Christmas is coming!
The baking has started and I thought this brief post would just link a couple of great recipes for Christmas baking.
Now these little guys are crazy good. I’m baking a huge batch of this for my clinic nurses (the many long-suffering souls who stay back when my clinic inevitably runs late), as well as my endocrinologist (to convince him that low carb is great and sustainable).
All hail the queen of low carb baking and her Gingerbread and Cheesecake Bites.
Packed and ready to go!
I also had a crateload of fun yesterday making gingerbread men. I admit these weren’t quite the chewy gingerbread men I used to make but these still definitely had a Christmassy flavour and held up well to handling and icing. As you can see I got a little bored after a while and the little men got more and more manic-looking as time went on.
Kid#2 gave up after decorating 1 man and a couple of stars…in the end I felt I was like the kid left to play alone in the sandbox…but I guess the inner child in me hopped out and took over the icing decorating happily.
It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas!
This Christmas centerpiece was made by one of my patients with fine motor difficulties…completely amazing.
