Kelli inspired me to try this recipe for No Knead Bread. It really is an easy recipe but you do have to plan ahead because there is a 12-18 hour initial slow rise and then a 2 hour rise after letting it rest for 15 minutes. However, due to the slow rise, it has a bit of a sourdough taste and and the crust is excellent!
The kids & I were doing so last minute Christmas shopping and they convinced me to buy this gingerbread house kit. I forgot that 90% of the set up is parent related. It did turn out really nice.
And, we made Christmas cookies. My neighbor who doesn't cook started making cookies yesterday afternoon while I was there so I "helped" make the dough. After it chilled, she sent 1/2 the dough home with Hannah so we could make some today.
Off to visit Santa this afternoon.
