This afternoon Todd and I drove back to the hill country and picked Fuzz up from Girl Scout camp. It was pouring rain. The campers were huddled under a porch while the soaking wet counselors very efficiently checked IDs and loaded each girl and her luggage into a car. On the ride home Fuzz told […]

A friend sent me this recipe in the mail. She got it from a friend who mailed it to her along with this note. What’s not to love about a review like that?  I had to bake them, so I picked up some instant vanilla pudding mix and made a  batch this morning. Todd said “They’re […]

Last year a friend asked if I’d auction off a kind of “Cookie of the Month” service for our school’s silent auction. The highest bidder would get freshly made cookies dropped off at their house once a month. I was worried Todd would end up having to bid on me, but someone beat him to […]

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Today’s second cookie was something I threw together at the last minute, my excuse being that the cookies would be perfect for Friday’s class Halloween party.
