But honestly, I'll be back home by Wednesday night, and if anything goes the way I want it to, I'm going to bake everything in the universe. Evvvverrrrythiiing.
Well, okay, that's obviously an exaggeration, but there's a New Years Eve Party looming in the near future... and even though the hosts would probably be happier if I brought a gallon of alcohol, I'm using it as an excuse to make dozens of cookies. Because not only was that out-of-date cook book tempting me into a baking frenzy, but I also happened to have acquired a lot of nifty stuff for Christmas that I'm just dying to use. And since I don't have any baked goods to be showing off at the moment, I thought I'd share them with you.
First up is my brand new stand mixer!
(The one I'm reading with the Grinch above.) I don't know about you guys, but to me that sounded like a challenge. So expect a lot of cookie posts as well. :P
Mom even cleared out a whole bottom cabinet for all my pans and such, and I reorganized my baking drawer. So see? I need to bake, pronto. It's killing me.
I'll leave you all now with a picture of my lovely kitchen, since Steve thinks you guys need to know where all the baking (or in this case, not-baking) happens. So ta dah!
