In The Kitchen For Christmas

Last Saturday was the big baking day.  My girls and I, along with Solanah and Dana, spent hours in the kitchen loving every minute of it.  We made; white apricot fudge, red velvet fudge, pistachio tart, scones, vegan cupcakes, chocolate pretzels, brownies and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  Needless to say I have some happy neighbors now that the goodies were given away.

A few days later the girls and I were in the kitchen again.  This time building gingerbread houses.
We are counting down to Xmas using the alphabet (started Nov. 30th) and it was G for gingerbread day.  We have done a for angel, b for baby, c for caramel apples, d for delicious (as seen above) e for elf, and f for fun.

Most recipes can be found on my Pinterest page


  1. The red velvet fudge! What a knockout! I'm always looking for foods that are as visually impressive as they are tasty, I DEFINITELY have to try that!

  2. Ooh it all looks SO fantastic! I can't wait to get into my Xmas baking!!

    There's a problem with my google accounts where sometimes it will permit me to leave comments and sometimes it doesn't. Alas, this is a time when it doesn't. I follow your Life in a Pink Tower blog and have a question for you on that. However, the gliche won't let me post there, so I write to you here.

    I just read your post on Godly Play. I can't find anything on the web about the book The Glorious Impossible by Madeleine L'Engle you mentioned from a Christian perspective.

    Can you tell me how closely the text follows the gospels versus Madeleine L'Engle's thoughts on Jesus and Christianity. I would really appreciate it!

    Thank you!
