Snow Days

Back on January 8th we bad a blizzardy weekend. I was snowed in, it was cold, windy and we had a lot of snow. But all in all it was not too much to complain about because we had been having a mild winter and not too much snow to speak of. I was hoping…… Continue reading Snow Days

The week so far…

Is this a long week for anyone else or is it just me? Just wondering. So.

Sugar…

I have been doing a lot of baking, so much so that I have to go to the grocery store and get MORE sugar, eggs, and some heavy cream. That’s right folks – cupcakes and cookies are coming down the pipe line… I already have the cookie dough made. It has been chilling over night.…… Continue reading Sugar…
