Inspiration…… Jordan

Once in a while I run across some inspiration for baking. This summer while at the Intercontinental Hotel in Aqaba, Jordan I found such inspiration.

When I was at the hotel it was the Holy Month of Ramadan. I had been told that the hotel buffets pull out all the stops. This hotel was no different.

The dessert buffet was no less than 20 feet long!

What to Bake for Holiday 2010…..

This years baking decisions started right after Christmas 2010. I looked at what was left over, what “sold“well, and what I did not enjoy making. Then I let it sit.

My thoughts turned to Christmas during my summer vacation. While I was struggling to climb the 800 steps to the Monastery in Petra, Jordan when it was +47 Celsius my mind turned towards what the weather will be like this Christmas. This lead to fond memories with family and friends. This then lead to thoughts of my annual Christmas baking list!

Shortbread, Oatmeal-Cherry-Toffee-Chocolate cookies, and Cherry Chews flooded my memory. Then I thought that I needed to shake things up this year.

Suddenly I found I had made it to the top and was standing in front of the Monastery!
