Cookies for the Fourth of Juyly

Happy Fourth of July! Our holiday got off to a good start last night when we discovered the upstairs balcony was a prime viewing spot for the annual neighborhood fireworks display.  We would have noticed this last year had there been a fireworks show, but it had been canceled due to the drought.

Flag Cake

Happy Fourth of July! I hope you’re having a good one. Ours has been really nice due to the fireworks ban, as there are no wild and tormented (or otherwise sedated) dogs running around. I  didn’t miss the fireworks at all.  It would have been fun to have a few sparklers, but we had …

This morning’s dessert recipe is from Pat, who linked to it in the comment section. Pat was sorry Cooks Recipes didn’t include pictures, but promised me it was a good dessert. As to its name, it has flour layers. The first layer is a crumbly crust made of vanilla wafers. The second layer is a […]

Red White and Blueberry Cookies

Red White and Blue

I’ve been somewhat fixated on Midge’s cookies this morning. I liked them the way they were, but Carol’s idea of making them “Red White and Blue” inspired me to try them again with a slightly different dough. Here’s the second version.
