baking soundtrack

Harper Lee’s, To Kill A Mockingbird, narrated by Sissy Spacek – Scout’s southern lilt is perfect!

Lovely accompaniment while getting ahead with some Christmas baking for gift-giving and entertaining.

Hmmm ~ a lot of “to dos” 🙂

Good thing this recorded version of To Kill A Mockingbird is 11 CDs long!

Baking is definitely an Island Christmas tradition. I love this Island site that features  Prince Edward Island Family Christmas recipes.  So many wonderful recipes!! And you can be sure that they are tried and true – the family’s best!

What Christmas recipes do you make each year? I’d love to hear your traditions.

Well, I better get cracking!

Happy days!

with love,

  1. Ugh. I am waaay behind on the cooking planning front. Your post reminds me I've got to get moving! Roomie has to ship her cookies so we're always looking for ones that taste nearly as good when they're a few days old… Yours look delish.


  2. Yum! I like to do some holiday baking too. I always make soft molasses cookies, frosted & sprinkled sugar cookies, and a chocolate/marshmallow Yule log.I think you've picked a good book to listen to while you bake.jody


  3. Well Kathie, That is a lot of cookies and other goodies. Do you have enough people to help you eat it all?? I did make one batch of Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookies but they are almost all gone already. Don't worry, I shared. I am making cookies for "Christmas on the Ridge" for this Saturday. I usually only make sugar and shorbread cookies and sometimes almond cookies (rolled in sugar). Happy Baking!Pam

    One year in high school I made a batch of cookies every day, each a colorful and unique recipe. Then froze them, and just before Christmas arranged them artfully on a plate and gave them to the neighbors who were awestruck. My elderly widowed neighbor decided they were just too pretty to eat, she refroze them and had them out every year after that as part of the christmas decorations!Oh Kathie…someday I hope you get to have a Christmas season time in New Orleans. If you love the southern accent, you will LOVE the people of the south. I've been in New Orleans in Dec. many times, and have blogged about it, even putting links on my sidebar. Dang…now I want to go again!


  5. Wow. I had two cookies on my baking list this year, and was feeling overwhelmed. I'd better step up my game! I love the recipes you've posted so far. I will check out the rest of the PEI recipes on that site. Thanks!

    OH your to do list looks ever so yummy. It is nice to know that someone is organized. I thought of you again this morning when I moved from atlantic time to central time.


  7. Hi Kathie,Good for you! I am still trying to play catch up from a busy past week. I did make date squares which are a tradition, but my family is devouring them faster than I can keep up:)I also make Christmas cookies….hopefully soon.Our tradition evolved after a trip to England and then my daughter's first YWAM experience. While she was away, we did a Chinese Christmas to remember her as she was in China. We have since done many more countries which I will blog about soon.Happy Baking! Enjoy this season!Joanne in rainy, foggy Ontario
