I’ve shared nine years worth of holiday recipes here at Heavenly Homemakers. Nine!
You guys. Our boys looked like this back in 2007 when my site first became a thing:
Now they look like this. As you can tell, we got a taller tree. (I’m sure that’s the first thing you noticed.)
Isn’t that a nice picture? Yes. Of course, this one is more normal:
I can’t get over how quickly my boys turned into men. I was there, and now I’m here, and I’m not sure how it happened. With love, prayer, tears, and lots of green beans, no doubt.
Today I decided to share 30 of the recipes that I’ve posted through these many Christmas seasons. You can bet the recipes that used more sugar were from my earlier blogging years! Slowly but surely, we’ve cut back on sugar content in our treat recipes. Somehow, the boys have still grown and lived to tell about it.
If you come across any of these older recipes and you think, “Hmm. I wonder if I can cut the sugar down in any of these?” the answer is most likely yes! The treats will still be delicious and your family’s Christmas will still be merry.

You’ll want to pin this so you can make these treats from now until the new year! —>
Please leave a comment to tell me how long you’ve been reading here! Were any of you around when my boys were as little as that first Christmas picture?
