Baking Day!

Oh my! We’ve spent the day baking and I am wiped! Each year I gather ingredients, and make a list of cookies to bake. And work a full day getting all the goodies made!

Here’s a list of what we made today:

So I just need to trim and add a binding – really it should be that simple but coming up with the time to myself has been a challenge. Day by day – right!? We are all feeling much better, thanks for all the caring words :)As you have probably gathered, I also love to bake! This is my favorite summer dessert, oddly enough today was the first time I have made it this summer. It could have something … Read More »
