I’m moving forward with my TIF for January.
Here’s my rough “plan” for this month –
Not very informative, is it. I can’t draw. I use 4×6 sticky pads to note ideas, since that automatically limits me to the size that I want.
As I mentioned before, a person I greatly admire is my grandmother. My thoughts went from grandma, to food, to cooking. My grandmother insisted on the importance of family, and food is closely tied into that, and into memories. She was a good cook, and as a starting point for my needlework, I took my grandmother’s recipe for mandlebrot (a.k.a. biscotti).
A quick disclosure – these days, when I bake biscotti, I don’t generally use my grandmother’s recipe. I usually prefer a recipe either from Marcy Goldman (her apricot sunrise biscotti are fabulous) or from Dori Greenspan.
