i have to say, this was actually made by my mother, but i had to include it in this blog- it pays tribute to my bulgarian heritage. this is traditional bulgarian chirstmas eve bread decorated to honor God, the house, the people in it and the garden. my daughter had a lot of fun adding the decorations! :)

Every christmas, I drive myself and everybody in my family crazy when I start baking my Christmas cookies... :) Because I don't just stop at one or two, or three kinds, I have to bake hundreds of cookies every year! And when you have only a few days to do the job in between going to work full time and taking care of three little kids, it can get pretty stressful. Yet, I love it. I know, I'm strange. :) The few pictures below a small sample of all the cookies that left my house this Chirstmas (because as you may have guessed, more than 90% of these are gifts- my own homemade gifts of love :))
