This was the 5th year of my annual Holidazzle run. Part of this tradition includes an annual Christmas mixed CD that I also post on this blog. I threw in some oldies this year and was really happy with how it turned out. Until next year, Christmas tunes and Holiday runs!

As far as Christmas cookies, I made a lot of my favorites and tried one new recipe. There were way too many leftover sweets!
Jimmy’s Pink Cookies
Chocolate Ganache Macaroons
Chocolate Mint Patties
Peanut Butter Kisses
New Recipe from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook: peanut butter and chocolate fondant
I also cooked up two types of chili, this chicken tortilla soup, and a few salads. Plus, there was the usual drinks, appetizers, and other Christmas party food (homemade Chex mix). I once again had a great time with my close friends, running through my neighborhood, seeing the holiday lights, and cheers-ing the season! Happy Holidazzle!
