We are preparing for a big feast this week! I love big feasts, don’t you? This year, the cottage will be full to the rafters with family and friends. We’ve got some love and romance going on, some big challenges, and some adventure, too. We have very interesting guests…artists and stylists, lawyers and builders, IT execs and foodies, and one special little boy. When they all arrive on Friday, we’ll share a big welcome dinner, and the conversations will go on into the wee hours, fueled by tall tales, much laughter, and proper measures of Southern whiskey. I am thankful for many things this year, but most especially for the fact that we will all be together.
When it comes to growing Christmas trees, Oregon leads the way. Here are the stats: Oregon is the nation's leading Christmas tree producer. An estimated 6.4 million Christmas trees were harvested in Oregon in 2011.
Did you know today is World Diabetes Day? I didn’t either and if you take a look at my blog you can easily understand why. I bake absolutely nothing that can be called diabetic friendly, well except for these Pumpkin Cookies I made last year for my friend Carolyn and this beautiful Cranberry Cheesecake which happens to be both sugar and gluten free.
