Baking, cooking, and otherwise merry making in the kitchen...
This used to be my domain. But in recent years Mr. CTL has really gotten involved with the whole candy making, cooking baking tradition. I really love it, though, because now I have help cleaning up the kitchen when we are through!
Traditionally we make
Spritz (I make dozens and dozens of these so I can use different tips)
Pretzel Rods (I get all excited about the various sprinkles I am going to use!)
Cookies (this usually changes every year so I can try new things)
CrockPot Candy (yummy!)
Some kinds of breads (last year I made gumdrop bread and as pretty as it was, I didn't think it was very good tasting)
(not my photo!)
And mini bundt cakes for the neighbors. These vary in flavors, too, as I hear about new ones I want to try!
This tradition of baking and candy making was disrupted one year due to our daughter's upcoming wedding. I remember I made the spritz and the rum cake and called it a year!
I am so excited to hear about your baking traditions. I always gather new ideas for my Christmas by reading your blogs. Please let me know when you are posting new recipes!
