Finally back from China. We had fun, as we do on all our holidays, but would never go back nor recommend the trip to others. Some of the cultural treasures ie Terra Cotta Warriors, Great Wall, Forbidden City etc. were amazing but waking up every day to polluted grey skies, a dirty Yangtze River, and cities with 30 million people took the joy out of it. Specially if you come from relatively clean and underpopulated Canada. We've done extensive travel in Europe where the population is quite dense, but the cities are clean, livable, with well kept antiquities. Nearly every holiday we go on ends with us thinking we would like to rent a house and stay a couple of months to investigate further, this one ended with "Take me home!". Could be the first holiday we've come home from where we lost weight, their Chinese food was not that great. We went to a small gourmet style restaurant where the food was the best Chinese food we've ever experienced in our lives, but were told this is an anomaly. The best part was the Chinese people, very helpful whenever we got lost, mostly happy and very friendly, beautiful very treasured children, and very safe everywhere we went. Glad to be back,
Elizabeth

Default this weeks cookies

Here's our cookie for this week. Light and sweet, and GF just for me! Folks, if you get Sunset mag, these are the sweet treats that are on the front cover and page 86. Easy to make and even easier to eat!!
To think I used bake and eat all those other cookies, oh how I long for a good Snickerdoodle!

Hilda,

I'll send you a copy with the mail that will go out tomorrow! I want to try them with toasted coconut in place of the peppermint and white chocolate. I may use the itty bitty chocolate chips too. I'll get your address form the teapotters list.

Hugs,
Jennifer

Mutnik, they are melt in your mouth goodness! Lucky for me the DH isn't that fond of peppermint! And when I make the coconut ones, he doesn't like that either! Does eating them while on the treadmill make the calories null and void?

Oh Oh Jennifer, me too. With Christmas coming I'd love a new cookie recipe. Maybe we could make a trade. What course would you like to have a recipe for. I have a great Christmas pudding sauce recipe called "Sterling Sauce".

Hi all,
I make these amazingly cute cookies that look like little mice. I was waiting until I made a batch so I could take a picture of them. Here is the recipe:

Spicy Mice Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 c. icing sugar
2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp sea salt
hand full of natural sliced almonds (ears)
a few chocolate melts or chips to melt for eyes and nose

Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Beat butter and sugar until creamy. In another bowl whisk flours with spices. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed butter and sugar. If it becomes hard to mix everything together finish the blending by hand kneading until you have a smooth dough. Measure out level tablespoons and separate. Take each tablespoon of mixture and toll into a ball then shape the ball so it is elongated and shape one end with a bit of a point (to resemble a mouse shape with a nose shape end. Take two slices of almonds and push them in for ears. line them all up on the baking sheet about an inch apart then bake for about 20 mins. Cool completely. Melt the chocolate (when you melt chocolate if it seizes up or won't go liquid enough melt a small knob of vegetable shortening into it) Dip a skewer or toothpick into the chocolate and dot on the eyes and nose. See the picture.

Cathy, have fun on that enforced vacation!

I have been pretty much MIA around here - just too many irons in the fire and sometimes even my most favorite thing to do has to go by the wayside!

We just got back from a quick trip to Durango, CO for our oldest grandson's college graduation - fun family time! We even had good weather and were not in today's storm.
p.s. Can I brag a teeny bit? He has a degree in chemistry with additional emphasis on biology and physics and managed a 3.8 GPA.

Cathy, it is pretty there - guess we get spoiled and don't appreciate it as much as we would if we did not spend a lot of time in CO!
We enjoyed being "down town" Durango and watching families headed for the special Polar Express train - kids wearing their pj's which is apparently a tradition for that.
The other grandson works at the bars and restaurants in the old Stater Hotel so we had a family dinner at the Diamond Belle there - what a fun atmosphere.

Dorothy, I too love the Durango area, well the southwestern part of Co, okay the whole western half of the state, but I'll have to agree with Cathy, it's sure is nice to not have to deal with the snow! I would love to take a ride on their version of the Polar Express, even in my pj's!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. About a week before Christmas my sister just 3 years younger than I am had a seizure (her 3rd). Fifteen years ago she had stage 4 breast cancer which she survived but she was in a drug test group for tamoxifin and in the early testing stages they overprescribed leaving her with a much weakened heart. She has already had a heart attack but these seizures are a new thing. For a period of 4 days she spoke gibberish and hallucinated. She is amazingly brilliant and writes financial computer programs for huge corporations so to see her like this was devastating for the family. She is recovering now and once they figure out the cause of the seizures I'm sure she will be back to normal, at least her mental capacity has returned to normal. We just got through that emergency and on New Years Day our daughter called to tell us
her husband had gone to the store and texted her that he was leaving her. We thought it strange he didn't come home for Christmas with her. What kind of person sends a text he is leaving? anyway her emotions are all over the map and I'm on the phone to her a lot, and when I'm not on the phone I'm worried about her. Thank goodness I pushed her to get a good education and she is a very successful lawyer, so at least she has a good career to keep her going. She is heart-broken. Needless to say, my mind is not on card making. Tomorrow I'm going into the craft room to do my yearly clean up and maybe that will get me inspired to create.
Happy New Year everyone,
Elizabeth

Oh my goodness, Elizabeth, am in tears reading your post - have added your sister (name?), your daughter (name?) and you to my prayers immediately - what a horrible shock all the way around - Asking God to help your daughter and you all to get through this turmoil and restore your sister's health! God bless you!

Elizabeth - sending hugs and prayers. I cannot imagine how devastating these events are.
On a positive note - we have two friends who have had seizures, and it is good to know that treatment is available - All the best to your sister and daughter as well as to you.
