Baker’s Dozen

I don’t know about you, but I have a tradition where I buy myself one nice Christmas present a year – a little “thank you” to myself for keeping it together another year. This year, I went a little overboard and bought:

The Ankarsrum Assistent – Sweden’s fanciest mixer! I could have just bought the standard KitchenAid mixer that everyone has, but if you know me, you know that was never really an option once this Swedish beauty made itself known.

This beautiful, delicious loaf of bread! I’ve never even attempted to make bread before, so I was so excited that I got something edible on my first try! I’m glad I took a chance and tried something new – because the reward was delicious bread!

Next up on my baking adventure will be Cardamom Rolls, which Ken and I became obsessed with when we visited Stockholm a few years ago – I hope they turn out as well as my bread experiment!
