Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon Buns

Sometimes bloggers have to make sacrifices for their readers. And such was the case last week, when I posted a picture of cinnamon buns that was met with a response for the recipe. And so, I had to make them again. Which means that I had another 9×13 pan of cinnamon buns to eat. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it. As a side note my forehead has completely broken…

Great Joy

Rumor has it Monday is Christmas. Like what? Normally, I’m Mrs. Christmas. I love the season. The carols, the cards, the baking, cinnamon spice and everything nice. Garland, Christmas trees with red ribbons. Lights wrapped around the entire house. Oh, how I love the quietness and the stillness on Christmas Eve.

The gold from the soybean fields mingled with the flaming back drop of trees to make everything look like it was on fire. And now the blaze is dying down and grey has taken over the world. With the greying of the fields, trees, and sky I have…

How to Make Pumpkin Puree

Truth be told, life is not going as planned. Do you know what my plan was? 5 kids. Yup. 5. I figured by number 4 they’d just be walking out. So 5 shouldn’t be that bad. Know how many kids I have? Not counting goats or dogs, I have none. Not a 1. I was going to have them all by the time I was 30. Then I would have…
