    They all look lovely….those pumpkin truffles are dangerous :-)
    I just finished making almost all of my Christmas gift bags…..some cookies to be baked tomorrow and then I am done :-) I love all the great ideas you have, you had a whole wheat pancake mix that I really liked and that for sure I will be using next year :-)
