Temptation Tuesdays

As expected, December is not going to be an easy one to meet my healthy living challenge, that is to make this Christmas season binge free. This past week alone, I hosted a gingerbread house raising, made Christmas cookies and blondies (will be sharing those recipes soon) for a church event, and made Christmas candy and bars (also on their way) for our Christmas party. And oh yeah, we had the Christmas party with a giant dessert buffet. I’ll admit it, I did have seconds, but I didn’t overdo it – partially because I knew I had this challenge. Why not come and join in too. You’ll have the chance to win a Mastrad Oil Mister. Just click on the blog button below.

Tempting Tidbits from other blogs:

whole-wheat-pasta-with-brussels-sprouts-1Pasta with Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Pine Nuts (Emmy Cooks): With a bit of a sugar overload, I think I need something both healthy and comforting this week. This one fits the bill. I love the idea of shredding brussels sprouts.

Peppermint-Crunch-Cookie-Dough-Ball-7Peppermint Crunch Cookie Dough Ball (Picky Palate): It’s a giant cookie dough ball to put next to your cheese ball and then you have an entire meal at your fingertips.

    Great job! It’s hard to resist temptation this time of the year. When we were traveling, I had quite a few desserts 🙂

    I bookmarked that peppermint cookie dough ball too, doesn’t it just look so pretty and delicious?
