What does lemon verbena have to do with bike riding and Lavender Cookies? Let me tell you…

It all started with my husband’s bike riding and running (he is so addicted to it). A couple of years ago after his bike rides or runs he would come in and tell me about a beautifully landscaped yard just one block from our house. He would stop look and sometimes take pictures. Not too long afterwards I became friends with Susan, the homeowner and person responsible for this beautiful yard. She’s a Master Gardener so that explains what is going on […]

Frosted Molasses Cookies

Nice and spicy and for my Christmas Baby who turns 40 on Christmas day.

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all are spending the holidays with family and friends and enjoying some of the recipes I have posted here. My son and his family in Chicago will be spending their Christmas in Minnesota this year and I sent a box of these cookies to the in-laws house for him to enjoy on his birthday — ohhh, my Christmas baby. Seems like just yesterday we were rushing to the hospital in Louisville to meet our first born. He was born […]
