Nagging Snacks!

‘Tis the season for snacking! It all starts with Halloween and won’t end ‘til, let’s be honest, after the New Year. Tiny bites of chocolaty nutty caramel cookie goodness in all their many forms all saying one thing in resounding clarity. “EAT ME!”

And who can resist the pull of a Pumpkin Muffin, the allure of a Cheesecake Pop, the warm gooey invitation of a chocolate chip cookie? Don’t even get me started on M&Ms! Admit it! There is a tasty morsel on your desk right now practically begging to be savored. And try as you might to push it to the far reaches of your mind you cannot escape the inevitable truth. That before the day is over that treat will be devoured in what can only be described as unadulterated holiday snacking bliss.

This is usually the time that someone would caution restraint. Good thing for you I am not one of them. I don’t even like them. I say taste, snack, and nosh until your heart and stomach are content. You can start getting your bikini bod beach ready on Jan 2nd, right after you get rid of the hang over. For now, allow me to indulge you in some of my favorite holiday eats.
