Joining the blogging community, in particular meeting Christian blogging ladies, has opened a whole new world for me. I have very few Christian friends, in fact I am related to most (!), therefore the fellowship and encouragement I receive from other Christian ladies is so important. So THANK YOU. On particular lady has been very encouraging and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading her blog - so if you haven't visited Mrs Mara Wildflower's blog (link), please do, she is a lovely lady full of encouragment to other women like us.
Mrs Mara Wildflower ran a little giveaway just before Christmas and I was honoured to receive one of the her gifts. It arrived in the post yesterday and I opened it with much excitement.
It is a beautiful hard-covered book full of cookie recipes which I can't wait to make (and share with you). Do come and visit and we can enjoy afternoon tea together.
However with 100 recipes to choose from, it is very difficult to make a decision on what to make first. However I did like this one - I love peanut butter cookies, but I don't own grape jelly, so I might have to find something else that goes with peanut butter - perhaps quince jelly or apple jelly?
This one looks good - I love coffee flavoured food, but who could go past the double choc cookie or the snickerdoodles cookie full of pecan nuts and cinnamon. Do you see my dilemma, where do I start? When I buy a cookbook I usually sit on my favourite chair with my yellow sticky post-it notes and mark all the recipes I would like to make. I usually end up with a book full of sticky labels!!
