Let the baking begin!





A dog-eared, stained composition book, a stack of recipes printed off from the internet, loads of stockpiled ingredients and the weapons with which I do battle each year, and I am ready to begin the holiday baking. The madness in my kitchen is thankfully only an annual malady, but it is such that the kids may end up eating cereal for dinner if I'm in a frenzy...

  3. Whoa, you AMAZE me, woman!

    So, did you turn down the heat in your house so you can drink tea and Irish whiskey with me? ; )

  4. I try to make about cookie dough for about a minimum of 6 dozen of each type. The stars and snowflakes are of the same dough, so there are about 3 dozen of each.

    I give away a lot of cookies!

  5. O.W.: I always keep the house pretty cool and we dress warm and drink a lot of tea. I've been nursing the same bottle of Jamesons for years. For "medicinal purposes", you understand...!
