Just Call Me Martha

I used to be a baking addict.

Cookies, brownies, cupcakes, cake…I couldn’t get enough.  I made it all, all the time.  No hyperbole, I baked something sweet at least once a day.

Holidays were my favorite, because I felt justified in feeding my obsession.  What else is the end of the year for if not overindulging?

Slowly I moved away from a habit (compulsion?) that I never thought I’d escape.  (Someday we might have a discussion about that journey, but today is not that day.)  This holiday season has been seriously lacking in the treat consumption department, so today I decided I would remedy that. (I mean, Christmas is in two days so…)

I found this recipe for Oreo Peppermint Bark on A Southern Fairytale.

Excellent, I thought.  That looks so easy.  It’s really not even baking at all.

HA.

Somehow, even though I followed the very simple recipe like a formula (well, sort of) , my top layer of white chocolate was quite sparse and well nigh impossible to spread.  Also, there’s the simple fact that, instead of looking like a chocolatier’s holiday confection, mine looks akin to something Santa’s reindeer might vomit up after a particularly turbulent sleigh ride.

[NAILED IT]

I feel so festive now.  This almost makes up for the lack of snow.

Do you have any have any holiday treats that promise results that are attractive enough to actually share with people?  Lay ’em on me.

  1. So when I saw the title of your blog post, I thought you were talking about Martha from Doctor Who. And when I finished, I was a little bit confused but just figured I’d missed something. I read the post again, and I thought, wait, where’s the reference to how awful and worthless Martha Jones was? And then I thought again, and I was like “ohhhhhh martha STEWART” shit. (It was so sad, it took me so long.)

thoughts? leave 'em here.
