Wake & Bake


For some people wake and bake has a certain connotation but I prefer a more literal interpretation.  An early riser,  I have a hard time sleeping in so even when I don't have to be at work until the afternoon I'm up and at 'em- often in the kitchen.  Yesterday I baked off these Gingered Carrot Cookies but when my husband's alarm went off this morning I hopped out of bed and whipped up some cream cheese frosting to slather on top.  Then I promptly boxed them up for him to take so I wouldn't eat them for breakfast.


Well not all of them anyway.

I'm the same way. I'm up as early on Saturday as I am during the work week. I don't like to "waste" my off day by sleeping. :) (Although some would not say sleeping is a waste). Your cookies look perfect!

It's always good to send things off to work so you don't eat them all! I wish I would have iced mine, that looks so good!

Hahah! We can start a wake & bake club...and also a club of people who eat baked goods for breakfast. No shame in that game!
