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:
NOT A DROP TO DRINK by Mindy McGinnis
THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART TIME INDIAN by Sherman Alexie
THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO by Junot Diaz
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.
