Housekeeping – Adopt a Blogger and Pay It Forward

I have a ton of housekeeping to do around here! This post isn’t going to have a whole lot of substance, but I promise a great soft sugar cookie recipe at the if you hang in there through to the end. Pay It Forward: Sandi over at one of my favorite blogs, The Whistlestop Cafe, […]

Traitor, Hypocrite…call me what you’d like

  I feel like such a traitor. We have the best little local coffee house in our suburb. It was the only little coffee house in our suburb.  The Country Club Cafe is a family friendly place that has a small play area for the kiddos to hang out at while the mom’s sit around […]

The Gingerbread Man Hunt

  I love traditions. My husband cracks up at me because if we do something once, and enjoy it, then I make it a tradition to do that same thing every year! It seems like this time of year we have my made up traditions coming out of the woodwork. One tradition that got its […]

Anticipation

  I am like a kid around the holidays, especially when it comes to the food. I look forward to the delicious feast of goodies that is usually bountiful this time of year.

I know that this is completely against all things good about the feminist movement, but I have always wanted to be like June Cleaver, or our modern day example, (minus all […]

Peanut Butter Perfection

  I have never been a huge fan of peanut butter cookies. It isn’t that I don’t like the flavor of them… it is just that they are so inconsistent. You never know what you are going to get when you bite into a homemade peanut butter cookie. Is it going to be crunchy? Will […]

Blueberries Get Their Day to Shine

  First of all, let me get some of the vacation details out of the way. Our vacation was really nice, minus all the bonding time we had in the car. I love my family, but 40 hours in the car reverses the love we developed for each other from the first 20 hours of […]

Baked Goods = Love

Written for Just Baking on the Well Fed Network   There used to be a time when I did not see the point of making homemade cookies. Why bother with all the trouble when you can get refrigerated cookie dough? What could be easier than snipping open the package, slicing some dough and then baking […]
