The Thursday Thirteen – 12/04/2014

Christmas is coming, whether we’re ready for it or not, so we mine as well embrace it. Let’s rock the tinsel, wrap ourselves in garland, sprinkle on the glittery sparkles, shout our favorite holiday lyrics to the universe, all while enjoying as many cookies and as much eggnog as we can without overdosing.

Santa’s going to want some cookies. You can’t just feed Santa any ol’ cookie. You need to make a few “test” batches first, just to make sure they’re good enough for the big guy. Start with these Iced Oatmeal Cookies from Mother Thyme.
