Another Christmas gone...

Living room is a mess but I had to take it down...Looking forward to next year...

Leek, onion and potato soup...homemade by Larry

William leaving for final Air Force duty station in Tucson, AZ
:O(

I made a Brick Street Cake!!!  SO excited how it turned out...SUPER moist, an almost brownie fudge texture! 

Just a chart to help us all make better cookies...as if I need more cookies...

An apple cobbler done in the crockpot...

Just another pretty face...

Crystal and Tim's Toby...worn out!

I made peanut brittle for Christmas dessert...and...

Reeses Peanut Butter Gooey Cream Cheese Bars

Cinnamon Roll Cookies...and...I just used puff pastry, rolled it out, applied melted butter, white sugar and cinnamon...baked at 400degrees for about 8 to 12 minutes.

a red and black ribbon cake...my own concoction...

There's always two in the crowd...always!


Well, how was your Christmas and New Year's celebrations??  Hope you all enjoyed family and friends!  We had a sweet time.  Got to visit with the grandson William before he headed off to his next Air Force assignment in Tucson, Arizona.  Don't know how long he'll be there but Larry and I will pack up the motorhome and head over for visits.
It's finally started acting like Winter here...cold and rainy.  This is definitely not my favorite season!  Give me Spring...rainy and warm, any day.
We both seem to be holding our own in the health department (knock on wood).  Nothing major other than seasonal sniffling.  Hope it stays that way.
Hope you all are well...hard to do this time of year.  Hopping over to check on you!
The recipes will be posted on my cooking blog if you want them.
The Brick Street cake has a link to the recipe under the photo...

I wish it would start acting like winter here...I'm so sick of the heat and horrendous humidity!

Great pics, Donna....that rose is stunning! And the food...very tempting. The soup looks delicious, but it will have to wait for our cooler weather. I'm not going near the stove at present! :)

All the very best to you and your loved ones for 2019. I hope it treats each and every one of you kindly. :)

It's so nice to meet you, Donna! It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. I live in Texas, too. Thank you for visiting my blog. May you have a wonderful rest of the week.

GIRL! That tree and that William-man and that cake and that cookie guide and that cobbler and that pink rose and that dog and that brittle and those bars and those cookies and that cake and those darlings! You're killing me over here. I need recipes, pronto. Especially for the cinnamon roll cookies. Out with it. xoxo
