Sam (returns to) the kitchen! Hazzzah!

30 Jan

So it’s been quite a year; Some medical issues later, a few hospital visits, a house move and a new bubba born – and I’m back. I miss sharing my foodie adventures in the kitchen with you and I am looking forward to getting back into it. Over Christmas I’ve been warming back up with some old favourites. I’ve made some quite tasty handmade pasta for dinner, a few lemon meringue pies, several batches of delicious brownies,  and one VERY disastrous gingerbread house. Hopefully I’ll be uploading new adventures from my new kitchen soon – stay tuned! 🙂

Tip of the week:

If you want to make a gingerbread house that will not crush it’s little gingerbread residents, resulting in a ginger infused lawsuit, then use a recipe for a HOUSE, and not for COOKIES. (Duh, Sam!) It does seem obvious in retrospect I suppose. 🙂

How not to make a gingerbread house 101

I got all the little ginger people out safely, but the house was a write off. Pardon the tin of spaghetti. Inside the house there were five more similar cans, attempting to hold walls up. *Sigh*… the wreckage was so delicious, but just not structurally integral.

    we expect to see improvements before you return to school. Gingerbread cookies would be just fine though.
