Christmas Baking…


I'm doing some
Christmas baking this week.

Yes, I know it's almost March.

But I like to bake, and so I tend to print and save quite a few
recipes as I stumble across them on the internet, in magazines or in my
hometown paper.

And today, as I was trying to make sense of all the papers in my
office, I realized that quite a few of the pages that I had to either file or
recycle were recipes.

So, I'm going to spend the next few weeks trying them and taste
testing them so I can decide which ones I should keep and which ones I should get
rid of.

I don't think
my family or friends are going to complain if I try a few new cookie and cake
recipes out on them over the next few days and weeks.

The downside of this of course, is that after a few weeks of
munching, I'm probably going to have to go downstairs and get on the treadmill
and uh, run.

Because by the time I finish testing the recipes I’ve saved it'll
almost be shorts and swimsuit season.

And after a month of baking I'm probably gonna need to either
exercise or start shopping for some bigger sized warm weather clothes.

And I hate shopping for bigger sizes.

  1. Ugh, this is happening to me too – I can’t seem to stop myself from collecting delicious dessert recipes, but already my pants are too tight, and GAH, it’s a crappy, endless cycle.
    And yet – the cookies are SO GOOD. What’s a woman to do?


  2. In the frenzy of pre-holiday baking, I often think, why don’t we do this sort of thing any other time of the year? And I seriously love the idea of test-driving recipes in advance of the season. Smart and delicious. 🙂
