A baker at heart, I couldn’t help but sculpt some tiny clay versions of my favorite holiday treats 💕 (I’m also a homemade buttermint addict, but wasn’t super sure those would translate into a recognizable charm to anyone but me?!?)
Gingerbread snowflakes, handmade one by one, each unique in all the world 💕
If I had to pick one cookie to eat for the rest of my life it would be shortbread, sugar topped shortbreads 💕
You’re invited: Red hots & jingle bells mandatory 💕
Super limited production (only 3 ever!) of these crazy brandy butter holly topped peppermint puddings as cupcakes? 100% SWEET, but also (sadly) 100% NOT A THING or EDIBLE! 💕
I’ve always made pancakes from scratch, mostly because that’s how my mom showed me and that’s how I taught Lex. But I’ve noticed something happening over the years, we were having less and less pancake meals, and I was really missing them. It seemed such a hassle to drag out all the ingredients, mix & measure, and stand at the stove flipping cakes for years, then the other day while at Costco I saw a 10lb bag of pancake mix, I bought it ..I’m not saying I’ll never make pancakes from scratch again (because oatmeal pancakes with butter, peanut butter and syrup are the stuff) but I love that I can mix & griddle up a single cake in about minute on a lazy afternoon! Not sure why I never thought to buy a ready made mix before or why this revelation/experiment started with an unmanageable industrial food service sized 10lb bag, but here we are and it’s kind life changing.
Also a little restock of the yarn sniffer badges, because I’m keeping my face buried in all the yarn. It’s been a pickling and fermented foods/drinks kind of month here and literally everything else smells like some combination of hops, vinegar, dill and garlic. Sorry if you bump into me, because I’m 86% brine at the moment (Jason’s at least 47% beer, but will say he’s only about 13% haha). Also, also you know how everyone’s house has a smell, along with their belongs (like my mom or sister will give me something and eyes closed I can tell which is which just by smell ..not bad smells, just their smells) and I have always wondered what is our smell, I’m not entirely sold on being the fricken pancake pickle beer house!?! …I mean maybe that’s no so bad?
