Back to reality….

I’m easing (very slowly) back to reality after my cruise last week.  So no new recipe today.  But I did want to share that, for the fourth year, I’m joining the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. If you’re a food blogger, I hope you’ll join me in a fun event for a good cause. For the rest of you – look forward to lots of cookie recipes.

The swap benefits Cookies for Kid’s Cancer and is alot of fun.  Each blogger (last year over 600!) makes and sends a dozen cookies using a new recipe to three other bloggers and (the best part) – gets 3 dozen in return!  In past years I’ve made…

Hmmmmm, what to make this year??  You’ll have to wait ’till December 15 – the day of the big reveal.  By then you might be in the cookie baking mood.

Sorry to rush the season a little……. and to think, a few days ago I was lounging under a palm tree, listening to the ocean lap up on the shore….
