Sugar overload can be epidemic at the holidays. But, it really isn’t Christmas without a few sweet treats.

Buche de Noel / Yule Log Cake

Years ago, I spent my junior year in college living and studying in France. It was most definitely a dream come true. While there I ate some of the best meals of my life and picked up some fun traditions in the process. One of those traditions is our family’s favorite Christmas cake, a buche de noel, or yule log cake.¬†While it looks very complex, it doesn’t have to be, especially if you follow these simple tips.

Here are some of our family’s other favorite desserts for the end of year celebrations:

Raspberry Cream Cups with Pretzels

Pretzel Berry Dessert

Spiced Pear Cake

Lemon Ginger Bars
