Nestie Holiday 2008

Last night we went to visit and meet fellow nesties, Emily of Joy of Cooking and Nikki of Pennies on a Platter. It was such a great time to catch up, hang out and fill our evening with smiles and laughter. Emily made a fabulous spread of heavy appetizers and an amazing dessert table. Sadly I missed out on taking pics but trust me... everything I tried was super delicious! Emily and her mom did a fabulous job! Thank you Emily for your warm hospitality and a great night!

Nikki made some awesome chocolate biscotti too... and they had the perfect richness of chocolate, thanks to the cocoa nibs she used in her recipe. Nikki also played Santa and gave us a wonderful stocking full of goodies of Peanut Butter Fudge, Candy Cane Biscotti and Peppermint Chocolate Cookies. Thank you Nikki for the tasty gift and I look forward to getting together soon!
