Speaking of coconut – I’m making a coconut cake for Christmas Eve this year and scrolling through these Christmas Cakes for inspiration. Coincidentally these images are also setting me up for Christmas Eve tears when I fail to make something as dainty and whimsical.
I ordered Christmas pajamas that I didn’t need earlier this week. But I can picture myself wearing my pajamas and eating these brown sugar walnut rugelah so it appears my purchase has been justified…
Whoopie pies have a special place in my heart/childhood and I’m keen to try this gingerbread version.
In my dreams, I am the type of person who wraps gifts perfectly and ties them with mistletoe and good time management. In reality, I often throw things into gift bags at the last minute and people forgive me because I bake them pecan buns. Or at least I plan to.
Cocktail of the weekend
True story, 99% of christmas cocktails have cranberries in them. In an effort to branch out, here is a pomegranate rosemary spritzer. It could probably also be made with cranberries.
