Baking Christmas Cookies

Last weekend Tookie and I spent a couple of hours baking Czech Christmas cookies.  You may not know, but I was born in the Czech Republic and these cookies are some of the ones my mom made when I was little.  She still makes them and even sent us some that she made this year.  I guess they were supposed to be for Tookie but Rich and I ate some too ;)  Mine didn't turn out nearly as good as my moms (is that even possible?)  and of course she makes a lot more varieties, but Tookie and I had fun making a big mess in the kitchen. I don't do a lot of food photography but I was inspired by one of my favorite blogs to document our baking adventure in photos.  If you've never seen the Sprouted Kitchen blog, you are missing out.  The recipes sound so good it makes you want to eat healthy for every meal and the photography is absolutely beautiful.

Merry Christmas!
