When we're not creating floral designs (or drooling over some other type of design - most likely of the interior kind), we are quite possibly cooking up, or dreaming about cooking up, something delicious. The husband received a few cookbooks for Christmas, including one by Jamie Oliver sooooo we've been eating well, a la Jamie, recently. Above you see a few of the beautiful things that, after an hour or so simmering on the stove, will become Mulled Wine. I can smell it even now (or that could just be the last few drops of petit syrah in my glass...). Either way, I recommend it.
Also, one cannot (and should not) get through the holidays without some cookies.
So the husband made some Molasses Crinkles. Which I, of course, also recommend.
