Welcome to Stay at Home for the Holidays Blog Hop! If you’re coming from Morgan’s blog and her Christmas S’mores Popcorn, how good did that look?! Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, so I can’t wait to make that.

Growing up we would always have a day for baking holiday cookies. We’d made orange cookies and fig cookies, chocolate covered pretzels and so many other treats.

After I started having kids and my sister moved away, it got too difficult to continue the tradition. We haven’t made cookies in a couple of years. But it’s a tradition that I miss.

But I’m not a baker, and making all those cookies was a lot of work! So I decided to start a new tradition this year! Making Christmas pizzelles.

We’ve made pizzelles before, its a tradition my husband’s family used to have. I decided to use his grandma’s recipe, but I had to change a couple of the ingredients.

Little Miss is allergic to milk, and we just found out that John is allergic to milk and wheat. So I needed to change the recipe just a little to make sure everyone could enjoy this delicious holiday treat!

Speaking of traditions, my mom would always put up this little Christmas village. It was one of my favorite holiday decorations.

So I put it on my mantel this year! Ok back to pizzelles.
