Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

I've been busy skiing, running, baking, cooking, reading, wrapping presents, spending time with my family and having some pretty amazing dinners. So basically, I am having a wonderful winter break :) And I can't believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve! My family has some pretty great traditions that I can't wait to do and share with everyone!
Here are a few photos of my last few days.
These are amazing cookies (jam filled soft cookies) that I made from a blog I follow (Eat Live Run) -
