Plain and simple. I absolutely LOVE baking. I'm in the zone, my element, heaven, when my hands are caked with butter, sugar and flour.
So it seemed like a pretty simple challenge to set for myself for this year:
Bake something new every weekend.
Sounds easy enough, but between work and living with no proper grocery store in the small town that I do, it's actually more difficult than you'd think.
This weekend --the first weekend of 2013-- I got a bit of a slow start on this challenge. I only managed to complete one new bit of baking. (I word it that way because I still managed to slip in one other recipe... left-over-eggnog pudding! But I don't count it as new because pudding is hardly new!!)
|Galette des rois and holy are they yummy!! Mine aren't nearly as pretty as the site I found the recipe on!|
So please do me a favour and go over to LRF and make these delicious little flaky bundles of almond joy for yourself at home and thank @SandeeA for the amazing recipe!!
|My little baking buddy, Cocoa (apt name...) She helps so I never need to sweep after baking!|
