Family Holiday Celebration

This holiday season we had several firsts - no traveling for us (apart from Sacramento, but no planes) and we got the Kleins, Craigs and Pfeifers together!! We hosted the family dinner at a Craig family favorite, Hunan and then had everyone back to our one bedroom apartment in North Beach for a dessert and champagne party.

Here are the photos and links to recipes:

These are the S'more Cookie Bars from Baking Bites - a favorite blog of mine. Check out her photos, recipe and post here.

I also made mini Lemon Honey Cupcakes, with Lemon Honey Cream Cheese Frosting. These were also a big hit. The recipe for these came from Couture Cupcakes. Check out her pictures, recipe and blog here.

Also on the dessert table: Colorful Candy Bar Cookies (recipe here), and of course two must have desserts from Dorie Greenspan's cookbook Baking from My Home to Yours - All American Apple Pie and World Peace Cookies (just google it, you can read all about the recipe and the hype).


  1. My favorite was the S'Mores bars!!! Thanks so much for sharing your baking with us, Lorelei. Good road trip food! See you Friday hopefully! H

  2. MMmm, I've made those s'mores bars before they are sooooo good. S'mores are my other fave flavor!! Yours look great!
