  10. Hey Wendy, here is the link on my blog that gives this recipe..but you need the safs-instant yeast and the liquid lecithin..so if you can get them in your area and a kitchen aide mixer you are in business..:)http://catnapinnprimitives.blogspot.com/2010/10/making-bread-knitting-pumpkins-swaps-in.html
    let me know if you make it..and if you need to add more water..use only about a 1/4 cup..but I put in a few drops at a time to see where its at..you want it sticky but not runny..;)it should pull away from the sides in a big ball in the middle.:)

  11. Oh, I forgot....

    The thing I love most about Christmas is baking cookies with my middle son. We started this tradition when he was about 8 yrs old and have been baking cookies every year since.

    Oh and I love going to the tree farm and dragging the family from tree to tree only to come back to the first one that I picked! LOL! They whine and complain but that's half the fun! LOL!

  33. What a wonderful job you did on the reindeer. As a new follower (that makes 113!) I would love to be entered in the give-away.
    It's hard to think about Christmas as I am enjoying the great Halloween music you have on your playlist and saw the walking skeleton at the top of the blog. Too cute! The hounds are howling and my Corgi keeps looking at the computer.

    Coming from a very big family, there wasn't always much money for presents at Christmas. I learned to be grateful for having all my family together and eating Mom's special mincemeat cookies. I still get some every year.


  34. Hi Trisha and welcome to all my new followers!
