How many people actually know the origins of our major holidays?
I love chocolate, I love candy bars, and I love cookies! But, most of all I love easy to make cookies hot out of the oven.
My dad was an awesome musician. He was self taught and could pick up any stringed instrument and play completely by ear. He could hear a song once, pick up a guitar or a banjo, and crank out that tune. Reading music wasn't his thing.
My best friend/ life mate asked me the other day how much I loved him. The only honest answer I could come up with was, "I love you as much as I can."
I love pumpkin pie. But, whipped pumpkin pie takes a good thing and makes it totally awesome! A friend of mine brought this to Thanksgiving dinner and it was the hit of the party. I was amazed at how easy it was to make... especially using a pre-made graham pie crust.
Turning 60 was a huge milestone for me. I raised six children and also a few dozen that weren't mine. My house was always the gathering place for lost children and lost pets. Life was never quiet and never dull. Then one day, they were all gone.
