Bake Fest 2011

 It’s tradition that the women in the family get together a few days before Christmas and bake the crap out of my mom’s kitchen.  Although we were missing my oldest sister very  much.  Read previous post about her baby having surgery.

Everything is from scratch and the treats are fabulous if I do say so myself.

We bake all day and to the dismay of the men in the family, give away 90% of what we’ve created.  I love it.

  

And we had two extra helpers this year.  Munchkin wasn’t quite sure about the Lemon Ricotta cookie dough.  She didn’t like it.  Don’t mind creepster dog in the background.  I’m sure he was hoping she’d drop some.

We listened to some wonderful music of course and also some not-so-wonderful music. Let’s just say Justin Bieber’s “Little Drummer Boy” is…well…completely and utterly the WORST.  There should never be rapping in Christmas music.  Never ever.  NEVER. 

   

                                  

The spread.  We had:

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

Fudge

Gingersnaps

Almond Poppy Seed Bread

Cocoa Gingerbread Brownies

Cheeseballs

Mint Brownies

Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

I’m lacking on the other recipes as they’ve been in our family for years and I can’t remember where they came from, so I’ll have to scan them and add later.  Because believe me, you’ll want them.

Leo is too hilarious in that pic. What a creeper.

P.S. The almond bread is from OBB. You should know that, come on now.

So sad I missed this. I semi-considered flying out just for that day. Maybe next year I will.

Leo is a character.
