Yikes, it has been such a long time since I posted to my blog! A whole two weeks and my last post wasn’t even an actual recipe, just the previous ideas post. I even skipped the usual Saturday ideas post last weekend. Sorry Internet. I did an awful lot of work on my vacation, so I didn’t want to spend any extra time on my computer. I received multiple suggestions from family members for recipes that need to go onto the blog… those kind of count as idea votes for the Thanksgiving week, right? They even total four. My aunt’s amazing crab cakes, Tom Kha Gai from David Thompson’s Thai Food, rainbow chard from Ad Hoc at Home (with my cousin-in-law’s goat cheese addition), and a delicious chickpea kale curry … coming soon!
I’m slowly climbing out of a mountain of work and it’s the start of my “traditional” 12 days of Christmas cookies at work next week, so expect to see a lot of cookies. They make excellent hostess gifts, party favors, thank-you presents, and of course, afternoon snacks. Even nutritionists love cookies (my downstairs neighbor and college roommate being examples A and B).
A) Cast-Iron Grilled Chicken from Appetites
B) Kuching-style Laksa from Appetites
D) Olive Oil Sugar Cookies with Pistachios and Lemon Glaze from the Vanilla Bean Baking Book
