|"Popette's" and my star biscuits|
Last year was the first year I didn't get to bake my shortbread. Having a newborn and toddler to look after was still new to me, so I didn't find the time to make it. I was amazed of how much I missed being in the kitchen and spending that time baking those yummy buttery creations.
Watching shows like "MasterChef" and "My Kitchen Rules" has got me spending even more time in the kitchen baking cakes, biscuits, muffins, cupcakes and banana bread for catch-ups with Mums group, morning or afternoon tea with my parents or just for the 3 of us....but not every week otherwise I would be the size of a house!
I really enjoyed spending time with "Popette" in the kitchen last week making the "Shortbread Star Biscuits" and watching the enjoyment on her face in cutting out the biscuits, and later eating one of her creations.
I am grateful that baking allows me to make something out of a few cups of ingredients, which brings
delight to whoever is eating it (maybe not all the time...think of rock salt in Banana Bread...not good!)
What do you love to bake?
