Yard work and Fall Decorating

It’s that time again! A new season approaching and Fall cleaning continuing as the Autumnal decor goes up, the crafting bug starts again & yard work begins to prepare for the next season in the garden.

Gluten-Free Petit Fours

In my household, we have always loved our mid-afternoon tea time. We used to do daily when my children were younger and would return home after school and my husband returned home from work. By the time my children were older and away at college, that tradition changed except for an occasion here and there….

4 Ingredient Cookies
