Holidays and the art of eating

I've been keeping track of all the holiday treats my mom, sisters and I have baked so far this break - so many delicious things! The amount of butter we have gone through in the last month is beyond ridiculous. New Years Resolution nombre un: get back to the gym!

My birthday breakfast: buttermilk scones and homemade blackberry jam

triple-berry pie

gingerbread cookies with cream cheese frosting for Christmas dessert

tree-shaped French Toast for Christmas morning!

Scotch Shortbread cookies with cream cheese & dark chocolate frosting for Christmas dessert.

BonBons & peanut butter kisses for my birthday party

Ciopinno for Christmas Eve dinner: made with prawns, shrimp, halibut, scallops, and calamari. Served with salad and sourdough baguettes - youhavenoidea how good!

Quiche and drip for my first breakfast at home.

Tree-shaped biscuits, served with homemade sausage gravy and Kona coffee.

Seriously though, I ate like a queen this holiday season!
