While we’re waiting for the challenge to begin, I’ll tell you about a lil’ project from the holidays. About a week before Christmas we had a big snowstorm here in Boston. A real one, not like this past week where we were prepared by the news media for a blizzard and barely half an inch fell- no, this was for real, howling wind, huge snowdrifts, what better than to spend the day inside baking?
Not having a ton of extra $$ for presents for my extended family, I decided to bake and make everyone small goodie bags. I spen the snowy weekend in my kitchen baking 6 different types of cookies (I guess 5 since there was a small disaster involving a very difficult Martha recipe that ended up in the trash). It was a long day of baking and a long week of assembly, but in the end, the result was festive and pretty.
