Because it’s winter, because there’s still a pandemic, and just because I enjoy it - we’re spending more time at home. We’ve justified our multiple selections of streaming television services with that in mind.
Our most current binge has been in to the world of the Great British Baking Show, and we are hooked. I think it’s subliminally made me more excited to spend time in the kitchen, and since we’re cooking more at home, too, that’s a plus! While most of the things they bake on the show is more than I feel ready to attempt, I decided these Madeleine biscuit cookies didn’t look too intimidating. So I ordered a pan from Amazon, and gathered a few more things, just in time to bake and share at a game night.
I listened to French music while I worked and had fun making them - and I think they came out pretty good for my first go! Maybe not handshake worthy, but I gave myself a pat on the back for trying something new and having fun with it!
