Okay so maybe I am not a good photographer or maybe these are not photogenic or maybe it is a combination of both. But I am a good cook and baker. At least I'd like to think so These are light, chewy and delicious. Remember I said I was going to start using my cookbooks more? Well these are the product of that. They are from a very old cookbook.
Our new dog Caina has been settling into our routine and I have been adjusting to her presence. She so favors my husband. She gets excited to see any of us but my husband is her main squeeze. When she awakes she heads right to his feet. When he comes in the door after being away for the day she jumps up and down and spits purple jelly beans. Well not really but nearly.
