Times they are a changin...

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'

Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin

And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand

Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last

For the times they are a-changin'.

Yeah... this sums it up!

Be good to each other!

♫ On the first day of Cookie~Palooza ... Tawny gave toooo Yooooouuuuu!!! ♫

Photo and Recipe found at Recipe Rhapsody

Cinnabon Cookies!!

I found this recipe a few weeks ago while doing a bit of blog surfing and thought to my self... YUM!

Boy was I right!
I made these this afternoon with the tiny diva and oh-my-gosh.
They are sweet, yummy bits of cinnamony {is that a word?} heaven!

Here is my tip to you... unless you have a restaurant sized kitchen aid, DO NOT double the recipe!! LOL! We had a bit of dough explosion teehee!

So here you go! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies
recipe by Jenny at Picky Palate

2 Cups sugar
1 Cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
(I added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract)
1 Cup sour cream
6 Cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons softened butter, (slice 2 Tablespoons 6 times totaling 12 tablespoons)
1 1/2 Cups packed light brown sugar, divided into 1/4 Cups
1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon, divided

8 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
2-4 Tablespoons milk, to thin icing

1. In an electric or stand mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream until well combined. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined.
2. In 2 batches, place in plastic wrap in a disc shape and chill for at least 2 hours for best results.
3. Once chilled, cut each disc into thirds and roll into a 1/8 inch thick oval, about 12 inches X 5 inches on a floured surface. Spread each rolled pieces of dough with 2 Tablespoons softened butter, 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. (I forgot to soften my butter beforehand so I just slightly melted it in the microwave and mixed in the brown sugar and cinnamon, then spread it over the dough in a thin layer.) Start rolling from the long end closest to you, rolling into a log shape. (I wrapped the logs in wax paper and refrigerated for another 2 hours at this point because they were too soft to cut and got all smooshed.) Using a sharp knife, cut 1/2 inch pieces of dough then placing onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
4. To prepare frosting, beat the cream cheese until softened and smooth, slowly add powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency. Frost cookies then place in refrigerator until ready to serve. These are 100 times better chilled, trust me!!
Makes at least 6 dozen

I would LOVE for you to share your favorite holiday cookie recipes with me!
And who knows... I might pick your recipe to make, photograph and put on the blog!
Just email them to me at... !

Enjoy the cinnabon sugar cookies!
Be good to each other!

15 days into thankful...

I came home today to find 2 packages waiting for me... mysterious.
"I have not ordered anything recently"... I think as I kick off my shoes.
Then I see that all to familiar handwriting... my daddy. It cant be a birthday present... he already sent that. So what oh what is in those boxes!

I got everyone settled and sat myself on the couch to tear into those mystery packages!

The minute the seal was broken and I peared inside those boxes the tears began to fall. Tears of joy? yes. Of sadness? yes. Gratefulness? YES.

My grandmas photo albums...

Pages and pages of history... from her days as a girl on the farm.

To her life in the big city!

And so many more!
Just through the pics I see so much of me.
And boy was my dad a looker! ;)

So, today... I am thankful for my history. ALL of it, on both sides. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Thank you Daddy for the best gift ever and for my history.

I love you all...
Be good to each other.

What am I thankful for??? Today this was hard...

I really wanted to just blow this off today... just to be honest.

But I made a promise to myself that I would find something, no matter how small, to be thankful for each and everyday this month and put it into words.

So, today my friends I am thankful for situations that push me towards my dream... Im sure that the person who put the events of today into motion had other more sinister plans... but I hate to inform you {just in case she reads this} all you did was push me in the direction that I needed to go! So thank you.

So thats it folks, sort and sweet.

What are you thankful for??

be good to each other...

Im in love with BUNTING!... and a yummy sunday dessert!

Okay... all I have to say is ...


I could have sweet bits of bunting in every room of my house... and I now want it atop each and every cake I make...

Ive been addicted to bunting for awhile now... but I spent the day today catching up on my blog surfing and it was everywhere!!

In my blog hopping adventures today I came across a feature of esty seller


These sweet buntings stole my heart! And she sells a DIY kit!! so cool!

And this is a really cool idea as well... and very cute!

And in honor of cake bunting and the chill in the air, your sunday dinner recipe is...

Caramel Apple Spice Cake

Ingredients{Serves 12 to 14}

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, {plus more for pans}
1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and grated {4 cups}
1/2 cup apple cider
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups pecan halves (5 ounces), toasted dark and finely ground in a food processor
Brown Sugar Swiss Meringue Buttercream {directions following}

1.Put 1/2 stick butter into a large nonstick skillet. Using the tip of a paring knife, scrape seeds from vanilla bean into skillet, and toss in pod. Cook over medium heat until butter is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in apples, cider, and 1 cup granulated sugar. Raise heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and cook until apples are golden and translucent and liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Discard vanilla pod. Let cool.

2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans. Dust with flour, and tap out excess. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Reserve 1/4 cup flour mixture.

3.Beat remaining 2 sticks butter, remaining 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, and the brown sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Reduce speed to medium, and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce speed to low. Beat in flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with the sour cream and scraping bowl as needed. Add remaining 1/4 cup flour mixture to apple mixture, and toss. Fold in apple mixture and pecans.

4.Divide batter between prepared pans. Bake until tops are dark golden brown and a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack. Run a knife around edges of cakes to loosen. Unmold cakes, and let cool, right side up, on rack. (Cakes can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 3 days.)

5.Assemble cake: Trim each cake so it's 1 3/4 inches high. Place 1 cake, cut side up, on a cake stand. Spread 1 1/2 cups buttercream over top. Place remaining cake, cut side down, on top. Spread 1 cup buttercream over entire cake. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Spread remaining frosting over cake. (Cake can be refrigerated, uncovered, overnight.)

Brown Sugar Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Makes about 5 cups

5 large egg whites
1 2/3 cups packed dark-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 sticks (2 cups) unsalted butter, room temperature
1.Put egg whites, sugar, and salt into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk until mixture registers 160 degrees, about 4 minutes.
2.Beat on high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form, about 6 minutes. Reduce speed to medium-low. Add butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition (meringue will deflate slightly as butter is added). Beat until frosting is smooth and glossy, 3 to 5 minutes. Buttercream can be refrigerated airtight for up to 3 days; bring to room temperature, and beat before using.


Be Blessed and be good to each other!

A month of thankfuls...

So alot of my facebook pals are posting one thing they are thankful for each day of November... at first I was all eye rolling and scoffing... {my mood hasnt been what you would call "happy" lately} Then I remembered something someone told me once... "forced joy is better than genuine depression." and so I decided that it was high time I snapped out of it!

So I'm joining in the Thankfulness... here on the blog!

Im 6 days behind... so I better get started!

Welcome to MY month of thankfuls!

#1 My Home...
We live in a teeny tiny house... but its OURS... and I love it, I grew up in this house... have raised my family here, so many memories. I love it.

#2 My kids...

Who wouldn't love these scallywags!

#3 Im thankful for my hubby... things have been kinda hard lately, but I know we will make it through... we always do!!

#4 Im thankful for my job... I have the coolest job around! YES at times I fall into the feel sorry for myself state that we all fall into... but really if you think about it... I have the coolest job!!

#5 Im thankful for Nyquil... I have been drugged for the last 24 hours trying to get over the death... and I think Im finally on the mend.

I want to run and hide...

Here looks like the perfect place dont you think?

Its been one of those months.

The kind of month that makes you want a do over... to jump in bed and pull the covers over your head till it all goes away.
And that makes me really sad because October is so magical... but I cant find the magic anywhere... it must be hiding.

Be good to each other will you... please? For me?

A Sunday Dinner Dedication...

The tiny Diva and I spent a bit of our afternoon with our Granny today... I always love watching Bella interact with her, and find it amazing that she explores that house the exact same way I did as a child... why is underneath my grannys dinning room table so exciting?

My granny, 86 years young... forgets who I am sometimes. But she ALWAYS remembers that tiny diva!

This is my granny... at 18. You can read a bit more about her HERE

I found a few treasures while we were visiting... my granny and grandpas Marriage licence {astoundingly beautiful!} and a trove of old cookbooks!

I imagined her in the kitchen, apron on, searching for the perfect recipe to make my grandpa for dinner... and wished Chris and I could take a time machine back to 1951.

After a bit of begging, granny let me take this beauty home...

Yeah... that's a Sears and Roebuck cookbook!!!

Its more than amazing! Filled with all kinds of helpful tips for the American housewife! Today I learned how to pack an attractive and healthful lunch for my husband and children... {"The men in the family will prefer spicy condiments and sauces on their sandwiches, while the school child will like a mild more delicate flavor."} I am so in love!

As I was reading bits and pieces to my chef I came across a marked page and knew exactly what today's feature would be...

My Granny cooked most of my meals as a child, and out of thousands of dishes... there are 2 that will always remind me of her... Pink Stuff {which we will get to closer to Thanksgiving} And her waffles!

There was nothing in this universe better than my Granny's waffles! One of the best gifts she ever gave me was her waffle iron so I could make Sunday morning waffles for the kiddos!

I hope you enjoy...

JoAnna Dodson's Waffles

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 whole eggs, beaten
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
16 ounces buttermilk, room temperature

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, soda, baking powder, salt,cinnamon and sugar. In another bowl beat together eggs, vanilla and melted butter, and then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter onto the iron cook until the waffle is golden on both sides and is easily removed from iron. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven until ready to serve.

I know its simple... ridiculously so... but I sware you can taste the love and the magic in every bite.

Be good to each other!
♥ Tawny

she also gave me a 1936 copyright Pride and Prejudice... my all time favorite book!

The witching hour is almost gone....

Am I late??

My broom broke down on the I95 and I had to hitch a ride home... there is nothing like a hitchin witch!

But that wont make the party stop!

The table is set...

The guests have arrived... they dont mind my tardiness {the undead rarely do}

and even the coven came to the soiree...

The best friends a witch could have!

Are you ready to eat?
The menu is set...

and the butler is ready to serve...

Its such a special occasion that I had to break out my special cook books... from my dear love Edgar, he was a wiz in the kitchen!

And to quinch your hallow~thirst fill your cauldron with our Sunday Dinner Recipe...

Butter Beer:

The Traditional Hogsmeade-Style Butterbeer recipe was originally from the Hogwarts Celebrations,
now appearing annually for Halloween by popular demand!

Makes 2 quarts.

1 cup butterscotch schnapps
7 cups cream soda (almost one 2 liter bottle)

Carefully mix just before serving, adding the schnapps to the soda then stirring gently to mix well, or the fizz will dissipate too soon. To keep butterbeer on hand, pour 1 cup cream soda out of the 2-liter bottle, quickly add 1 cup butterscotch schnapps, and recap the bottle. I did make a refill batch using 1 cup schnapps to a whole 2 liter bottle of cream soda, which was ratio of 1 to 8, but people tasted the difference and complained, so fair warning!

There is not much alcohol content in the butterbeer mixture, just enough to make a house-elf tipsy and to give it the warm, buttery aftertaste to the fizzy cream soda. Yum!

All your wizard friends will love it!

Be Blessed, Have a fantastic Halloweek...
Be good to each other!

Did you hear that??

Can it really be only 4 days till my very most favorite Party of the year?

It was the faint sound of cackles in the distance that reminded me!

The moon seems just... about... right.

Im gathering such wonderful things for our bewitching event... I cant wait to share them all!

it seems as if one of my sisters has missed her landing!

And in doing so, to much chagrin... THIS happened...

That EVIL sister of mine fell and crushed my sweet friend... and coworker... and fellow blogger... Bobbie's hand! What a horribly horrible witch! {and yet such a snappy dresser...}
Hope your hand is okay BOBster!

Sunday Dinner... fall desserts!

Have you heard? The canned pumpkin shortage is OVER! Kitchens and pumpkin lovers across the country are doing a jig!

THIS artical reports that last year around the holidays, canned pumpkin was being sold on ebay for $6-$7 a can!

I for one LOVE pumpkin... and mostly use fresh... {but we do like to keep a few cans around the house just in case we need it!}

And I thought to celebrate the return of canned pumpkin to american kitchens I would give you my all time favorite cheesecake recipe!

2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For crust:
In medium bowl, combine crumbs, sugar and cinnamon. Add melted butter. Press down flat into a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Laura has many different cozie designs and colors, and the vintage inspired ones are simply darling! Your saturday morning coffee needs these!

Okay... I was trying to drop a hint to the chef about this bag... I said "oh this would be perfect with my new fall boots!"... I said "honey, look at this adorable bag... isnt it perfect for fall?" and even got a bit more specific when I told him "THIS IS WHAT I WANT YOU TO GET ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!"... his response was "its white... you will kill it the first night you take it to Edna's" UGH. He doesnt understand. So Im gonna treat myself! {insert super big grin here}

Located in Europe NZL Bags on Etsy has soooo many delicious bags! I cant decide.. do I want the cream or the orange?? ..OH or maybe the moss green!! OH LORD the decisions! Get your orders in with her now... because I have a feeling this girl is gonna be BUSY when Christmas rolls around!
