... the Christmas baking and shopping, that is. I think. Wrapping and other food prep for the big day, not so much. I did a last baking blowout in the kitchen yesterday, and here's what resulted:

These little morsels of goodness are chocolate orange cookies, from the Moosewood Restaurant Book of Desserts. Orange zest in the crisp cookie, bittersweet chocolate glaze.

Chocolate babka bread, from Canadian Living magazine. And look at the cute loaf pan! Silicone-lined paper gift pans from President's Choice, they even come with red ribbon to tie around in a big bow. Which I'll do after I wrap it in plastic first. This is for a friend who's not quite into cooking the way I am. Pin It Now!

And that pan is just too adorable--Martha was even talking about it on her show yesterday! :)

Yummo! That bread looks divine! I can totally imagine dunking those cookies in my coffee too :o)

Pam said... you can bake too? I think a blog just might have been a very good idea for you so I can CASE some goodies! My eyes zoned in on that loaf pan! I haven't seen anything like it, but I'm sure going to look for them now!
