Merry Christmas and Much Thanks
This time of year is hectic at work, dangerous on the roads – (just trying to drive from A to B without getting whacked by a SUV driver with a phone plastered to their ear), the malls are wicked crazy and our Internet connection isn’t always top notch….which is why I haven’t been able to leave some of you comments. (Cause of the Internet connections – I keep getting the timed out page…grrrrrrr)
The “Can-You-Hear-Me-Now” guy and his company is definitely not on the ball.
I’d like to take this time to wish you all a happy Christmas and thank you for following my blog!

Ok, who wants a little cookbook?
With some time off work I am cleaning out recipe books (among other things which I have collected over the years). I thought I’d offer the ones scheduled to depart the household to you kind people (or anyone who comments, you don’t have to be a follower :-)
First to go off the shelves will be the thin volume of Sticky Steamed Puddings, published by Koneman. It’s very thin, only 64 pages total, and I found just three puddings that I would attempt to make. So it’s off to a new home or the break room at work.
The back of this booklet reads, “British people have long enjoyed a wide variety of baked or steamed cake-like desserts known as puddings. A good old-fashioned sticky or steamed pudding makes a wonderfully indulgent treat.” And blah blah blah…about impressing your family and friends…..
A winner will be announced December 29th ….just leave me a comment and tell me your favorite dessert. That’s it. Comment once a day if you’d like. I’ll count each one as an entry.
If I can not get online before Christmas have a great holiday. Stay safe, warm and happy!
