Heavenly Hash Cake
  My grandmother was my best friend.  This isn't typical, especially for a twenty-something to say her grandmother is her best friend.  I never went more than a few days without talking to her on the phone until she was put into a nursing home because of de...

Ruby's Pineapple Pie
I know I said once a week.... I got a little sidetracked, but for a very good reason, though.  Last weekend the boys and I went on a little mini vacation to Tulsa, Oklahoma.  We spent 3 days with my best friend, Traci, and her daughter, Annie.  Annie is six...

Christmas is getting here way too fast this year.  We are in the middle of an "Ice Storm Warning" around here.  That means we are totally home-bound for a couple of days if you want to believe the forecast.  Since I have some extra time around the house on...

Peppermint Divinity
    It's beginning to look a lot like....well, you know.  Since I work retail, my holiday season really started about a month and a half ago.   Now, though it seems like everyone is getting in the swing of things.  There are decorations all over the stores ...
