There and Back Again

Yep, like lots of folks, we went to see the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey today. It made me mad.
Now I have to wait two years to see all of it.

But seriously, it was great. You'll enjoy, though I think if I didn't know the story I'd be a lot more frustrated at the wait.  :)

Digitizing the Cookbook

If you all haven't figured it out, I've been taking the recipes I've collected over the years and typing them up to post here. I'll keep adding to it over time.
We survived Thanksgiving, and now I'm in the mode to holiday bake. Expect the next few things up here to be dessert recipes, and there may be multiple versions as I figure out lo-carb versions, and/or gluten free versions to my favorites.
