Have A Holly Jolly Christmas Recipe Swap #3

Welcome to Have a Holly Jolly Christmas Recipe Swap Friday. Friday already? I don't know about you but the time really is flying by. I can't believe it is December already! As I told you in my last post I have one tree up but I still have three more to go! Yes....I go a bit overboard on Christmas trees but I just love having them up with lights glowing. Makes our home so warm and cozy. :)




Today I posted for my swap Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. I love how they look with the deep red. So festive....and afterall... it's Christmas...and we have many reasons to be FESTIVE right?? :)

Your cupcakes look fantastic ~ great photo. A recipe swap ~ so fun. I feel badly that I've been unable to participate. This time of year is very busy at the winery with Holiday parties and Gingerbread Festivals. My blogging is an escape from the cooking. I absolutely love your idea of the swap. How many more weeks are you doing it. Maybe after I get the festival behind me I can join in with all your fun! I sure do appreciate the invite ~ be back soon.

I swear I gain at least 10 lbs. when I come to your house!!! I got no recipes for you, but I've certainly found some on here!! I've missed you sweet friend!!!
