Makes Beth Happy, January 12 ...

The Makes-Beth-Happy Word of the Day is:

The first full week of the year was b-u-s-y. So I was very happy to send off my last project of the week last night and wake up – insane bombshell news aside – to a day of nothing that needs doing. It's snowing lightly. I'm about to bake. Later, I can take a nap. And I'm still in my PJs. All of which adds up to "cozy."

The Makes-Beth-Happy Recipe of the Day is:

I'm not in the habit of linking to myself but this is the bread I'll be baking once I'm done with this post and what's cozier than bread baking in the oven on a snowy day? This is a good bread to try if you're daunted by the idea. So long as you don't kill the yeast, you really can't screw it up. The most important thing to know about it is this: it makes fabulous toast. Butter. Apricot jam. Butter and apricot jam. Nutella. Peanut butter. Cream cheese with shaved onion and sliced tomato and salt and freshly ground pepper (yep, just treat it like a bagel). Rubbed with a cut garlic clove and used as the base for bruschetta ... .
You get the idea.

And the Makes-Beth-Happy Objet of the Day is:

Scotch Whiskey Scented Baxter Manor Candle
Scotch will make you warm whether you're cold or not but it's made for chilly evenings and low light. This candle smells exactly like a glass of Scotch. Very cozy. And the aroma works well with the scent of baking bread. The small tin is cute as a bug and just the right size if you're intrigued by the idea of a candle that smells like hooch. It also makes a nice little host/ess gift if you have Scotch-loving friends.
