Christmas in January – Cookbooks, Cookie Press & Duralex Bowls GiveawayJanuary 9, 2022 by Jenny
Between the end of the year rush and being sick (that is still lingering), I feel cheated out of Christmas. December is my favorite month – my birthday, the holiday decorations, relaxing, baking, and the overall feel of the holidays – I feel like I missed it all.
We are not taking the tree down for another two weeks so I can pretend it is still the holiday season. I love lights and keep a string of lights around the kitchen window and other places in the house channeling my inner Nigella.
To continue the feeling of the holidays, I want to share a few great baking books and products with you as well offering a giveaway to keep the season of giving alive.
Gingerbread: A Wonderland of Houses, Creative Constructions and Cookies; with 38 Projects, Gingerbread Recipes and Templates by Heather Whinney shares everything gingerbread, from basic recipes to gorgeous constructions. Cut-out garlands, tree decorations and woodland tabletop scenes to log cabins, sweet-festooned cottages and elaborate winter chalets. There are ginger biscuits, Bundts and seasonal cakes. All shown in photographic detail and with templates, this festive book is not just for Christmas. Our gives you a look inside along with a few recipes – we can still eat gingerbread in January – and you can practice your gingerbread construction to be in top shape for the holiday season 2022.

There are primers on grain, flour, sourdough starter, leaven, and dough formulas. Thirteen singular master formulas for naturally leavened doughs – from the reengineered country bread to rustic baguettes, flatbread, rolls, buns, tortillas, pizza, rye, gluten-free loaves, and more, plus fermented pasta doughs that use discarded sourdough starter – make this title the most innovative and complete manual for baking with wild yeast cultures.
