I am not a big baker. I like to cook, but baking has never been my thing. I can’t stand that every measurement had to be exactly correct and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to throw something out because it came out horrible.
Yet, once a year when the holidays roll around, I dust off my measuring cups and my rolling pin and spend one entire day baking up a storm in the effort of gifting some homemade goodies to friends.
Today was my baking day. And oh, did I bake. All day.
I made cranberry-orange bread:
Thyme & sea salt crackers (they’re already in the wrapping):
There are a few more goodies we made as well.
Bags are packed (decorated by Maddie and Luke) and ready to be delivered tomorrow:
I’ve enjoyed my day of baking, and I’m thankful for the fun we had making all these goodies. I’m also thankful that I probably will not be baking again until next year =-)
