  1. We have had snow. It is still on the ground. I still use your make ahead mashed potato recipe. It is now a tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I remember your rolls they are yummy! Stay warm and have a good day. =)Karen

  2. Update on weather. It is now 5 degrees here. It got down to 4 degrees. I thought it felt a little cold when I went out in sweats to take out garbage this morning. LOL!

  3. Loving all the recipes and the Christmas Village is wonderful!

  4. Wow, these are some yummy sounding recipes. Thanks for sharing them. I am going to try the rolls.

    It has been snowing for most of 2 days on this side of the state. We have about 6 inches on the ground now. I love it! It is so pretty!
