a wrap up of winter holiday baking!
green tea shortbread cookies a la smitten kitchen‘s recipe for a family christmas dinner :)
The tin is something old that i had been using to hold my daughter’s toys lol, and i got those CUTE animal shaped cookie cutters from Marukai
salty honey pie and honey roasted chai almonds from a la Joy the Baker‘s site :3 for New Years!!
honey almonds laying flat to cool <3
and now packed into tubs for transport and gifting!
what a pretty pie :3
the pie is all done! (even if a bit overbaked :P) and covered in pretty white flakes of kosher salt
What else have i done this winter holiday break? Winter Holiday Clean Sweeping! oh yeah, washed up the blinds (wet towel wiping), vacuumed & mopped everywhere, and FULLY cleaned the kitchen & bathrooms. then worked on knitting while my daughter played with other kiddies :)
see, i soaked these overnight in my special mix of home made orange enzyme cleaner (there are SO many sites on this, i just picked the first url i found on google), water, vinegar and baking soda
it Really got some gunk off as you can see by how Dark that water got
yay to initializing this site!!! (adding this to what i did during the “winter holidays”)
listening to Dir en Grey – Dum Spiro Spero :3 it had been a while … think i’v been missing them
