a few of my favorite things

Late Christmas January 4, 2009

Filed under: Baking,weekend — Bridget @ 5:00 pm

Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re all having a good one.  Yesterday my dad and I made it to the gym and it felt sooo good to just be at a gym!!  I really am a gym rat, I just loved it!  A couple hours after we got home all plans were canceled due to icy roads.   Oh well.

Due to all the traveling and house-hunting around the holidays, I didn’t get to share much of my holiday celebrations with you all.  I know it’s belated, so I’ll just share a few things.

First up, my favorite Christmas treat ever – Pistachio Nut Swirl Cake, otherwise known as Green Cake.  We make this every year to eat on Christmas morning (yes! cake for breakfast!  it’s so good with a cup of coffee).  I realize that I was too excited to eat it, so I never got a shot of the inside, but the actual cake is green from pistachio pudding.  Delish!

Next up are some food-related holiday gifts: an immersion blender and Giada’s new cookbook.

Haven’t used either yet, but I’m looking forward to it!
