Tis the season to be... baking. Apparently in my house, this is what I am doing. I LOVE baking though so it makes the season so much more fun!!! I love to bake, cooking and I don't see eye to eye all the time but the baking concepts that's where I excell. I should have gone to school to be a baker, because I love working with dough and creating new desserts.
I made maple cinnamon buns this weekend. They were delicious. I like my cinnamon buns plan, meaning no nuts or raisons. But I like to experiment with differnt tastes and add things in that I think would be a little tasty. And the maple cinnamon buns were exceptionally tasty. I also made regular cinnamon buns and bread this weekend. I have my Great Grandma's bread recipe and it is a phenomenal recipe.
Adrian made chocolate chip cookies on Saturday. They were pretty tasty but I still think mine taste better. I may be a biased judge though.
The house smelled delicious all weekend. There is something completely soothing about the smell of baking bread. I am calmed down and relaxed whenever I can smell homemade bread. Even mass produced bread like at the big bakeries still has that main fresh bread smell and I love it!!
I will edit this post again to include some of the mouth watering pictures I took as well. Hopefully, tonight we will get our tree up and it will start to feel like Christmas. I am still waiting for the Christmas spirit to descend upon me, it's now two years and I am not feeling the Christmas spirit as I used to. This year is definitely better than last but not by much.
