all about....

Hello, Saturday. Sunny, cold, eight inches of snow on the ground, cookies for my breakfast, Saturday.
Brian mentioned that he made these, and the next thing you know, I was too.  Another slice and bake...love that.  My kids think the best part is when they bite into a chip.  Clearly I did not put enough chips in them.  Also, my dough was a little too crumbly.  I ended up adding 13 tablespoons of butter instead of 11.
I also had a wonderful surprise last month that I have been meaning to mention.  Carolynn sent a box filled with the most amazing things. Homemade cookies in a vintage tin, homemade soaps (and the supplies to make our own felted soap), a knit washcloth, scrubbies that I LOVE and stitch markers.  All made by her.  Along with a signed Stephanie Pearl-McPhee book and some lovely buttons.  Thank you so much Carolynn!
Can you believe tomorrow is February 1st?! 
Enjoy your weekend, everyone.

I'm in the mood of a little baking today, myself. Cold wintry days were made for spending a day in the house baking, knitting, watching movies, letting kids paint your nails.

Hmmm, so now I need to start keeping a stash of bittersweet chocolate, eh? I have added cocoa powder to my cupboards, much to my martha stewart-y sister's delight, for repeated makings of alton's cocoa mix, which has been much to my kids' delight...
My giant batch of sugar cookies is almost gone, perhaps these will be next...
Back to the knitting!

Well, considering that I have been a day off all week, I am quite suprised that tomorrow is Feb 1st!

But, being the warm weather lover that I am, I am always ready to see January leave.

MadMad said...

Oh, those look yummy! And well, if it's for such a good cause as world peace, I suppose I can break my diet. Not that it was working anyway...

Those cookies look great!

I bought the same exact heart shaped buttons yesterday for my February Lady Sweater that I'm starting today! That's just crazy!!!

Caroline said...

Mmmm cookies are good any time. So, I need to think about this. Should I go out in the yard (sorry, I'm not meaning to rub it in..but it is 60 degree outside) and work, or should I bake cookies. I suppose I could do both:)

Nothing beats cookies designed to promote world peace! Everyone should do their part and bake a batch...or two!! Thanks for sharing.

Seanna Lea said...

I did a lot of baking over the weekend. It's a great antidote for the winter blahs!

I haven't made those cookies, but I did make maple fudge cookies with some of the leftover fudge I had lying around.

Cinnamonamon said...

*blush* I'm just glad you liked it! I didn't make the soap or the candle, though...I just have a rockin' farmers market. ;)

Thank you for the wise critique. Me & my neighbour have been getting ready to do a little analysis about that. We received an excellent guide on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I used to be searching for a protracted time.This made very glad! Anyway, in my language, there aren't a lot good source like this.

I've to say, I dont know if its the clashing colours or the unhealthy grammar, but this blog is hideous! I imply, I dont want to sound like a know-it-all or something, however may you will have possibly put slightly bit more effort into this subject. Its really interesting, however you dont characterize it properly in any respect, man. Anyway, in my language, there aren't much good source like this.
