Now that I have your attention… I am excited to share that my friend and fellow blogger, Deanna Martinez has a new cookbook coming out and it is all about COOKIES!!!

Deanna tells about it in her blog post: Family History and traditions with Author Deanna Martinez-Bey

OKAY! Maybe I am spoiled because I already have Deanna’s Cheesecake cookbook…so there is that…

Here’s what I like about Deanna’s recipes:

They are easy to follow

The ingredients are practical

The recipes are created by someone who has proven herself in the food world

So…you might want to check out her new book:

This is totally voluntary and I am not even getting cookies for telling about it…at least, I don’t think I am…”Oh…Deanna…!”

Baked from Midwest Sun in Strawberry Fields to Table

Photo by Polina Tankilevitch on Pexels.com

Many summers ago, in Iowa’s July heat, we spent a day.

Sun baking my freckled skin, I knelt in the wild strawberry patch.

My friend nearby, reminding me when I wearied, of the promise.

As night came, and we were back to our Illinois homestead,

we set the table with whipped topping centermost.

With growl inducing scents of batter to steam

from the waffle iron, we started losing our cool.

Sitting at the table, holding holds for grace,

we were indeed grateful for our day,

Ending with strawberry waffles.

Time to Get Up!

Taking his job seriously, Daddy was always up at 5 a.m. and almost as early on the weekends, making sure he and the household was up and on time for events of the day.

A fine Saturday morning, I was in a deep slumber, when Daddy came knocking on my door. “Time to get up, you are going to be late for school!”

Rubbing my eyes and jumping from the bed, it took me a moment or two to realize it was Saturday and no school.

Daddy laughed and laughed and then announced that breakfast was ready.

You couldn’t argue this, Daddy was on time and he made the best breakfasts I have ever tasted, so there’s that and I soon forgot his joke, until I told it many times since.
