So here is an update on my adventures in baking for the last month.
September 12... The wedding. FYI for those who weren't able to make it, the wedding featured a massive cookie extravaganza. Massive. I am estimating that I made about 400 or so cookies. I can't even really remember everything I made. By the time I got in to the reception area, the cookies had all disappeared. I guess they were popular.
September 13-31 Costa Rica. Adventures in Costa Rica were pretty adventurous. The highlights include a tour of a coffee plantation and a chocolate plantation. Yums. I felt very inspired to make cookies. And chocolate. Maybe it will be a
new adventure soon. We found great travel buddies in Costa Rica, Susan and Jay. While there I did a bit of baking, which was pretty fun. I honestly can't go 2 full weeks without making any cookies. They turned out.. well.. interesting to say the least. Creaming butter and sugar by hand is not recommended.
October 1-Now. We have been trying had to get everything put away from the wedding. It has been quite the chore. I've been doing some baking, some new flavors. I will continue in detail in another post.
BTW.. the pic is me hugging an organic shade grown Costa Rican coffee plant. The tree of life.
