I was going to do my usual "Three Things" post but with all the pretty things I got for Christmas and my birthday earlier this month I decided to add two more items to the list. There are many more lovely new things in my possession, of course / I'm afraid, but I had to draw a line somewhere ...
Now this is what I call a slow start into the new year. Nearly half of January has passed already and I'm on my second blog post! Well, it's been busy at our quarters in the last couple of weeks, what with my birthday celebrations and all ... And now I'm finally ready to embrace life at its usual pace :)
For a proper start, I'll make your mouth water with some of the Christmas & birthday goodies we made. As usual, I'm still not one for carrying my little camera around the house and taking photos of everything I do, so here's a very limited selection of our makings:
I always make shortbread for Christmas, following the above recipe. Always a success :)
Another batch was a chocolatey one - one half of the rice flour substituted by cocoa powder. Yummy!
The ones below are seriously the best biscuits ever. My little girl (with a brand new hair do) has been a busy bee :) And a great helper!
Next project and more help - I love making yummy treats with my girl!
The biscuits turned out absolutely gorgeous - and delicious. Looking forward to this year's Christmas :)
(P.S.: an Easter Bunny has hopped onto our plate of Christmas biscuits - no wonder, considering the weather!)
I hope you've had a soft and gentle start into the new year, my dear blogging friends. Our family spent the New Year's Eve at our place with some closest friends, talking, playing games and having a wonderful time.
Yesterday I celebrated my birthday, which was another good start of the new year :) I got many lovely presents - blog posts to follow!
