A book launch and holiday baking – Day 329

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a book launch party for my good friend Ian Rogers who has recently had TWO books published! Ian and I have worked together for about six years and we’ve supported each other as we’ve been trying to balance our creative pursuits with the day job that pays the bills.

His books “Every House is Haunted” and “SuperNOIRtural Tales” are excellent and I highly recommend you pick them up the next time you’re in a book store. Or order them online!

Tonight I started my holiday baking in earnest. Every year all my friends and family receive a box of homemade goodies from me at Christmas. A few years ago I thought perhaps people might be tired of getting baking and maybe I should do something else….I was quickly told otherwise!

It seems everyone has a favourite and I like to try at least one new recipe a year so that means a lot of baking. Tonight I made rum balls and shortbread meltaways…while enjoying a glass of wine of course.
