This week’s Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge had me thinking outside of the lens. How could I capture white in Florida?
Typically the only white to be found in fall in Florida is the sugary white sand at our beaches or the puffy white clouds against our cerulean skies. Other than that, we don’t see a whole lot of white in these parts.
But then, with Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas coming soon, it is baking season much like every other part of the country. So, we’re seeing a lot of white in our kitchen these days.
Every year my mom sister, my girls and I plan a marathon Christmas cookie baking day and we just nailed down a date for this year’s cookie craziness. Since it’s only a couple weeks away, I need to start planning my cookies and making sure I have enough ingredients in the pantry, which led to me flipping through the pages of my favorite cookbook (the third tattered copy and very loved Joy of Cooking) for my favorite cookie recipes.
Of course, Peppermint Bark will make Christmas cookie the list again.
Do you have a favorite Christmas cookie or treat you bake and share every year?
On December 1, a few blogger friends and I will be hosting The Ultimate Virtual Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap and you‘re cordially invited!
