I am addicted to sugar.
I told my naturopath today that I totally get how addicted people just can’t stop. I mean if an alcohol addiction is anything like my sugar addiction…I get it. I can stop for awhile, but then, as soon as I have a taste, I’m back at it.
Of course, this time of year doesn’t help, does it? I’m pretty un-Martha-like but I thought I’d detail my baking.
First, we tried a sugar cookie recipe. We liked it and I am going to make a huge batch now and do painted cookies. We tried a few with some success, so next Saturday, we will make a HUGE BATCH! (click on any photo to enlarge) We are going to be painting them!
Then, J’s request is always for a soft ginger cookie. Also a new recipe which got a little too flat, but the flavor is good!
mmmmm….brownies….the rest kind of crumbled when I took it out of the pan, so you know what that means..! I had to eat it.
I haven’t cut into these but I was proud of the end result. Some kind of citrus loaf with a sugar lemon sauce poured on top. Oh my..I can imagine what these taste like but they were so pretty I didn’t cut into them! (THIS is a photo worth enlarging!)
and of course, Grandma’s buns. Yum.
oh yeah…after all that, this is all I was left with..! I did a pretty good job of keeping up with the cleaning as I went. You can see by the soft light cascading in the south window that all of this really didn’t take me all day! Ignore the burnt pancakes from breakfast!
