Baking my way through

I'm a little boring with my baking. I tend to go for what catches my eye, and more often then not what's easy. If I like the picture but then I read the instructions and it doesn't seem easy I don't give the recipe another thought. Then when I go to parties I always try these great deserts and wonder why I don't do that myself. I stick to what I know I like...So I've decided that I am going to bake my way through my favorite cook book. This book has over 175 recipes so it's going to take me a while but I'm excited!

I've done a few of the recipes already:

Two-in-One Holiday Bar
Yuletide Slice
Ginger Snaps
Split Seconds
Peanut Butter Crunch Bars
Peanut Butter Balls
Peanut Blossoms
Orange Cappuccino Drops
Linzar Stars
Caramel Sandwich Cookies
Mint Brownies
Cranberry and Vanilla Chip Cookies

So at least I have a start, but like I said, there's over 175 recipes, so this might take a really long time! Either way it's going to be interesting to see all the different things I now try and to finally get through a whole cook book. I hate having so many cook books but only using a few recipes from each, I feel like that's such a waste!

So here goes! Look forward to a lot of baking!!
