Fish en papillote

If you're at a loss as to how to cook your fish without losing a lot of moisture, try this method. Wash lightly pat dry the fish fillets with a paper towel. Lay it in the middle of a piece of parchment paper, and add washed and chopped vegetables (like asparagus, green beans, or diced squash). Drizzle with olive oil and/or a few bits of butter, salt and pepper, and bake at 400 for 25 minutes. Et voila!

Sweet labels

As part of my advent calendar this year (handmade by my mom), there was an envelope of baking labels that she printed onto sticker backing. When I opened the package, I only saw the top label, but now that I'm ready to bake today, I untied the little bundle and -surprise- they are all different! How fun!

Some of the labels say "Something special just for from Ri's kitchen", and "sweet treats just for you, from Ri", and even "Dutch treats, made just for you by Marie".
