When I sat down and decided that I wanted to do a month full of sweets for December, I made a plan. I knew all of the recipes that I wanted to make, and I had a schedule. I try to keep organized, and I was pretty excited about my plan and all of the recipes that I had chosen.

And then I saw an episode of The Rachael Ray Show. And my plans came to a stop and had to be refigured.

Because of this Cannoli Cheeseball.

So…

Today’s post. It’s my 2000th post here on Taste and Tell.

2000.

I’m kind of freaking out as I type that number, because it’s kind of huge. I don’t think I could have ever imagined where this blog would take me when I started it that day back in March of 2007. I’ve been known to start things and get bored of them or lose interest for one reason or another, so it’s crazy to see that I’m here, going stronger than ever, 2000 posts later.

I don’t know what it is about bundt cakes, but it seems like just about everyone loves them. I think it’s because they aren’t intimidating like a layer cake would be. They remind me of something you’d whip up on a Sunday night to take to grandma’s house.

As much as I love a good layer cake or a beautiful cupcake, I’m always drawn towards the bundt cakes.

My family loves food. Whenever we get together, it’s all about the food. I love it, because I think they are all amazing cooks, so our meals together are something not to be missed. I also love it because most of them are a lot like me – they love finding and trying new recipes.

But while there are always a few new recipes on our holiday tables, for the most part, we like to stick to tradition. Meaning turkey on Thanksgiving and ham for Christmas.

I won’t lie – I do like the Thanksgiving turkey, but I really look forward to that Christmas ham. I always count down the days until that Christmas ham.

I always feel so far behind during the holidays. Actually, I feel so far behind on everything in life lately, but especially with the holidays.

We buy a real tree, so I always feel like it’s so late by the time we get it up – especially when I start seeing people’s trees go up before Thanksgiving.

My kids can’t decide on anything they want and are constantly changing their minds, so we haven’t even done the Christmas shopping, because I’m afraid there will be a big mind change which will result in even more trips to the store.
