Junk Drawer Friday!

Royal Baking Powder

Happy Friday, everyone!  What are your plans?

I’m going to be baking, baking, baking.  My mom used to bake for days around Christmas and give our closest friends theses elaborate plates of cookies to nosh on over the holidays.  So – for the first time – I’m trying to do it, too, just because it makes me feel close to her (though all of the recipes I chose could be made by a goat – nothing too hard).  Wish me luck – hope I don’t burn down the house!

In case you’re standing in neverending lines to buy your last few Christmas presents this weekend – here’s some fun reading to help you kill time!
