Confession time…I ran away for the weekend?


Nick and I have run away from home…. can you guess where we were???

We had a blast and it was the perfect get-a-way!!!!

Our warehouse employees have participated in a little Holiday Cheer and each have decorated a stocking to decorate the warehouse…


I am a little impressed with one in particular..




Can you tell what it is?  My son Jake loves his Jetski…can you see the man hanging on while he is doing a flig?  Notice the waves??? I must advice him a little on his sewing skills though?  He used mostly staples…LOL..

In my last post I showed you my cookies I make every year…here is the recipe:  Star Cut-Out Cookies  Enjoy!!!!LB

    Hi Lisa,
    I have a handy hint for rolling out sugar cookies and you don’t even need to chill the dough over night. Roll the mixed dough between sheets of parchment paper. Place the rolled out dough, still on the parchment paper into the freezer on a cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes. cut the dough into the desired shapes and bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. The other bonus with this method, is that if the shapes for your cookies are complicated, it’s easier to keep the desired shape as the dough is stiff from being chilled and you’re not adding any extra flour to the dough. See you in Temecula!

    Thanks you for the recipe and for clearing up the shortening. There is no such thing as butter shortening in Canada but we will enjoy the recipe with the straight stuff. The Christmas books is well worth getting for all the rest of the goodies.

    I thought Jake’s stocking was creative and then I read that he used staples! That is too funny. Thanks for making my morning!

    Hi Lisa, Thanks for the receipe, I wonder how they would turn out using butter (no shortening)? I’ll give it a try for Easter cut out cookies. In the “olde” days they used the fat right from the animal. Well, I don’t want to go back to those olden days-butter sounds old enough for me. The buttermilk sitting overnight sounds so good. I have a receipe from my grandma for oatmeal muffins that does the same thing w/buttermilk, yummmm. Vegas sounds like lots of fun ;-) Merry Christmas, Debby
