Making your own gingerbread house is a longstanding European tradition. Gingerbread is known as lebkuchen (life cake) in German because ginger preserves the cake for a longer period of time, a classic ode to all things sugar and spice.
When you think about it, decorated Christmas cookies fall into two primary categories. There's the 'cute' category filled with smiling Santa faces and candy cane shapes and such, and then there's the 'stunning work of art' cookies.

Although this kitchen had bright white cabinets, they couldn't make up for the bank of overhead cabinets that closed off the space and made it rather dark. Out went the over head cabinets and in went
I've rounded up 12 homemade edible gift ideas for Christmas. I wanted to move away from the basic DIY S'mores kits and have included 3 interesting bakes, cordials/teas, jams and savory preserves. There something for everyone, all with a little twist. Carrot Cake Jam? You betcha!

Okay, you guys. This is just plain cool! Think of all the different images you could turn into candy. THEN... think of all the different occasions you could use said candy! You've got party favors for your next, oh, ten parties covered with these bad boys.
