Hello from Alaska! I have read your blog regularly for a while now but I think I have failed to comment. I love your recipes and have several planned for the future. I haven't been cooking much due to being pregnant and cooking is necessity, not enjoyment right now. (I usually love to cook) I pray you and your family weather the storm well.

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for commenting! Wow - Alaska! I hope your pregnancy goes well, and that you are soon feeling better and can enjoy cooking again. :-) I remember not even being able to look at food while pregnant!

I just made these cookies with my kids yesterday for the first day of Fall. They were sooo good! :) And fun. My kids had a blast!
