Happy Holidays!

I am such a lucky daughter! My mom baked and mailed me cookies (and divinity!!) -- SO delicious. What a treat!

My lemon rosemary cookies, lime meltaway cookies and chocolate cayenne cookies are ready to go in the oven for tonight and tomorrow's festivities.

Be safe and have fun!

Winter Solstice Celebration

Music, games, chokecherry wine, meatballs (made with organic pork, pine nuts, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg), polenta, salad (made with spinach, cheese, pecans, and rosemary roasted beets), and many various cookies, lighting candles with our intentions for the coming year, and gift giving. What a wonderful evening!

It makes the holiday joy last longer.
