Happy Thanksgiving!

I realize my last post was some time ago. Glad to be back! Let’s just say I’m thankful to have been really busy this year! I’m also thankful for Heather’s gluten free cinnamon rolls which we had as an intro to today’s festivities.



She wanted to bring back the cinnamon rolls of her youth in a gluten free way, so that we could all enjoy them. It’s straight out of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. Well sort of; just substitute Cup4Cup flour and butter for the shortening.

Stay tuned for turkey leftovers coming soon!! Enjoy your time with family and friends!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Heather and I both have a little Irish blood in us. So…hopefully you are wearing a touch of green to celebrate with us. Baileys Irish Cream is an easy way to turn your coffee into a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Does the swirl remind you of the tumultuous Irish sea? Or have you already had a few drinks? Only you can answer that! Either way, don’t forget to have your green shamrock cookies. Have a happy (and safe) St. Patrick’s Day!

Baileys and coffee. The Irish cream swirl! Tumultuous Irish sea?

Baileys Irish Cream. A nice blend of Irish cream, spirits, Irish whiskey, and a touch of chocolate.

Shamrock cookies. Would your St. Patrick's Day be complete without them??

Molasses cookies…oh my.

My goal for this post was to give you proper motivation for your afternoon snack. Just the word cookie…and I’m in search of. But these molasses cookies are possibly my all time favorite, and Heather was kind enough to bake these at my request.  I think I had around 15 while I photographed this. Seriously. I loved every one. It’s actually driving me crazy that there are some left in the kitchen right now, as I write this. I’ll be right back…….grab your coffee and enjoy!

(Just ask if you want the recipe)

EDIT….recipe is in the comments
