Warming up the kitchen

If there's one sure thing about winter, it's that I bake...a lot. Ds#1 wanted an angel food cake, but I talked him out of it and made a citrus chiffon cake instead. For some reason, it has a strange dent in it, but it still tastes fabulous. I just love anything with lemon and orange zest (although it's not that much fun zesting).

Today, I made snowball cookies. Pecans are one of my favorite baking ingredients. Dh was all out of cookies to bring to work, and I'd rather make him cookies than buy them (even the organic ones).
