Last year I participated in Overwhelmed with Joy‘s recipe exchange and it was great! I’m ALWAYS looking for new recipes (who isn’t?!) and I found some great ones last year. I get bored with the same ol’ – same ol’ when it comes to holiday cooking. I found some twists to the traditional and I found some out-right, completely different kinds of holiday cooking ideas.
If you get a chance, stop over there and check out some recipes and add your own if you have a mind to.
