twelve days of xmas

Today’s giveaway is my favorite kitchen item-after my mixer of course. In fact, during the San Diego fires in 2008 my machine was one of the few things I grabbed before we were asked to evacuate!! Luckily nothing burned down where we were located! Can you imagine me having to explain to my kids that their childhood pictures burned, but my coffee maker didn’t. That would be a major sarcastic Mom of the Year moment.

I have been drinking Nespresso coffee since I first lived in Switzerland 12 years ago. Keurigs are cool if you are looking for a single serve standard coffee, but if you are looking for a classy and impressive cup, Nespresso is your coffee! It is the silkiest, most delicious cup ever. E.V.E.R. No I am not getting paid to say this :)

Triple Chocolate Espresso Cookies

I used a shot of Nespresso for these cookies which gave them an intense coffee and chocolate flavor. They were perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of Nespresso!

  1. It’s not really a baking tradition but my dad makes gin fizzes every Christmas morning. He takes a pitcher over to our neighbors who have also been enjoying this festive drink for 25 years! I can’t imagine not having it on Christmas morning.

  2. Haha – every time I see a Nespresso machine I think of you!!!! I can’t wait to try it one day soon!! My favorite Holiday baking tradition is chocolate peppermint cookies….always reminds me of Christmas!

  3. I love to bake all throughout the year. At Christmas I have a stollen recipe that is lovely. I also have a plum cardamon bundt cake that everyone raves about. There are so many recipes to discover that I have a difficult time preparing a repeat as I always love to try
    something NEW!!!!

  4. I would love to win this! Thanks for offering! I just started drinking coffee less than a year ago (and I’m 39). My husbands goal was to get me to drink the cheapest drink at Starbucks! haha I went from years of drinking hot chocolate, to low fat mocha, to latte, to coffee. Now I love checking out coffee houses all over the place. Basically he turned me into a coffee addict! haha

  5. I work at a preschool and each year, I decorate a big gingerbread cookie with my three year olds. While it is “cooking” in the oven we read the classic Gingerbread Boy story that my parents read to me when I was little. During story time, somehow (with the assistance of a parent helper!) the gingerbread cookie escapes from the oven and hides in the preschool. The children and I run around trying to find it and when we eventually do, we gobble it up before it can run away again. Love, love the magical thinking of preschoolers!

  6. I like to help my mom with baking! I usually make a mess and get in the way, but I hope to one day attain her baking skills:)

  7. We always make different types of fudge for friends and neighbors — like mint, eggnog, etc.

  8. During the Holidays I am usually in such a hurry I try to make one pie( pumpkin) and also a home made spice cake which is our family’s tradition since well before I was ever born. Thank you
