After the red and green of Christmas is played out, my mind always turns to snow, snowflakes, and twilight colors like sky blue, teal, pink, and plum. And after the frenzy of baking and candy-making for holiday gifts, my mind turns to cut-out cookies with detailed designs. The result: snowflake cookies!
Part one of my renaissance for 2011 is to get back into the kitchen, experiment, be creative. Cooking is my first love and I feel a strong desire to reconnect with it. I’ve been reading other food blogs which have given my culinary imaginings a jolt.
For this first blog post, which I hope to follow with one about every two weeks, I offer winter colors atop sugar snowflake cookies decorated with royal icing and sprinkles galore.
