We've had a taste of spring. Granted, the cooler temps this week are a bit of a step back, but the large mounds of snow are greatly diminished, the days are longer and when the sun shines you definitely feel like spring has arrived.
Baking cookies and giving them to friends, neighbors and co-workers is a time-honored tradition of the holiday season.
A quick glance at my email showed me that no fewer than three friends spent a big chunk of the weekend mixing, baking and frosting.
For some reason I was looking closely at a bag of celery that I recently purchased. There was a promotional stamp on the package touting the benefits of celery including that it was a good source of Vitamin A.
Cream cheese frosting
1 3-ounce package cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
In a mixer bowl beat together cream cheese, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy.
When you get a nice fall day, the last thing you want to do is to be standing around the kitchen cooking. We all know our nice days are numbered and there are always those few last chores to be done before the snow flies.
