Foodie Friday and Everything Else

It's time for Foodie Friday and Everything Else. The temperature is falling, and I've stayed inside my warm, cozy kitchen, baking Christmas goodies. I've made French bread, 2 kinds of peanut butter fudge (one recipe didn't quite work), shortbread, gingerbread cake, and pecan scones.  
Last week's party was filled with heartwarming stories and ideas. I love seeing what you're doing in the kitchen and around your home. Let's visit the home tours you loved best:

 An 'All is Bright' tour by Everyday Living.

A Cozy Christmas by Dining Delight.

A Craftsman Christmas by Poofing the Pillows.

Holiday Home Tour by Panoply.

Cozy at Christmas by My Heart Lives Here.

A Traditional Christmas with a French Twist by Belle Bleu Interiors.

An Urban Farmhouse Christmas Porch by Worthing Court.

Vintage Style Dining Room by Penny's Vintage Home.

Crab Imperial Appetizer by A Dish of Daily Life.

Toffee Almond Sandies by Olla-Podrida.

Puff Pastry Wrapped Beef Wellington by The Kittchen.
