holiday baking extravaganza

I have been baking like crazy this last week!  Have you?  Does your oven put in some serious overtime in December, like mine does?

Caramel corn, peanut butter swirled dark chocolate fudge brownies, sandebakkelse, hawaiian oatmeal cookies…  all sorts of treats for parties and gifts for family and friends.

This winter we have kep the heat in our house down at 67º all the time.  I decided that I would rather spend that electricity money on running the oven and all the twinkle lights we have up for the holidays!

So I have been baking almost every day so that our house is warm and cozy.  The delicious smells don’t hurt anything either!

I had a little wall oven before I got this new Maytag range and I am absolutely in love with my new big, huge oven.  6.2 cubic feet, to be exact!

I used to have to cut off the edges of Costco pizzas in order to fit them into my old oven.

Now I am in heaven…  the other day I cooked a huge turkey and a pan of stuffing all the the same time with ease.  And today I cooked two 9×13” pans of brownies right next to each other!

Have I told you I love this new Maytag oven?   Because I do!  :o)   I am looking forward to the next time I bake pies, being able to fit 3 or 4 in there at the same time.

Oh and the huge front window is so much fun for my boys.  They watch the oven like a tv half the time!

What are your favorite holiday treats to bake?
