This Christmas, my daughter and I made traditional baklawa in our Lebanese tradition, and lemon and chocolate Italian cookies with Mom Campion's recipe. Brushing butter on the phyllo dough with a pastry brush was the closest I came to painting. There has been no time to paint these past few days---yes, I miss it, but spending this special time with my daughter is more important to me.
Is your mouth watering yet?
I am wishing everyone a happy new year. I appreciate all of your kindness through nice comments and encouragement.
