Right now, I have bread baking in the bread machine, so when I look at these cookie pictures, its like I can smell them.
These are some of the prettiest cookies I have ever made. I don’t usually have the best luck with cookie molds, but I followed the directions on this one exactly, and they came out perfectly the first time! Perfect for Christmas, and even pretty enough to give as a gift.
Something about holiday season makes me want to do puzzles. So instead of a dining table right now, we have a puzzle table.
We munched on a loaf of pumpkin bread all weekend. It made the house smell like a holiday. We also spent a lot of weekend time simmering chili, eating cookie dough, and watching football. What have you been up to?
We grew our very first eggplant! And its a beauty.
Our wee little eggplant wasn’t quite big enough for a fancy recipe, so we settled on making some eggplant “chips” to share. We loosely used this recipe, but made up our own spice mixture. Then we ate them up with a side of tacos! Hope the plant grows another one soon!
I didn’t spend a whole lot of time reading on screens this week, due to my cold. I did read To Kill A Mockingbird, which is one of my very very favorites. So my recommendations for the weekend are to drink lots of water, read a good book, and try a new recipe. Have a good one, my friends.
Bundt cakes are one of the scariest cakes, because of the pan. Mixing it up just requires you to follow the directions. Easy enough. But you can follow every direction for preparing the pan, and there is still the heart stopping moment when you turn it over, praying out loud that the sucker will just slide right out.
I flipped this one over, took a time out before I got too frustrated, and I would say 98% finally came out perfectly. The 2% was thankfully more cosmetic than structural, so you can’t even notice. Going into the win column.
