Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!  Hope you all have great holiday with family friends!!

I have been without a computer for the last 5 days!  It has been torture not being able to blog and visit all my favorite sites….but the good news we are now virus free and I will get back into the blogging world on Thursday.    Plus I have gotten so many things accomplished in the last week that I otherwise would not have been able to do and was able to spend lots of time with my little boy!

 There will be no Create it or Bake it this week so make sure to come back next week and linkup!

Create it or Bake it #10

Thank you all for taking the time and coming over and linking up.  We almost hit 100 links…so thank yo


I would like to start a little challenge.  After you post your links I would like each of you to visit the link before yours.  Visit there blog say hi and leave them a nice comment.

On a side note I still can’t believe that Christmas is here in 9 days.  My plans for today require some last minute shopping and alot of baking before I head down to the in laws house for the weekend.

Create it or Bake it will not be happening on December 24th.  Even though I will be working I think it should be a day for us all to spend time with our families.  So have a Merry Christmas and I will look forward to see you all in the New Year!

 Hope everyone has recovered from Thanksgiving and Black Friday and get those few days of rest before Christmas is here.    I have been procrastinating a little bit this year!   Usually by this time im done shopping but I keep putting it off!   I really need to finish buying gifts for our loved ones and get them wrapped up this week so I can stop stressing and just sit back and enjoy the time.  This will be my sons 2nd Christmas, but technically it is his first being able to open gifts and I think he will have so much fun this year I can’t even wait!

We just had a huge snow storm that hit Salt Lake City.  Went to bed Saturday night with about and 2-3 inches and woke up Sunday morning with about 13 inches.  Definitely not expecting it, but it always helps me get into the Christmas spirit with fresh snow fall!

Please take the time and visit other bloggers and leave them some comment love!   We are having lots of great links that I would love everyone to check out.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  We had lots of  fun being with family and running around with cousins that we don’t get to see very often and eating lots and lots of delicious food.  This year we didn’t have to do anything but bring the mashed potatoes for a lot of people.  My husband said never again to volunteer for potatoes because his wrist was killing him from peeling.  But he is a good sport and peel 20+ pounds for me.   Since we didn’t have to cook a turkey that means I have no turkey to make any of those yummy looking leftover recipes.  So this weekend im making a turkey to give some of those recipes a try.  So make sure to link up some of your favorite recipes for me to try.

Do I have any black Friday or should I say black Thursday shoppers?   I of course went out and got lots of great deals and spent way to much money. Did you guys get any great deals?

Thanks for everyone coming over each week and sharing your projects with all of us.  Each week we keep getting bigger and bigger.  So make sure you take the time to visit one another and tell them you came over.

 Sandra from A Dash of Sanity

As a mother of five, daycare provider, and head chef/owner of Delectable Moments, a catering business I started four years ago, I’ve discovered ways to make life easier while maintaining great taste. And on occasion, I find solace in the adventure of a challenging recipe or the elevation of an experience with heartfelt touches and a bit of panache.  I want people to feel my love through my food. I cooked my first meal eight years ago after spending several years in the fast-paced tech industry. During that time, I was able to dine at many fine restaurants across the country from LA to New York, leading to the knowledge that good food is worth the extra time and money. But you can’t take kids to those places, and my fate led to marrying a middle school teacher. As a result, I wanted to blend my two known worlds into one – where food, pleasure, and a conservative budget could collide on a plate and still create lasting memories. So whether you’re looking for a sweet dessert, crockpot recipe, or something more refined, I hope a dash of Sanity provides you with just that… an idea, a laugh, encouragement, or just a break from the everyday madness.
