This segment on my blog has been 2-3 years in the making! I have always wanted to do a series on my blog where for 25 days straight, I would present to you guys a combination of cookies, baked goods, meals, appetizers, and drinks that are perfect for the Christmas season! I wanted to do this series mostly because I wanted the challenge of posting recipes and stories for 25 days straight. I am already sweating from this challenge. But I am aimed and focus on providing you guys with some of the most delicious and easiest recipes that are inspired by the Christmas holiday. When I was thinking of this concept, I was freaking out by coming up with awesome recipes to share with you guys. I was freaking out because I started to think, “What the hell am I going to talk about for 25 days…straight?! I mean seriously, I really don’t think I am that interesting of a person to have that much to share and say to you guys. When I was talking with my mom about this idea, she gave me an awesome idea and that was to share some older pictures of my family around Christmas and share stories that were funny and entertaining. I thought that was a DOPE idea so that is exactly what I am going to do.
Before I start sharing stories about my family all “willy-nilly” I thought that smart thing would be to share with you a list of characters that you may hear about throughout this 25 Days of Christmas blog series. Yeah, let’s consider this blog series one long ass Christmas story that is filled with all types of crazies and laughs. Well, my hope is that I can be that entertaining to keep you guys coming back! Let’s meet the characters, shall we?
Al– This is my husband who surprises me every year around Christmas time. He can be a Scrooge or he can be a black version of Santa Claus. You never really know with him.
Mom– My mom is the sweetest, warmest, and kindest woman on the face of this planet. But man, she has lost her edge in the kitchen. I can say this because my mom knows this about herself. When you make a pie and forgot to put sugar in it, it’s time to hang up the apron.
Mojo– This is my stepdad who is a lover of food. He will be the loud and boisterous character in most of the blog post stories.
Frank, Jonathan, and Michael– These are my three little brothers, Twittle Dee, Twittle Dumb, and Twittle Dumber. I can say this about them because they are my brothers and this isn’t something they haven’t heard me say before.
Calvin– He is the apple of my eye, the love of my life, and the only person I would probably hit my internal “red button” for without asking any questions for. This is my son. I don’t have many Christmas stories about him as he just turned one not even a week ago, but you may hear about him from time to time.
So, this is my immediate family character list and I can’t wait to begin sharing stories that I am sure they will remember and you guys will enjoy. But right now, we need to talk about these Snickerdoodle Cookies.
There really isn’t much to say about these Snickerdoodle Cookies as the taste says it all!
Quick Mini Story:
The day I made these Snickerdoodle Cookies, I was minding my business sitting on my coach. My husband was heading out for work and was talking to me about something in politics. I gave him feedback to let him know I was listening when I probably really wasn’t. “You know babe, I don’t understand why the f**k people can’t just accept the fact that people aren’t kneeling to disrespect the flag but to make a stance of the racial injustice in this country!”, he said as he was putting on his shoes. “Yeah babe”, I said I was checking my emails. He then went towards the kitchen to grab his water bottle and saw the delicious and gorgeous Snickerdoodle Cookies I had just made and placed on the counter to cool. He proceeded to walk back into the living room with a cookie in his hand and said, “You know what babe? I am going to make a stance this Halloween and wear a shirt that says “BLACK LIVES MATTER”! I looked up over my reading glasses with a facial expression of being unimpressed and said, “Babe, have you looked at yourself in the mirror? You are BLACK LIVES MATTER! (my husband dark chocolate)”. “ Yeah well, I am going to…”, and out of nowhere, his eyes got big, he began making mmm noises from his mouth, and he looked at the Snickerdoodle Cookie as if it smacked him and then he said, “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!” “A Snickerdoodle Cookie”, I said. “This is not a Snickerdoodle Cookie. I’ve had a Snickerdoodle Cookie, and they tasted nothing like this! I need another one!”
I’ll end the story there because the conversation got ridiculous after that. These are the types of stories that I will be sharing during my 25 Days of Christmas blog series. I hope this mini-story tickled your fancy and made you eager for more laughs. So make a batch of these Snickerdoodle Cookies and get ready to be put in the holiday spirit!
