grain-free cinnamon rolls

You might be baking tonight. Tomorrow. Maybe even the morning of the 25th.

(Of course, you don’t need to celebrate Christmas to bake on the 25th.)

And you might want some cinnamon rolls.

We made you some grain-free cinnamon rolls. Head on over to Food52 to see the recipe.

grain-free Russian tea cookies

Also, there are grain-free Russian tea cakes. They also happen to be dairy-free too.. You can find the recipe for those here.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to wrap some books for Lu. Every morning this month, she has woken up earlier and earlier, happily chattering and dashing into our room to shake us awake and tell us her stories. We race down the stairs to write the day’s date on our homemade advent calendar together and read books much of the morning. These have been some lovely days. It seems that five is the perfect age for this season. Given that, she’ll be up at 5:30 tomorrow morning. Probably 4:30 on the 25th. So I’m headed for bed.

I’ll be back on Friday with my favorite books of 2013. Whatever you believe, whomever you love, have a wonderful few days.
