52 Photos Project – Week 31 :: this makes me happy

Welcome to Week 31 of the 52 Photos Project. This week’s prompt is:

this makes me happy (n.) person, place, thing; (v.) activity

There are lots of things that make me happy. This time of year, as we get ready to celebrate Christmas, I love seasonal baking & cooking. Being in my kitchen makes me happy, and of course, all the sweets make my hubby VERY happy!

Today, just for this prompt, I’m making yet another batch of German Christmas Stollen. It is a cross between Christmas cake and sweet fruit bread. There are as many recipes, as there are cooks, determined by how and where you are from. My version is a cross between my mother’s and my mother-in-law’s recipes….and you will just have to trust me that the house smells GREAT!

Here is today’s batch ready to go into the oven:

What favourite foods do you absolutely HAVE to make for the holidays?

Thank you so much for visiting. Don’t forget to head on over to Bella’s blog to check out what makes the other contributors happy.

Until next time, Connie πŸ˜„πŸŽ„


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
