It’s Monday. It’s sunny and hot. I worked 7am – 7pm inside (half the day in a gym without windows!), taking a break only to go to physio. And yet, today flew by! I can’t help but think these cookies had something to do with that.
It was Canada Day yesterday, and we were lucky enough to get a perfectly sunny and hot long weekend in Vancouver! I got to visit with my parents (and mooch a few meals), check out Granville Island for beers and treats, lay in the sun, and see some fireworks!
Hope you had a great long weekend!
I survived Tough Mudder Whistler again this year! Weeoo!
I thought the course was easier this year than last year (or maybe I’m just stronger and more badass?), and enjoyed the course better overall. Some of the route overlapped with last years course, but as a whole, it was quite a different Mudder! Which I was glad for, variety is always good, and it leaves me optimistic that each returning Whistler Mudder will be unique!
Floral tastes in dessert. Thoughts?
Personally, I like a hint of rose or lavender in the right baked good. Done right, you get an essense of the ingredient, without quite being able to put your finger on it. Take this rosewater frosting for example. Just a touch of rosewater adds a light rose scent without feeling like you’ve taken a bite out of your mother’s prized Old Blush.
Sometimes in the world of baking, things just dont turn out the way we hope they will. I guess that’s why we have go-to recipes. To avoid disappointment. Case in point, this strawberry vanilla cake. It looks ok. Just ok.
