Holiday Baking Season

Let the holiday baking begin!
As soon as I arrived back in Austin from my Thanksgiving travels, I started getting in the mood for baking all the treats I so love to make this time of year. I'm waiting until next weekend to start my Christmas season, but I know many of you are already there. I'm receiving a lot of requests for some of my holiday recipes. The favorites this time of year tend to be Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows (great for gifts,) Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark (also great for gifts,) and Cranberry Pumpkin Bread (great for anything.) If you're wanting any of these recipes for personal use, I'm happy to e-mail them for free. (Of course, I charge for them to be published, as they are copyrighted and my own creation.)
I plan on continuing my experiments in the kitchen this year. I've made Peppermint Marshmallows and Vanilla Marshmallows before, and I think I'll try that again, maybe throwing in a little caramel dip for the vanilla ones. I'm also going to try a S'mores experiment with the Bark. That could turn out phenomenally. We shall see.
My theory in cooking is this: If everything going in to it is good, then it will be good! This has served me well. I love trying new things in the kitchen!

I love the idea for Chocolate Marshmallows. The idea of them with some graham crackers and a roaring fireplace just seems so right on a cold (northeastern) winter's night

The peppermint marshmallows were excellent last year, CC... kind of like a breath mint and a marshmallow all in one! And I usually am not a fan of peppermint in my sweets.
