And finally here we are with Christmas just around the corner. I always feel that Christmas overcomes me but I love Christmas despite everything.
I made these brownies because I loved that they have Christmas spices so smell wonderful.
Gingerbread men are edible, and you can buy them on Amazon. I find them cute :) and they give a Christmas touch.
There are still some recipes for Christmas and New Year, they will be for the next week.
Merry Christmas to everybody and have a wonderful time and from my part a strong hug and thanks for the love and the affection.
