Happy Monday! I’m slowly easing back into the swing of things with my right hand. Last week I received a custom splint and started my PT, so I’m moving in the right direction. It’s been 3 weeks since my surgery and I’ve been itching to get back into the kitchen and bake! With all the new cookie cutters that I designed earlier this year, it’s been on my list of to do’s to try them out.
During the holiday season, there’s nothing I love more than hosting and entertaining, and when I’m entertaining, having a few tiny treats on the menu is an absolute must. A must, because miniature and one-bite items are easy for guests to enjoy, and much less guilty because of their small size. Not to mention adorable! So yes! When it comes to entertaining, mini is the new black in my opinion and these Lemon Cardamom donuts that I made with my mini pan, are a new favorite. And since Christmas fast approaching, whipping up a batch of these less guilty treats, dressed up with posh embellies, seemed oh so necessary.
One of the projects I’ve been working on for what seems like months now, is updating my Etsy shop with new products. This has been a long time in the making, as my girls and my family always come first, but after many long nights and early mornings, I’m thrilled to share with you the latest additions to my shop in the form of Posh sprinkles. Considering that I’m already selling specialty baking products, this seemed like the natural progression, but these aren’t just your ordinary sprinkles! I’ve created them in trendy colors and special packaging ideal for simple and modern storage solutions, as you will see below!
I’m so happy the weekend is here! Both my girls have been sick so it’s been quite an exhausting few days. Now that they’re getting better, things can slowly start getting back to normal around here which means a little spare time for me…I think I’ve earned it. First on the to do list: Make and photograph the popcorn I spoke of in my previous post.
Chocolate and pretzels equal a heavenly combination of sweet and salty. I am a sucker for both so I combined the two not only for a bit of pregnancy craving relief, but also with St. Patty’s Day day in mind. These chocolate dipped pretzels are in the ‘mini’ version if you will. I made them in minis because I adore anything pint sized, perhaps because they give the illusion of less guilt? Regardless of the reason, they are a perfect treat or favor for your next St. Patrick’s Day Fete, or any occasion for that matter.
