Cookies are such a big part of the holidays for me. I love making a festive array and creating a cookie platter for guests to enjoy… And of course you need to have something come Christmas Eve, for the big guy in red! I hear he’s partial to the homemade ones *shhh* 😉
Halloween is fast approaching! Have you chosen your costume and stocked up on candy yet?… I haven’t dressed up since I was a kid. And these days my participation ends the moment I plunk that carved pumpkin in front of the house. Then I bunker down in the basement, letting my Mom ooh and ahh over all the little ghosts and ghouls. That being said, any excuse to bake! Right?! 😉
Last fall, I posted a cookie recipe. At that time, we had just moved and I was in the midst of unpacking. Still hadn’t seen most of my baking tools and the only photography equipment I could locate was the camera. Friday was fast approaching and I had not even started my blog post. Panic was setting in… In retrospect, I could have just skipped that week and probably no one would have even noticed. But instead I decided to used a “filler” recipe. Something quick, easy, and one I knew well. Brown Sugar Banana Crinkle Cookies (perhaps you saw them).
When I was a kid, my favourite lunch box find was a chocolate chip cookie. It was unimaginable to me, that someone (child or otherwise) could possibly prefer something with raisins *insert scrunchy face here*. Even today (knowing fully well that some people actually do), I find the concept difficult to wrap my head around… So it’s ironic that I would find myself partnered with someone who was, and still is, one of those raisin lovers.
Do you use Pinterest? I swear, I could get lost in there for hours! One minute I’m checking out the latest in DIY deodorants (and yes, I totally make my own), and the next thing I know, I’m being sucked into the vortex of holistic home remedies! That’s why I limit myself, just enough time to get some “pinspiration”, but not enough time to wonder what happened to my day.
