25 recipes to Christmas round-up and Santa’s coming to town

It’s been a fun month.  I can’t believe the #25recipestoXmas it’s over. There have been cookies, cakes, tart, cupcakes, loaves of bread. I’m getting hungry just looking at them.


I would like to thank to my wonderful bakers who helped me bringing you all these treats.

Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More
Carrie of Bakeaholic Mama
Laura of Tutti Dolci
Lora of Cake Duchess


To celebrate i’m offering not one, not two but 5 (five) holiday gifts!


The first one is a holiday basket from Hershey’s.
You know how much I am obsessed with love their seasonal kisses. From cookies to cakes I used them over and over in my baking. Their milk chocolate is a sample when making s’mores.

The second holiday basket comes from Imperial sugar.

Sugar is one of the ingredients used in more than half of the recipes on this site. Imperial sugar offers not only lots of sugar products but you’ll also find recipes and cooking and baking tips.

The fourth holiday basket comes from The Republic of Tea.

If you’re reading this blog for a while than you probably know I’m a tea lover. There should come to no surprise why I asked The Republic of Tea to offer a holiday basket. I love their wide varieties of tea. From Black and Green to Hibiscus and Welness tea they have something for everyone. And their gift sets make a wonderful Christmas present for tea lovers and not only.

    I’d like a food processor and camera bag, but don’t anticipate either. I can’t wait to see my husbands and girls faces when they open their gifts (hubby doesn’t even know what they have wrapped up either)

  5. says

    I need Santa to listen to me closely… bring me a KitchenAid mixer and a new lens for my camera!! ;-D

    P.S. Thank you for inviting me to participate… it was an absolute honor!! xoxo

  6. Terri C says

    Could really use an immersion blender. I have so enjoyed your 25 recipes, esp. the bread would love to make them all! Maybe I need a KitchenAid! Merry Christmas!

  7. says

    Wow, it’s amazing how much you baked and everything looks delicious. The cream cheese bread is still on my to-bake list but I’m not sure I’ll get to it before the end of the year. It’s at the top of my list though :o) Thanks again for sharing your wonderful recipes.

  8. Anne says

    Santa, if you’re reading this, I would like to find a baking pan for donuts under the tree. Then I will bake you some donuts.

    Roxana, I’ve greatly enjoyed following the 25 Recipes to Christmas adventure. Thank you!

  9. Suzanne Perazzini says

    You must be incredibly proud of what you have baked this month and seeing them all together like that is mind blowing. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  10. Robin C. says

  11. Ann from Sumptuous Spoonfuls says

    I already got my santa wish this year! I wished for a peaceful holiday get-together with my family where everyone got along and it actually happened. I’m so glad. Happy Holidays to you Roxana :)

    Don’t enter me, I’m a Canuck. But just wanted to say how great everything looks. You really outdid yourself Roxana. This is one impressive round up of recipes.

  20. Lucy Schwartz says

    I have simple wants . I would like Santa to bring me a winning Powerball ticket. Just a few mil should solve my financial woes. They say money doesn’t bring you happiness but I would like to try that maxim out for myself. I have tried the opposite.

  21. Gentian says

    You surely have some deletable recipes listed! I’m bookmarking you, to peruse your lovely site…very nice.
    I asked for wild birdseed for Christmas…must kids thought I was joking…but my dear Mom came through, and I should be set for most of the rest of winter.

    Thanks for the contest, and Happy New Year! sharonanne56 (at) yahoo.com

  22. Mer says

    Santa brought me some new books and a lovely mug. And of course I have some wonderful holiday cookies to enjoy with my tea and reading.

  23. Kelly Britton says

    I really didn’t have a wish list this year, but my family and a dear friend made it a Christmas to remember. I received a Nook AND a kindle fire HD and a lot of other well thought out gifts. Since my husband passed in 2010, Christmas hasn’t been the same. This year was one that I can look back on and smile. :)

  24. CATHY TRUMAN says

    I would love some new shoes for my husband and a new dog bed for my
    puppy Bailey,some cat toys for my cat Jasmine and some bird toys for
    my bird Doodle. Thanks
