Resolution Round Up: January

Today’s Tea: Rose Tea

My New Years resolution was twofold: read more and bake more. How did I do this month?

Books I Read:

Young Adult:

NOT A DROP TO DRINK by Mindy McGinnis

THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART TIME INDIAN by Sherman Alexie

Adult:

THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO by Junot Diaz

Non-Fiction:

COLUMBINE by Dave Cullen

Things I Baked:

Amish Friendship Bread – This is a bit of a cheat since I made the starter at the end of the month. I’ll report on how the bread actually turns out next month.

Condensed Milk Cake – Overcooked it a bit. If I made it again (and I think I will, the taste was nice and light, perfect for having with tea) I’d probably start checking after 25 minutes.

Carrot Cake Muffins – These turned out pretty well. A little dry and not as sweet as I was expecting, but they still got rave reviews.

Broccoli and Potato Soup – Quite delicious. I made it without cheese and it was still very good.

 Banana Bread – A basic, bare-bones recipe but yummy. Also delicious with tea.
