Production Line


I'm in full production mode now!
I love baking for the holidays - 
although I've got to admit I'd still rather be
up to my elbows in a dye bath!

As you can see, I baked most of my
Christmas Coffee Breads yesterday.
They are now neatly packaged and in the freezer
 awaiting tomorrow's deliveries to neighbors and friends.


Here's a little plate of my Springerle cookies.
They really do spring up, as the name implies.
Interestingly enough, just after I published
my last blog post, I read this article
in the Wall Street Journal.
My Springerle recipe came from my beloved old
New York Times Cookbook, 
but next year, I will try the recipe in the above article.
Right after I finishing wrapping our gifts,
I'm going to tackle the Molded Gingerbread Cookie recipe
in the Wall Street Journal.  
Sounds yummy!

Jeannie shared a delicious sounding Julekage
recipe with me.
It has cardamom in it, which is always a plus in my book!
I hope to try it tomorrow.

We enjoyed a short but sweet visit from 
Charlie
over the weekend.
He arrived, ate dinner, went to a party,
came back and crashed, and then joined us for
breakfast on Sunday before he headed back home.
ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!
But he was cute!



peace
