Let me just open with this: I am absolutely exhausted!

Since Sunday I've been working shifts in my -least favorite room- kitchen, executing all the -crazy ass- careful plans I've made for holiday goodies.

I thought I'd share with you some of my -disasters- accomplishments from the last few days, and a few of lessons I've learned.

—Lesson #1:The best no-bake cookie recipe, ever!

When all else fails, just add more wine.

—Lesson #2: Hershey’s kisses, even after ten minutes, will not melt in the oven. They will, instead, become the driest, crumbliest piece of chocolate you have ever encountered when you try to smooosh a plain M&M into the center.

Lesson #2, Part II: Rolo’s, on the other hand, will melt beautifully and will graciously accept the smoooshing of a pecan.

Lesson #2, part III: In the future, consider the aesthetic beauty of a plain round pretzel.

--Lesson #3: A husband who considers the kitchen his domain is best handled by giving him a task of his own.

Lesson #3, Part II: When left unattended, he will make ginormous peanut butter buckeyes that will require a knife, fork and half-gallon of milk to consume.

—Lesson #4: Hershey’s kisses will melt beautifully in the microwave!

Lesson #4, Part II: Rolo’s will not.

—Lesson #5: Decorative burner covers, no matter how “cute“, will smolder and smell up the entire house when you turn on the wrong burner. They will also be ruined.

—Lesson #6: If you‘re going to get something right (like the best snickerdoodles ever made!), don’t forget to take a freakin’ picture of them before putting them into their containers and wrapping them in bows.

Love it
