To bake or not to bake?

The holidays are fast approaching so that means one thing:  I finally have an excuse to BAKE!  In preparation for this exciting time to arrive, I have been spending some time browsing food blogs (a favorite pastime), looking for fun, new recipes to try.  I thought I'd share a few of my tasty findings with you all...

Aren't these just adorable?  I can't wait to make these simple little brownie bites dipped in semi-sweet chocolate.  They'd make a lovely addition to a holiday dessert platter.  I'm most excited about finding clever ways of decorating them.

 Made with a buttery graham cracker crust, a caramel base and pumpkin cheesecake filling, this cheesecake screams two words: 
Delicious. and. Calories.
In this case, I'd say the delicious cancels out the calories. 

I'd have to say this was one of my favorite discoveries in the food blogosphere today.  This simple spread consists of three fantastic ingredients: 
Confectioner's sugar.
(or brandy or rum)

As Julia Childs would say, "whisk the [ingredients] into submission" and serve up a dollop of the sauce on your favorite warm pie, cobbler or crisp.  *smacks lips*  Simply wonderful.

There's so many more recipes I could show you but my laptop already needs a mop to clean up all of this drool and I'm guessing yours does too.  So sorry for salivating... I know it's terribly un-ladylike.  

I had more to write about various other things but I'll save them for the next post.  I'm tired and GLEE is available to watch online now, so I know where I'm headed... :)  

However, I'll leave you with a question:  What are your favorite things to bake over the holidays?
