We’re back from our first vacation in 2008 and boy, do I ever miss being in the kitchen. Not baking for a week is tough, but then again, we were at Disney World Orlando so who am I to complain?
Disney was great, even though a front arrived the day we did and the parks were windy and bone-chillingly cold. Based on all the “Hey y’alls!” and Texas logo shirts, I believe half of the crowd was from here. Our schools don’t start up until Jan. 8, so it would make sense — we’re all on the same family vacation schedule which makes for a loud but polite group. So despite the weather, we had tons of fun. I’ll try to post a few pictures today or tomorrow, but I need to head to the store and buy butter and flour…..oh, and food.
I think the first recipe this week will be Giada’s Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe is on Food TV, but I was reading an article about Giada in Redbook where she said the recipe was one of her favorites. I’m not exactly sure how I missed this one.
