For me, a box of cookies represents more than a mound of sugar worked into different forms. My Christmas Cookies Box is steeped in traditions that don’t change and most likely reflect a favorite of each member of the family. I love taking the time to bake each of the classics each year and it’s also heartwarming to receive a box of someone else’s cookies.
I love to see what everyone makes each year and this year. I was fortunate enough to receive my very own box from a new friend and get to explore her family through a Christmas Cookie Box. It was packed to the brim with beautiful handmade cookies, all of which I hadn’t experienced before.
One of the biggest reasons that I love to travel is because I love to explore other cultures through food. Food tells a big story and you can often learn a lot about how an individual or culture was influenced by how they cook or don’t cook. In the coming year, I want to share more stories of my travels and the things and foods I have learned about while on the road.
From Christmas cookies to holiday feasts, KendellKreations will be pivoting into that direction with my food and recipes going forward. I have visited many places (and have even more on my list, hello Italy with my friend Lori!), and been to almost every state in the union (I’m looking at you Alaska and North Dakota).
I look forward to sharing the stories of the people that I have met, and the meals that they cook. Much of my life and style of cooking has evolved as I have learned from others and now I want to share that experience with you. Let’s learn, grow, and experience new foods and cultures together in the coming year.
But for now, I wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season! May your cinnamon buns be fluffy, your cookies be sweet, and your roast beast be tasty. From my kitchen to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
If your looking for some beautiful cookies like you see above to fill your Christmas cookie box, look no further than my 2019 Chrismas Recipe Advent Calendar. My friends and I work hard all December long to bring this together for you and I hope you learn and explore through each recipe you make.
There are a few savory recipes sprinkled in, and some of my shares are family heirloom cookie recipes.
