Success!

I am vindicated.

I baked another batch of the molasses cookies and they aren't disgusting.

Bless you, unspoiled Crisco.

It's a Christmas miracle.

I also received an extra-fun pre-Christmas surprise. My newspaper tree is featured today on one of my favorite decorating blogs - The Lettered Cottage.

Huzzah!

  7. It takes courage to fight back against rancid crisco. Great job. I will pop over to The Lettered Cottage, although I fear finding another wonderful blog to get hooked on.

  8. Yay! I hate it when cookies turn out bad... in fact when they turn out, I don't want to eat them so I have the proof!! Congrats on your feature... your tree is truly one of the best that I have seen in awhile.

  13. I am SO glad that The Lettered Cottage led me to your blog! I love it! I just read the post about how you are not a decorating, cooking, etc blogger. I define myself in quite the same manner!
