Since Columbus Day cookie baking has been in full swing for me. I plan to have all cookies done before Thanksgiving as I did last year, when I was able to create a wonderful cookie tray to share on Thanksgiving. I plan to make this a yearly tradition. When do you begin cookie baking?

But I have decided to cook-through my Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book which I acquired in the mid 1990's. … Continue reading I’m going to cook this book
Here in PA Dutch Country, many people say 'Filling' rather then 'Stuffing' for that wonderful, tasty, scrumptious side next to the turkey. Some people actually put it in the turkey but I don't do that. I prefer to make my Filling in a dish by itself. My favorite is the Old-Fashioned type and recently we … Continue reading My Favorite Filling (You call it Stuffing)
