the first batch of cookies for holiday baking were dead simple: golden syrup cookies. much like honey snaps, the golden syrup makes it taste a little more… richer. the cranberries were an afterthought. i think i’ll add more to the batch i bake tomorrow morning.

shelling for baking

the grocery stores are hopeless cases for pistachios. when i have the time i go to my favourite nut shop at the farmer’s market, but as usual harris farm came up trumps this evening when other’s shelves were sans the green gems. tonight i made pistachio and lemon icebox cookies for gift giving. i adapted a recent gourmet recipe for pistachio cranberry cookies and will use the dried cranberries for something else. perhaps cranberry gingerbread.

seeing stars

stars at the window

i’ve never been a big fan of christmas lights, but this year i had the urge to buy some for our living room window. i bought these from ikea last weekend, white star lights. we were meant to hang them up last night, but we were exhausted/lazy. this morning i was woken by L at 6:30 who had stuck on some 3M clips and hung up the lights. they look quite sweet, especially this afternoon with grey skies and the pitter patter of rain.
