I love baking

I have been on a baking streak ever since Thanksgiving.  I have gone through at least four pounds of butter, more than five pounds of flour, definitely 8 pounds of sugar, and two bottles of vanilla.  It is an understatement when I say that I love baking.  Baking brings me peace, it lets me think and reflect, it gives me purpose.  If I am tense, I would rather bake than get a massage.  I wouldn't be able to lay still on a table that long...ha!  My husband's work has been the recipients of most of these baked goods, but I did make cookies for Elexis' teachers this year.  Now for some pictures...

Gingerbread men, elves, and bears

I also made no bake cookies, double chocolate chip cookies, regular chocolate chip cookies, and gluten free chocolate chip cookies.  Now I am itching to bake again. :)
