It has been a very productive week since last Thursday!

I left my house on Thursday of last week to go two hours away to Columbia, SC to help my best friend clean out her storage building, well we got it done...and it looked really good.  We then went to the local hangout where a lot of her friends(bikers) and a few of mine hang out.  It was a nice visit to get to see people I haven't seen in a while.  On Friday I didn't think we were going to be able to come back to GA due to the bad storms we were having.  But finally we made it home, right at dark.  Saturday, I got the pleasure of teaching my friend how to make bread and homemade pretzels.  She loves to cook and she does bake a little but not much.  so it was so much fun to show her how to make them both.  Everything turned out great.  Edwin, her boyfriend, cooked supper Saturday night and it was amazing.  Thanks Edwin.

Megan, gave me so many gifts too.  But I really have to tell you about the pretty purple leather zipper bag for my purse.  It as a letter 'P" on it and I just love it.  But while she was here she also cleaned my outdoor kitchen, and boy oh boy did it look so good.  She didn't have to do anything while she was here but she is always surprising me and doing something.  Thank you Megan...Love ya Girl.

Today, I attempted my hand at making snickerdoodles.  I have always loved them but have never made them before because every recipe I saw called for cream of tartar which I've never had on hand.  Well this recipe called for corn starch instead.   So I gave it a try.  I will tell you that these turned out so good that they will be made again.
Just put in oven

Wow look how they spread


  1. We love snickerdoodles here too. I have yet to make homemade pretzels, but it sounds delicious.

  2. They are good aren't they...I hope you try the pretzels they are not hard at all and are so good...
