Tis the season for yuletide gnoshing

You know those 9 dozen cookies I baked for the sweet swap?

Well, here's what we got in return:
Joy to the world, and to me.

A helpful tip for ya, too: an easy and deceptively fancy treat to make for potlucks and holiday parties is the good ole cheese ball, brought to you by Wind Willow.
One just adds butter and cream cheese to the mix, lets it chill, forms the ball (fun, messy part!)then rolls in the topping. Partner with veggies and crackers (I prefer Triscuit Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil) already in stock, and you have a go-to take-along appetizer. Mine was a hit at the sweet swap (ok maybe just one of the girls said she loved it but she is from Hawaii and that is a really exotic, beautiful place so her opinion counts for ten...)
