The sky is a flat, dull grey. Everything outside the windows looks listless and cold. You happen to have Cookie Butter and lemons. Which means you’re just a few steps away from having cake. An icebox cake -because it keeps you from looking like a crazy lady who made a cake and then sat down [...]
Bits and bobs from this past week….. Mother-Daughter love. Or how I forced her to entertain me while we waited for our food to arrive. Just beet it Sparkling lights on a crisp, cold night I tarted My first attempt at cinnamon bread When Richard Simmons gets his game on – he slips on a [...]
