As the holiday season begins, many are baking special treats and traditional holiday cookies. I was especially excited this year to bake since I was invited to my first-ever cookie swap that was organized by Chris & Karen from The Peche, Maggie from Three Many Cooks, Gail from One Tough Cookie and Abby Dodge.
The idea of this swap is brilliant as each person is responsible to bake and bring 3 dozen cookies of their choice. As a novice baker, I was a bit intimidated by all the experienced bakers that will be at the swap so I decided I would make something that I made in the past - Pecan Balls. This cookie is relatively easy to make and I know they are especially tasty. After all, you can't go wrong with butter and pecans.
What an incredible spread!

As you can see in my last post, I tested an amazing seasonal soup with chilies. If you enjoy my recipe, here's your chance to help. The poll is now open, pleas vote here for my Spicy Kabocha & Quince Soup with Thai Flavors.
I had a really fun time testing this recipe so thanks in advance for you support; and I hope you enjoy my recipe as much as I did.
P.S.: To prevent vote fraud, the organizer set the poll to allow only one vote per . For example, if you work in an office where all users share an IP address, then your entire office will be able to vote only once. However if you go home and use your home computer then additional vote could be counted. So vote as often as you want so long as you don't use the same IP address.
