I took the above photo on a drive this morning, the sun was lighting up Mt. Jefferson to the right of the old barn.
Hello all--happy new year! I hope it is going well for everyone. We have already been "snowed in" and had a big thaw with squishy mud! It was hazardous to get out. Excavation for landscaping is underway, but I have to catch all my house-building posts up to this point so more on that much later. I wouldn't mind more snow, it is just the aftermath of sinking 3" into the mud everywhere we walk that is not so fun! A week of sunshine is drying us out nicely.
I wanted to start the year's blogging with a cookbook review, as it was a good time to stay indoors and bake!
I was thrilled to be picked to receive a free copy of this book, The Best of British Baking: Classic Sweet Treats and Savory Bakes, to
review! I knew that in order to truly review it I would get to bake a lot of treats!
