December weather is finally here

It finally feels like December here on the Cape... time to bundle up for those beach walks! The Christmas decorations are all around town, and the merchants are all in good cheer as many shoppers have decided to buy local this holiday season.

The Upper County Road bridge is still under construction, so you'll still need to take alternate routes if you get off Route 6 at Exit 9. There's also construction along 28 through Dennis, as well as Lower County Road in Dennis. Leave a little extra time and you'll be fine.

Whatever you're doing this last week before Christmas, take time to relax and enjoy.

Time for some Holiday Baking!

While I love baking cookies any time of year, the holidays are my FAVORITE time to break out the rolling pin, the colored sugars, the M&Ms... oh, who am I kidding about the M&Ms? Those are good all year 'round!

But seriously, I love baking Christmas cookies, and am so thankful that my daughter loves to be right by my side baking up a storm! (and that she is weird and doesn't like eating M&Ms, so more for me!)

She even helped me out with an article about Creative Cookies for the Holiday Issue of CapeWomenOnline magazine, you know, that place I'm supposed to be working today but am too busy baking cookies (I wish!)

Anyway, check out her story and our recipes for old-fashioned Stained Glass Cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms - yes, the ones with the whole Hershey Kiss sitting on the top! You can find the recipes in the Creative Women section of CapeWomenOnline magazine, along with photos.
