I love the colours of autumn. They’re just so warm and welcoming. And the girl scouts come around with peppermint chocolate cookies….yum!! It means winter is coming, time for me to curl up with a good book and a mocha. It means I will start listening to Christmas music and I will start baking holiday treats. And it also means I have to study for exams. *sigh* As much as I love summer, winter allows me the time to bake, to cook, and to write. Something that is harder to find time to do in the summer (I find). In the autumn I start to have an appetite for good food.
I’ve been planning out my sweet 16. I turned 16 this summer, but I didn’t have a party. And now I am. So this week I will keep you posted throughout this week. Today I made the party favours. Cookies. One of my friends is a Celiac so I bought a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie mix. I just tried one and they are delicious. Who knew gluten-free food could be so good?
Contrary to many people, I love going back to school. I love being able to see my friends everyday, I love eating lunch with them, and I love hanging out with them. Another thing I love about going back to school is the amount of time I have to blog. Since I was gone almost all summer, I found little time to bake. Now I have more time. I can bake and cook to calm down after a long day of school. During summer break I had this idea of oreo cupcakes. But I wanted to do something different. I didn’t know if it would work or not, but it did. These cupcakes were a hit.
