When you get back to OH, you can bake to your hearts content. You will like me, have your kids to give all those goodies to. I could spend 24 hours of baking, and my SIL would be very happy to eat it all up in one sitting. Right now, The Pirate tell me that not one goodie leaves this house unless he gets the first helping. He tells me it is for quality control. Then hubby will be able to do your own quality control.

I just put a loaf of 'no-knead' bread into the hot box.
This time I added grated Grana Padano and Rosemary
MAN!The house smells heavenly!
I should put the dish of butter out to soften

I love bread pudding, but don't eat it often. I should make some.

I have to make the Hershey Chocolate Cake for Christmas Dinner. I really am not in the mood to bake. But it is for family. Oh well!

Our House Smells Fabulous!

This is the second day in a row that I baked all day long,
REALLY!

I started today as well as yesterday
at 9am and finished up with
all of the washing up at 5pm.

Yesterday was cookies, Land-O-Lakes Jumbo Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
(they need to sit in the `fridge for 48 hours prior to baking)
Quakers Oats Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie Bars with dried Cranberries added
Hershey's Kiss Candy Cane Blossoms (a bust! I'll never do that again)
and lastly Hershey's Very Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

Today it was Rum Cakes
my GGMa's recipe, written in her own hand, Ginger Bread that kinda morphed.
I haven't made the Ginger Bread in so long, I forgot that it does make a rather large batch of batter; so I wound up making it into a loaf to take to a dinner party that we are invited to tomorrow evening and a dozen cupcakes to share with the neighbors (are you starting to get the feeling that the folks that live around us get loads of goodies from our house?)

BUT WAIT!
Then for dinner tonight, I'm making homemade pizza, MMM

Baking off some of the cookie dough that I made last night. We have a friend that owns the game store that Rob goes to and she adores my salty sweet butter pecan cookies, so I'm sending her a bx of those. Tomorrow evening I'll bake off more for the neighbors.

Butter pecan cookies, oh my! Have you posted the recipe? Sounds wonderful.

It's a King Arthur recipe, here it is. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recip...cookies-recipe. The sugar salt coating makes them so crispy and the cookie itself is nice and chewy.

Now I'm doing repeats. Today I made a second batch of Toll House Cookies. Everyone likes them so I can never have too many. I think cookies are done now for this year.
