How is 2017 treating you so far? Do you have any goals for this year?
I'm a bookworm. This year I want to be more intentional with my reading. That means reading twenty six new-to-me books instead of revisiting ones I've already read.
I also want to try out twenty six new-to-me bread/candy/cookie recipes in the hopes that when Christmas 2017 rolls around, I'll be able to whip out a killer candy plate.
It's snowing today and I'm stuck inside, so I thought this would be a good day to make some Butterfly Cinnamon Rolls. I have been seriously craving a good cinnamon roll. No bakery around here makes them to my liking.
I made these the good old fashioned way, kneading by hand, sans Kitchen Aid mixer. They turned out surprisingly well for this non-baker.
Scary Close by Donald Miller is my first book of 2017. I read Blue Like Jazz last year and loved it. And, as is usually the case, when I find an author I like, I tend to read every book they've written. I'm sure there will be another Miller book in my queue this year.
A loan from the library, I would have finished the book in two days but this book was so good, I ended up taking 14 pages of notes. As a result, it took me longer. I should have just bought a copy. If I had, I'm sure I would have taken a highlighter to every page. How's that for a recommendation?
Books and baked goods. It doesn't get any better than that.
