My daughter K has been morphing into a baking queen lately. From homemade pumpkin spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (made from scratch) to sweet Italian sausage and spinach calzones, she has been growing and learning in the kitchen with dramatic results. I am very impressed by her and I am sure to gain 100 pounds this Christmas season because of her baking talents.

Below is a more decorative example of her kitchen creativity. I told her it reminded me of a Christmas version of “Monster House”, an animated movie the kids watch.
