Sugar Cookies with M&M'sChef Dolores used the Baker's Choice Sugar Cookies Cookie Mix from Aldi and added an additional large egg and a little over a cup of M&M's and the cookies are delicious. It is an easy way to make cookies that your family and guests will enjoy. We buy the large containers of M&M's at Costco and always have a supply on hand. Blue Asters, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland USA IMG 0089Canon PowerShot G11 CameraPhotograph by Roy KelleyRoy and Dolores Kelley Photographs

Nongshim Premium Tonkotsu RamenChef Dolores served bowls of Nongshim Premium Tonkotsu Ramen, noodle soup, for our lunch at home. Each bowl comes with a packet of spicy sauce. We enjoyed the ramen. This good choice for quick preparation (four minutes in the microwave). We got this selection at Costco but it is also available at many other stores. Torch Ginger, Etlingera elatior, (ginger flower, red ginger lily, torch lily, wild ginger), Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania USA IMG 0592Canon PowerShot G11 CameraPhotograph by Roy KelleyRoy and Dolores Kelley Photographs

My Christmas Card List by George A. Gladden, Sr. This poem is often included in Christmas letters to friends and I thought you would enjoy it. Best wishes to you and your family for a Very Merry Christmas! My Christmas Card ListBy George A. Gladden, Sr. (1935-2005)I have a list of folks I know, All written in a book, And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look. That is when I realize These names are all a part, Not of the book they're written in, But of my very heart. For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime, And in that meeting they've become the rhythm in each rhyme. While it may sound fantastic for me to make this claim, I feel that I'm composed of each remembered name. And while you may not be aware of any special link, Just meeting you has cha...
