I'm perusing "Top Chef: The Quickfire Cookbook" I bought at Tuesday Morning yesterday. I want to improve my food photography and it has tons of gorgeous photos. Good recipes, too

No, they weren't Russian tea cakes. These look like a simple blonde sugar cookie, about 3 inches in diameter. They are very mellow with the only flavors coming from cane syrup, vanilla and fresh lemon juice. They are very cake-like in texture, hence the name.

You will get back on track I am sure. We all have faith in you.

Take care,and drive carefully, Simonbaker!

Wakes are a great time to reconnect, hope you can relax and have some fun despite your loss.

We just got home from our weekend trip to see our son and his family. We had a wonderful time. We went to a Veterans Day parade on Saturday, played on Sunday. My grandsons love to have us visit and we brought along their Uncle too! Such a nice time. Family is one of my favorite things! I'm so glad that I fell in love with my Hubby years ago and started all of this! :)

Thank you. I really can't think of a better way to spend my time than to be with my family.
