food success #2
I made Nanaimo Bars yesterday, and they seem to have turned out well (I don't want to try them; I want to take a whole pan). They certainly smell good, and I did taste each layer as I made it, so I think that all together they'll be great.

Tonight I made the cinnamon almonds I posted about earlier, and they are teh YUM. I don't want to take them to the party, they're so good. I didn't blanch them, and I actually like the astringence of the skins countering the sweetness of the sugar and cinnamon.

I think that if I can find more almonds, I'm going to have to make some more of these on Saturday. They were so easy and came out just delicious.

Tomorrow: Fruit Salsa!

i feel: happy happy

I really like it that way myself. They are sooo delish warm from the oven. mmmm

I had to remove myself from the kitchen. I made these for a party tomorrow night, and I don't want to eat them all! Well, I do, but I can't.

Gonna make more on Saturday, I think, to take to my mom's for Christmas. I actually think they need a little salt, so I'll sprinkle them with some kosher salt before I put them in the oven. (I also sometimes salt pudding to bring out the sweetness.) :-D

I had an accident with the salt measurement and mine turned out more salty than asked for. heh
It's the only thing that didn't make me ill to smell or eat them yesterday so again I say "Good idea!!!"

I think I will add more cinnamon next time. I'm going to take a batch to a party too. It's just a great thing to bring.
