Baking for a visit-



Can you see the design?  I used a stamp of a lion and the lamb.

You can see it better in person.  Maybe YOU should come over for a visit!

I love stamping baked cookies!  Especially these Swedish ginger cookies-

they get a little larger and crunchier and have a cool design.

My son and his family are coming for the weekend!

So I also made bread!


A cheesy flat bread… to go with some spicy pumpkin soup.


Sourdough Rye with caraway seeds.

I love the spicy pumpkin soup, recipe here.   I added some fresh ground

cardamom this time!


I love grinding it myself- and it is Extra aromatic and fresh!

Cardamom is quite expensive.  I usually buy my spices at bulk stores and get it

fresher that way.  But I left this ingredient out of the soup last time because:

1) the stores didn’t carry cardamom (WHAT?  I was in a remote place in Virginia)

2) the store I found that carried it wanted $20+ for a medium size bag.

So I waited until I came home to my own little stash!

People should come over to visit more often!

  1. Everything looks yummy! My mouth is watering over here. I’m planning on making those cookies as soon as I get all of the ingredients. Have a great time with your visitors.

  2. Thanks to you both!
    it was all quite tasty!
    And Luke made a wonderful sockeye salmon , sauteed trumpet mushrooms, Willow made cauliflower with garlic sauce and a flavorful quinoa, and I made the salad with fresh arugula, red leaf lettuce and sprouts dressed with dark cherry basalmic vinegar and olive oil.
