To be comforting, I made the Braised Short Ribs from Dinner: A Love Story, my new favorite cookbook and website. They were delicious and may make it into the comfort food rotation.I also did my holiday baking. That fulfilled the sugar needs. This year rather than making for individuals, I made for groups. That is, I brought cookies of all kinds to the guidance department meeting, biscuits and scones to the elementary team meeting and cookies and bars to the front office. I tried Ina Garten’s Chocolate Chunk Blondies which were so. good.
I also made Walnut Snowball Cookies. Which were also full of buttery, sugary goodness.
All in all, it was a week of comfort food. I am now on vacation so will try to get a few more posts up- a tip on pomegranates and a yeast-free pizza dough.
Until then, I hope you are enjoying your holiday season.
