It seems the baking bug has come back to get me. I had it earlier this year, when I vowed to use my KitchenAid mixer at least once a week to create a delicious baked good. It had a nice run, but eventually I had to put that project on the backburner as all my clothes began to mysteriously shrink. But then the holidays began to roll around and I started baking again – isn’t baking a rule around this time of year? I’ve brought in treats to work, sent sent off with Eric to work, and given them out as gifts. With Christmas coming up this weekend I wanted to bake a couple more sweet treats (by the way, did you know you can type ‘sweet treats’ with just one hand?) but was going back and forth on it since I’ve been pressed for time.
I mentioned in my last post the amazing storm that passed through Mammoth Mountain last week. Here on the west coast we have been getting completely pounded with rain and in the Sierras that means a massive amount of snow. At the time of my post they had received over 10 feet of snow in just a few days, but since then the storm total has reached over 16 feet, making Mammoth the current ski resort with the most snow in the world. It was a historic snow storm and I feel very lucky to have been there and experience it first hand. It truly was awe-some.
