favorite holiday recipes: holiday home scents

Most of my free time lately (not that there has been much!) has been spent in my cozy pj's, at home by the Christmas tree, warm beverage in hand and a holiday movie playing on the tv, in the company of a good book or entrenched in writing my next blog post. I'm quite the homebody and am even more so (as much as I can be) during the holidays. I just love being cozy and cooped up!
