Oh my goodness!!!! We are less than two weeks away from Christmas and I know your kitchens are a flurry.

Well, to be specific, my own kitchen is a mess, but that’s not the point. 😉 My college guys come home Thursday and then I’ll have many reasons to get the oven humming.

The sense of smell is such a gift. We can all close our eyes and think back on a specific fragrance that takes us back in time. Not only can we recall the scent, but the whole scene. Those memories from fragrances linger, so let’s make sure to offer this gift in our own home and I know our families love when we bake those special goodies this time of year.

Ironically, at this exact moment I have apple cider, mulling spices and a cut orange simmering on the stove. I wanted to engage the sense of smell while we finished decorating. For about ten minutes, it smelled like heaven. Then I went outside to hang some garland and came back into it boiling over on my stove with a horrible burning smell. Yep, those memories linger too.

I’ve stocked up on a few fun baking necessities and some of my friends’ guides have helped me so much. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites (I have an addition to vintage Pyrex. )

I already shared a few of my random favorites things (and deals) on this post.

Enjoy!! What are you baking this week?
