and the baking has begun...

I officially started my holiday baking today. Not that I am thrilled about it. I am not a person who enjoys baking - at all - or the mess that goes along with it. I loathe measurements and cooking accuracy... I'm a 'fly by the oil in my pan' kinda gal when it comes to preparing food. This is why I prefer to create a massive amount of sausage & peppers rather than a stinkin' apple brown betty.

So today I decided to make chocolate dipped macaroons and cake bites. Easy enough and yet somehow still a pain in the ass. 

All my ducks in a row


The little darlings a'cookin


Pretty sure I took these out too soon (as I do with everything) for fear of burning them


 I kinda hate dipping things in chocolate - not gonna lie


Definitely getting prettier--- and messier


Awww can't argue with an adorable tin


or two adorable tins


Now that's an ugly tin and the macaroons kinda look like crap but hey, what can ya really do? I did my best!
