12 (+) days of Christmas

In a blended family like mine (with remarried parents, grandparents who act as parents, plus in-laws with close ties to extended family — not to mention shared custody of our oldest daughter), Christmas is an extended affair.  So while it’s New Year’s Eve morning for the rest of the world, Santa visited us just last night and this morning while the kids play with their toys (and Alice battles a fever — oh the holiday memories we’re making), I’m whipping up this Citrus Cardamom Coffee Cake.  I used this recipe just as it is, with a pinch of cinnamon in the batter (because I’m of the persuasion that cinnamon pretty much makes everything awesome).

Happy holidays to all — I’m looking forward to having some down time to write about our cookies, risotto, scallops, and other holiday cooking endeavors soon!
