Christmas Cooking…

I baked like a madwoman on December 24th and 25th.

On Christmas Eve, I began with a request…banana bread muffins with cinnamon/sugar crumble

Mini-muffins for Ellie

Full-sized Rebel Alliance muffins for Ravi

Couldn’t resist when I was at a Williams Sonoma store in the US

I made cookies for Santa…chocolate candy cane cookies and gingerbread cookies

I didn’t just dip them in candy canes, but also other xmas themed sugary stuff.

Surprisingly, I think the dough was almost better than the cookies


I made a few gingerbread bears, but then sensed a disturbance in the force…

(otherwise known as I didn’t have Xmas themed cookie cutters and have been looking for an excuse to use my star wars cookie cutters).


On Christmas day, I made a full dinner…

Honeyed Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze


Parker House Rolls (they ended up being the most time consuming part of the day)

Just before I posted this, I made cinnamon rolls with the extra dough.

Sweet Potato and Marshmallow Casserole and Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes


There was also salad from a bag (gasp!) and steamed broccoli.


Entirely filling, entirely delish!


Tomorrow I’ll do a Christmas Post…but here’s a preview…

Here’s what happened after Hurricane Ellie met the presents under the tree…
