Gingersnaps and Banana Bread


My dear friend Lindsey sent me this book, A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg.
I am not super crafty in the kitchen. 
Daniel does most of the cooking around here,
but this book makes me want to bake.
This weekend we made a couple of loaves of banana bread
(with ginger and chocolate chips). 
We froze it and it is making the best breakfast treat. 


While we were eating breakfast this morning a package was delivered.
A box full of love from Phoenix Peacock
These lovely tins were filled with Christmas cookies. 
Daniel was so happy.
His Grandmother and Granddaddy used to always send him holiday cookies when he was young. 


Santa is hooked up around here. 

What do you like to bake this time of year? 

love love,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. If you need motivation, read this book
