 On one hand, I said I would not start another swap until after March. On the other, I enjoy baking cookies and have some cool cookie cutters I never get to use. On my third imaginary hand, I usually bake for a secret santa I do every year. So I could kill two birds with one stone.
 I do my major baking for two game conventions every year. I mainly bake sugar cookies and chocolate chip varieties. I do have two sugar free recipes.

Mmm, cookies... I'm considering this one, its not like I don't love baking... although I don't really consider myself the best baker. Hmm...

@Alchemy... The cookies you sent me were amazing. I think you are a great baker!! I can't wait to get this one started. I promised myself no more swaps until summer...but I couldn't resist Smiley

Oh.... I should jump in this one!  We are having a cookie baking weekend at my new to us family on the 8th so it's close enough and I don't want to be the one to eat most of what I made (which is normally what happens).  Gotta see how the next week plays out... crossing my fingers!

I'd love to sign up, but I'm vegan. So I'm a bit worried whoever would be partnered with me would have a tough time figuring out what to bake.  Undecided
