Holiday Gifts Galore

Hey folks.  I been busy.  Busy making these lovely little jars of happy.  And baking.  Right now my house smells like a gigantic carrot bundt cake.  I wish my house WAS a gigantic carrot bundt cake.  Breakfast in bed?  No.  Breakfast IS bed.  Perfect.

So I think this is a really great Christmas/Hanukkah/YaKnow/TheOneWithThePole gift!  Go out and get yourself some mason jars and fill them up with dry goods for your favorite cookie recipe.  Include the recipe with the gift so your gift receivers know what the heck to do with the stuff.  Put some pretty do-dads all over the jar.  SMILE!  Give it to someone!  This is so much fun!  We all really like each other!  Look at all that smiling!

Now ain’t that just a thing of beauty?

Happy Holidays!!!

So Christmas Happened

I was around for it.

So were these guys:

Gingerbread Fellas

They weren’t too happy about their fate but that’s what you get for being delicious.

This stuff was around too:

Orange Cranberry Nut Bread

I felt very Martha using the bakery mini-loaf sleeves and name tags.  When I set about to making these, I realized the only appropriate baking oil I had on hand was coconut oil, so I went for it.  There was definitely a coconutty flavor to the bread, but it worked!  Like a tropical holiday vacation in your mouth!

I’ve been making a lot of soup recently and doing a lot of roasted vegetables with different marinades.  One of these days I’ll catch up on my posts.  Well.  Probably not.
