It’s in the air . . . Can you feel it? I sure can!
You know what I mean. It’s that wonderful time of year when smiles are broader, laughter and kindness seem to take the place of frowns and everyday problems.

Oh Valentine’s Day. How do I feel about thee?
I’ll explain, but before I do, some of you might want to grip a chair or chew on a pencil.
Over my spanning years . . . and recently I just added another . . . I’ve made a lot of Peanut Butter Cookies.
This Peanut Butter cookie is perfection at it’s finest. Simply put, I can’t quit eating these dang cookies! This recipe from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook is without a doubt, my new favorite Peanut Butter Cookie recipe.

“A hand-written recipe, covered with splatters is like a warm hug from the past.”
Some recipes are made so often, that the actual recipe is really not even needed. You place it’s dirty face on the work surface , so you can see the mixing, stirring & hear the voices & laughter from the past. This recipe is one of those treasures. It’s still the most requested cookie in my house!

The other day, two of my favorite people knocked on my door. Adria & Michelle left me with a very delicious treat. Once this delectable bar was gone, I quickly sent a text out for the recipe. This sweet little bar was not only scrumptious, but was also pretty enough to sit and “shine” inside a bakery window.
Just the other day, I was waiting my turn in the check out line. I could feel my heart thumping, and I’m sure the lady waiting behind me could also hear it! “Calm down, you idiot, you used it before, and you didn’t screw up!” . . . I thought to myself. I swiped my […]
You’ve probably heard the saying . . . Puttin’ on the Ritz. If you have thirty seconds and just four ingredients, you can make this spectacular dessert! This is the perfect crowd pleaser at the end of a meal, when you need “a little something sweet!”
On my left is misery. On my right is sweet heaven. My left contact is for monovision, or up close reading. My right contact is fitted for distance. It took a while to adjust and at times I still fill as if I’m on a boat, rocking back and forth. My left side is cluttered […]
Before I head outside to mow the lawn and pick the peas . . . I wanted to share a a delicious little melt in your mouth, jam filled Shortbread Cookie. I’m sorry, I simply have not had the time to plate & style . . . so here is the rough draft straight from […]
