Chats on the Farmhouse Porch #9
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far! Since it is Tuesday, I'm joining in on Ms. Patrice's porch for a Chat! Here are my questions and answers. . .
1. How much baking did you do before and after Christmas? Do you get more inspired to bake when the temps are cooler?
The amount of baking I have done since about the time of Thanksgiving is probably slightly embarrassing, haha. But, I just love to bake and try new recipes and being in the kitchen helping or doing my own recipe gives me a feeling of fun and accomplishment at the same time, and like I am doing something loving for my family and anyone visiting. I baked around 10 batches of cookies in December and a few cakes in between. I have been experimenting with different cookie recipes and have had so much fun with it. One of my favorites was chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips!
In answer to the second part, I definitely am more inspired to bake in Winter. The main reason I think of is that in the South, when it is Summer time everything is so hot that you don't have a lot of energy. In Winter, though, with the chillier weather, I feel more alive and have energy to bake warm pies and cookies and cakes. Baking in the cooler weather is also my favorite because whatever you make is not only delicious, but makes you feel warmer and cozier.
2. Do you have any food intolerances or allergies?
Not that I know of. I am very thankful for that, because it would be hard to have an allergy to something delicious. A few people I know are allergic to peanut butter. That would be hard.
3. When was the last time you were in a restaurant?
The last restaurant we were in was Chili's in the next town. We went because we had just gotten a gift card for a meal there from my sweet Aunt. It had been awhile since we had eaten there.
4. What's your favorite accent(speech)?
I love how Italian sounds when spoken, and European accents overall are beautiful. I think my favorite accent, though, would be Irish. I love how unique it is. It's fun to try to speak that way, too.
5. My favorite is .
My favorite feeling is being at home with my family this time of year and enjoying good meals, moments, and laughing together.
