December 2011--The Lost Month

Please don't ask me what I did this month. I might tell you. And then you'll be sorry. I know there was a lot of driving, a little Disneyland, a wedding, a little Christmas, and lot of illness. Plus a bunch more stuff. Even with all of that I baked (but obviously didn't diligently blog about or photograph):

2 loaves of Whole Wheat Bread

Still to bake before this wild month ends:

challah (for egg nog french toast, naturally)

Hopefully the addition of these last two projects will bring health to our house in time for the new year.

TGIP Rating--Chocolate Whoopie Pies--which I didn't even blog about in detail--KEEPER. They turn out more perfectly when baked at sea level than they do at my altitude. Which means I need to make some alterations. Which I will. Because they are super delicious. I prefer them mini-sized. Regular size is kind of like a giant, super-sweet hamburger. Which sounds good in theory, but in reality is JUST TOO MUCH.

Next up: Burnt Sugar Bundt Cake. There's nothing not good about this recipe. I can't wait to try it.

P.S. Santa brought me this for Christmas. I was a better girl than I even realized this year! Double the ovens means double the baking. Or the same amount of baking in half the time. I'm thinking, if nothing else, I can bake a pie and a loaf of bread at the same time. Which is good for everyone.
