Pecan Sandies With Mini Chocolate Chips

I have lived in my current house (only house, besides the parent’s) for 4 years…Besides the parent’s house, which I have tendency to still call home, it is the longest time I have ever spent in one location.  2 years of dorm life, followed by 3 years in one apartment, followed by 1 year in anotherContinue reading “Pecan Sandies With Mini Chocolate Chips”

Pine Nut Cookies (Pignoli Cookies)

Why am I watching Law and Order SUV SVU ?  I hate this show.  Why don’t I change the channel?  The remote, is well, in a remote location … i.e. on the kitchen counter…ARGH!   The situations that the show features scare me half to death- makeing me want to live in a bubble, with me and my future catContinue reading “Pine Nut Cookies (Pignoli Cookies)”
