. :-). Have fun eating your apple pie and cranberry upside down cake… YUMMM!

      • Oh do share…I would share the pie and cake if I could…lol

        • Why not… LOL. I’ll let you know when I locate and make some… hee, hee

  • I love Pfeffernusse Cookies. They’re small cookies from Germany that have ginger, molasses and a bunch of seasonings including lots of black pepper! Really delicious and have made them for the past 2 years at Christmas. Ginger cookies have always been a favorite of mine. Lovely drawings Susan. Hope you’ve had a great holiday Season. Happy New Year!

      My mother loves Pfeffernusse. I try to make a batch at Christmas every year for her.

      • You are a very good man and she is a very lucky mom. Happy New to you and yours.

    • I LOVE Pfeffernusse Cookies. You must share your recipe with me sometime. Ginger bread is one of my favorites too. Thanks and have an amazing New Years my friend. 🙂

  • Julie

    I want everything on that table. Sigh… but oh the calories. To hell with it, tis the season to enjoy. Happy New Year to you.

    • Me too. I’m glad they’re just drawings… LOL. That means zero calories. :D, Happy New Year to you too. 🙂

    • Thanks Wendy, Me too! One of my favorite things happen to be Roasted Brussel Sprouts too. :D. Happy New Year!!!

  • Jeannette Paladino

    Susan — I love fruit cakes. I know the stories about the cans of fruit cake being re-gifted over and over again — either you love them or hate them. I love them!

    • Hi Jeannette, I too like GOOD fruit cake. It’s the stuff that pretends to be fruit that get passed around… LOL. Happy New Year my friend. 🙂

  • I love your gingerbread people! My favorite holiday food is for Passover, and it is called haroset. It’s a mix of apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine. Yum.

    • Hi Leora, I love Haroset. It is just delicious and yummy as you said. If you have a recipe for it, please share it. It would be fun to showcase it
