In Dec..it's either freezing w/ bright blue skies and sunshine..or milder..and grey..milder meaning 20's lol..
So fairy lights and cocooning indoors ..baking or painting or wrapping are favorite sports here:)
It's fine indoors or out with no news on:(
Had to show you my Advent Calendar..Paris Letters..Paris Breakfasts..look at her latest subscription lette.It's Le Louvre..she designed and painted this absolutely genius Advent Calendar.
I am sure I have shown you my wall of fame:) I will again..soon..it's almost wallpapered with her letters:) I save them.:)
Made a new no-knead all my fellow no-kneaders,cinnamon and raisin..you can find the recipe here and I am here to help if you need it.You all know Isabelle Lambert..our famous QC cookbook/lovely person author.! It's a keeper.
I would recommend proceeding as I do for Ricardo's no-knead..as I really have trouble w/ the floured tea towel.I had to throw it away.It does not work for me.I am not a pastry/bread chef..she is:)
Operate the way you are used to..:)
My cake is a Bailey's Coco cake..dense..not very moist..perhaps because I halved it..still turned out ok..That little house took forever lol.
This little cutie and his mom popped by for tea/treats/hot chocolate..
Magic bars ..were the treat of the day..a classic since the 60's here..
I have been making them since 1974.
Like Nanaimo Bars..you're sure to land in a QC home around the holidays and find them gracing the sweet table.
That Vignette above with the very mini crocheted tea cup..was in a Christmas box from a dear dear penpal/friend.
My longest one.
You can have a long long standing one if you start NOW at my age:)
Noah had been asking his mom about Santa..children had started to talk a lot about NO Santa..he asked his mom again..so she told him..in the most gentle way possible..and he cried.
I had tears when she told me.
"But what about the cookies he eats?"
So many questions.
So few yrs at being so innocent♥
