I have written up a few posts now and not really gotten around to actually putting them up, but it is the holiday season I'm told time to be surrounded by good things and people who have loved you and supported you unconditionally through the past year so in the spirit of that I am making an effort! .
This year seems to have flown by .... what did you do last Christmas.. who did you spend it with..where were you ? Sometimes it seems like all a blur.
Do you remember that excitement of rushing over to family and loved ones or waking up early morning to open your presents under a tree covered in tinsel and beautiful lights .
When you want to make Christmas special you tend to go all out.Last year I made all the traditional stuff breudar , love cake which thanks to a faulty oven resulted in a not so great love cake,which was a bit disappointing as I was trying to make the day just perfect it was the first time I had attempted either of them so nevertheless was proud of the fact that I managed to try out my mums recipes at least .Oh and let's not forgot the yummy Christmas cookies with colourful icing and sprinkles who doesn't love being gifted a tin of home made Christmas cookies.
This year I thought that I might do something a little different . I have been playing with the idea of red velvet cookies based on a recipe I found on the blog Cooking Classy , they seemed perfectly Christmas like .They didn't turn out exactly as planned humidity and icing sugar not a great combination,but they taste yum and my whole apartment was filled with the most enticing smells of freshly baked cookies Nothing beats walking though the door and being welcomed by that !
