Two wins!


That’s right! My baking skills won not one but two prizes today at the Consulate’s holiday party – most creative and most gourmet 🙂

What did I make? An all-time family favorite from my very wise German baking book – Nussecken (Nut bars). I have made them a bunch of times before without any problems but of course this time around, I was battling an oven that threatened to burn my baked goods before they were supposed to leave the oven…. some say that I *might* have been a little sour last night when I was glazing the yummy treats without trying to break them….but it seems that taste won over looks so ‘yay’ for me!

  1. Awesome! Tyson napped till almost 4:30!!!! So…we obviously missed it. Bummer! We thought about leaving around 4:30, but we figured it would be over once we got there. See you later this coming week.
