Christmas baking

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Well started with the baking, Stollens with cranberries and marzipan. I tend to nibble things as I cook, so I had an avocado before I started. High in calories but just really good for you, and filling. I am going ot give most of my baking away to freinds and neighbours, and will put a bit aside for Christmas too. Hopefully if I keep it out of sight I wont be so tempted to eat half a Stollen in one sitting. Well in theory anyway emoticon emoticon

    I have a box of brownies in the cupboard that keeps calling out my name. Right now I don't feel "sober" enough to attempt to make them...regardless of who I give them too.
I have a thrill just licking the bowl. Take care...

    Belinda and Gailruu, I baked 6 large stollens, and the looks on friend and neighbours faces when i presented them all wrapped and Christmassy; (well, priceless) ... bad news is, somehow, (accidentally?) i have eaten an entire stollen myself. emoticon this is not good, i know, but clearly baking is a major danger area for me.. good thing tomorrow is a new day

    Unfortunately, or maybe luckily, I have never liked baking, but I always admire people who do take the time to make those wonderful home made gifts for others.
It keeps the true spirit of the holiday alive.
That was a good idea you had to eat something healthy before you started.
Have a peaceful, low calorie day!
Hugs,

    I have not done any baking so far since the carb cravings were getting the best of me. I like to bake for friends and neighbors. I think I will do some half batches of cookies so I don't have a lot of them around the house.

    I joined SP.Com on Dec. 4, so I am a newbie too. My daughter joined right before me & I am counting on her show me the ropes. I am somewhat technically challenged. I am hoping that the meal plans will help me with my grocery lists. If I HAVE the right food IN the house, it is so much easier to stay on task & follow a plan. Maybe we Spark people can help each other...

    This website can definitely feel confusing in the beginning. Take your time to explore it. If you have any specific questions that you can't find answers to under the Help button at the top of your Spark page, you can email them or reach out to any of your spark friends. We are all here to help each other.

Hugs,
Belinda
