A few moments to share...

Nutmeg Logs are the go to cookie in my family.
Some people hoard them and hide them.  
You know who you are.
Who's that pointing a finger at me?

As you can see, I'm a girl who likes her sweets.

I saw this cookie recipe on Eat Cake For Dinner.  Jenn made them with pink frosting- I made white frosting because I wanted to add some orange zest.  These cookies are big and old timey bakery style.  

I did a lot of cooking.

Sophie did a lot of watching.  Very careful watching.

 I had to have a peppermint lemonade while I was making soup today.  This will get you in big trouble with your dentist.  Hey, it's Vit C.  It's nutrition.

The caramel pecan sauce is everywhere, but not for long.
I eat it with a spoon.  It's perfection all on it's own.

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas...
Have another cookie and call it a night.

I've got a sugar coma to sleep off.
Sweet dreams, my friends!


  1. These look delicious! Sophie is adorable too.

  2. Oh my gosh--It all looks so delicious--and your little helper is as cute as a button!!! xo Cindy

    You know they're all gone! Magoo ate the last one today. Why don't we eat these all year? We need to start a new tradition for Valentine's and maybe the 4th of July to break it up a little. Ya think??? I thought of you with each and every one I popped in my mouth!
