With less than a week until Christmas, PartySugar and I were busy getting together our gifts for the holidays. The biggest issue? We thought our homemade peppermint bark, sweet and spicy pinenut brittle, and vanilla hot chocolate mix were so tasty it was hard not to keep everything for ourselves.

When we weren't cooking, we took time to reflect on the year: your favorites, our favorites, and the biggest food newsmakers of the year. Were you around to feel our year-end cheer? Find out when you take our quiz.
