Baking Frenzy

lately, i have been baking new things.
i love baking and successfully baking something new is...
oh so joyous!
i love jumbo pretzels and these were a hit.
{the kids and i devoured them.}

a while back {maybe a year ago}...
we were dining at a local croissant cafe.
mr. c looked up from his flaky delicacy and said,
"you need to learn how to make these."

i researched it.
it was too intimidating.

but, then i found a croissant recipe in my new favorite book.
{momfuku milk bar}
it was still intimidating...
but, i was willing to try.

they turned out beautifully.
{they took most of the day to make....but, so worth it!}

and, although this isn't baked goods...
this batch of strawberry jam i made last week
would go heavenly with those croissants.

jams packaged and ready to go to
green table gifts.

this girl
LOVED the croissants.
she has had one each morning for breakfast.
{i filled some with chocolate...just for her.}
