On the fourth Day of Christmas... true love gave to me, four calling birds, and a bunch of cookie recipes! Yes it is that time of year again. The time of year when I don't get to go near my kitchen in the evenings, because my husband has stolen it from me! The time of year where the house smells of ginger and spice, of peppermint and chocolate, and I'm not aloud to have any of it! The time of year when my investment analyst husband takes over the baking from his wife who was a chef! How did this happen? I have no idea. He always liked cooking, but then I got him a cookbook by Alton Brown (his favorite Food Network chef) called "I'm Just Here for More Food: Food x Mixing + Heat = Baking" and I never got to bake another cookie again. Alton Brown uses science to figure out the best method to cook whatever it is you are cooking, and being a math major/science geek my husband loved it! But now every year I sit in the living room with the kids, peering into the kitchen watching him cook, and hoping that maybe, just maybe, he'll let me lick the spoon. :) Anyway, on to today's verse!
