Where I live, it has been snowing for the past two days. Not a dainty white dusting that will soon melt away into a memory, but 6-inches of “winter is here and it’s not going anywhere” snow. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to shut out the world and bake. I will give you three guesses what I ended up doing most of this weekend.
Today is the 1-week anniversary of this blog. I know this is only the beginning, but I am enjoying it more every day and I think it’s the start of something wonderful. Here’s a recap of this first week:
What I posted:
What I read: I started and finished “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon. I recommend this for anyone looking for something a little bit different, or anyone interested in understanding the mind and thought process of a teenager with autism/Asberger’s trying to solve a mystery. Yesterday I started reading “Cleopatra: A Life” by Stacey Schiff. I don’t read very much non-fiction, but I am fascinated by Cleopatra so this one looks promising.
What I Pinned:
- Baked Hummus and Spinach Dip by Naturally Ella.
SometimesOften I like to have appetizers for dinner, and this one looks particularly scrumptious.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies from the View from Great Island. Was there ever a more perfect pair than peanut butter and chocolate?
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Aioli from life/style 365. I didn’t discover I liked Brussels Sprouts until a year or two ago. I am now trying to make up for lost time.
- Eggnog Crepes from Tartine and Apron Strings. As soon as there is snow on the ground, it’s eggnog season. (It’s always crepe season.)
What I dunked in my coffee: Chocolate Chip Anise Biscotti. These are pure happiness. There’s still lots of Sunday left for you to make them!
Until next time,
