Happy Holidays!

Since I've been slow in the kitchen this past week, I'm sharing with you some beautiful holiday cookies my cousin Rachael made. I was so impressed with the presentation I had to snap this photo, but honestly, their flavor and texture were equally impressive. They're sugar cookies with a lemon glaze and candied cranberries. Rachael is definitely a person I'd go into business with if I decided cookies were my calling. She's just amazing.

I consider myself more of a breads and cakes person. I did make a Dorie Greenspan Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread over the weekend and it was fabulous. It was also quick to make, as I whipped it up while my vegetarian chili was simmering. Got the recipe from one of my favorite food sites, Serious Eats.

But on to the really important stuff, I want to wish you a very Happy New Year!

I'm still working on a New Year's Resolution plan, but I already know one of the items on the list is to blog regularly. I look forward to documenting many baked goods and feeding them to others! The sooner I can unload excess on friends, the sooner I can turn to the next recipe. A person can only handle so many perishables at one time, especially with limited freezer space. And as I'm sure you'd agree, nobody likes a stale cookie!

i agree, stale cookies suck. unless of course they are those store bought ginger snaps that are hard as a rock. they are better if they are stale.

I would be happy to help you with any excess of baked goods you might find yourself burdened with.

I was lucky enough to eat the ginger chocolate chip cake and it was delicious!
