Empire Biscuits

Something happened to my Empire Biscuits this year.  I think my eggs were too large and they came out more cake-like than usual.

If you want the recipe , click here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2011/12/empire-biscuits.html


They still look cute and taste good!

I love that Sur La Table puts their holiday items on sale before the actual holiday.  I can buy them and use them and not have to wait a year.  These are the cutest measuring cups and spoons.

And look!  The Blog Tech's Ikea monster is finally assembled!  I hope I never have to visit Ikea again. Click for a closer look.  The Xbox actually will be set up inside the glass door.

Those Christmas kitchen goodies are so cute. There is a Sur La Table at Pike Place Market but I'm not sure if I'll get over there. Blog Tech's set up looks great!

Very cute! Like you, I avoid IKEA if I can. Turkish families like to go there on the weekend and make a whole day of it! It's an insane zoo and my personal idea of hell! ;-)

The cookies look adorable. Love the measuring cups and spoons! The blog tech's new cabinet looks great - hopefully you won't have to return to Ikea, at least not in the near future!
