stocking up...


It's getting to be that time of the year...

It won't be long now until the baking begins so I figured I may as well start stocking up.  The first thing in my pantry this year are walnuts, chocolate chips and butter.  My mom picked up a case of canned milk for her famous pumpkin pies.  What about you?  What will you stock up with for your holiday baking?

xo, Patty


  1. All of the above!
    Isn't it fun?
    I will be seeing my grandsons this weekend, and I plan to bake cookies.

    Enjoyed visiting Patty!

  2. Yep- I always start stocking up for Christmas and Holiday baking-which just happens to be one of my favorite things to do- xo Diana

  3. I always say "It's butter season!" during the holidays. I'll buy enough butter to last the year, if possible. It usually goes on super sale then.

  4. I thought about this as I was at the grocery store earlier today. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. I have some butter, some walnuts and some white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and raisins. Lots of sprinkles and cupcake/muffin liners. Think I'm OK with sugar, may need more flour and definitely more butter! And parchment paper. And quick cooking oats, and pecans. Need to shop! xo

  6. I picked up my walnuts and unsalted butter the last time I was at Costco, and a new to me type of condensed milk named, La Lechera, put out by Nestle....So much more to get too and will add to my shopping list as I decide on some new goodie recipes to try this holiday season...Can't wait. xo

  7. I've already started too! butter, brown sugar, white sugar and flour so far. We have also started restocking the chocolate chips and cocoa. I raided the stash to make chocolate chip cookies tonight:>)

  8. What a great seasonal post!!! Love baking this time of year! I'm already beginning to stock up too... Brown sugar, chocolate chips, (milk & dark), butterscotch chips. Vanilla extract and white chocolate bark. Marshmallows, evaporated and sweetened condensed milk among other yummiest like cinnamon sticks!!
    Happy baking!

  9. Hope you had a great day with your Mom!! I will be stocking up on canned pumpkin, sugar, nuts, white chocolate for dipping, And caramels, and crystal sugars, etc, etc, etc.....

  10. I already have. I stocked up on some sugar to start with. I keep a list, but have not yet looked at it.

  11. Stocking up on Andes Candies for my most requested frosted mint chocolate cookies . . .

  12. One of my favorite parts of the colder weather -- lots of baking. I'll stock up on flour, sugar, pumpkin, cranberries, chocolate chips, brown sugar, and vanilla. We go through all of these things quickly in the winter/holiday months! I get cranberries while I can, wash, halve, and freeze them. Then, they are available to me all winter long for my orange-cranberry bread!
