Anyway, this is my baking season. In the past few years, I've thrown some mean holiday parties. And I've started giving friends and family holiday baskets of delicious baked goods. So I spend a good amount of time in the kitchen during this part of the year.
Last year's spread in San Francisco...
|Fresh baked bread, chocolate ginger cookies, cupcakes...|
|And gingerbread men!|
Here's what I'm planning to make (with recipes coming to you soon!):
Martha Stewarts' Chewy Chocolate-Gingerbread cookies
Gingerbread men to decorate (Can you tell I love ginger?)
Candy cane cookies
Chai Pumpkin Spice Thumbprints
Seasonal bread of some sort
Perhaps some jam-filled cookies, with the jam I made this summer...
Likely these Cranberry Crumble Bars which I made this week. So good.
And anything else I discover before then!
And with that in mind, let's get to the first Hungry Hydrologist giveaway! To win a Lindsey Original Holiday Basket, comment below about the worst holiday present you've ever received. You have until Sunday night to comment and then I will choose a winner randomly (unless there is an obvious worst-present-ever winner). Good luck!
