I'm exhausted....don't have as much energy as I used to have.    I did make a full recipe of Nikki's Outrageous Brownies.  I cut them into large pieces and put 15 in each of two bakery boxes that I bought at a local party store.  I plan to offer them to the charity auction tomorrow.   The crumbs were delicious.    I also made some chunky peanut brittle yesterday and packaged it up in some very cute red boxes with handles.  I had about 1 1/4 pounds in each box.
Then I made a batch of the pumpkin spice cookies on this site (with chocolate chips and walnuts) for my granddaughter.  She has been craving pumpkin goodies, and since she doesn't get to come home again until the middle of December, I thought I'd send her a little taste of home!!!

Barbara - Whew!  You should be exhausted after all of that baking and candy making.  When our kids were younger we did a lot of baking for bake sales for their various youth groups and I must admit that I miss that activity.  Now my husband and I go to bake sales to buy the different goodies and to support different groups.

Nikki I made the cranberry almond cake today and have one word to describe it  FABULOUS.  I made it in a 9x13 because it is easier to store in the fridge than a bundt. Came out great.  I think I baked it about 55 minutes.  Thanks for the recipe.

My husband LOVES chocolate crinkle cookies that only his youngest sister makes at Christmas for him-a family recipe that only she's perfected.  I've seen/tried many versions over the years but none compare to hers.  She doesn't share recipes & last two years cookies aren't good-like she's rushing to make which turns out a bad cookie...either over kneaded, burnt, too small, whatever.  A shame

I don't understand people who won't share their recipes.  I figure if someone asks for your recipe, it is a compliment.

I am so glad you liked it.  I never thought of doing it in a 13X9 and you are right it would be easier to store both fresh or cutting squares to freeze. 
Not only does it taste great I think it is a very pretty cake.

I have a very dear friend and he and his wife hesitate to give recipes.  They will give them to me but it is because he knows me.  They have found that many people do not follow the directions or use the ingredients called for then wonder why the recipe does not "come out right".  People will use large eggs rather than jumbo eggs called for or other substitutions that for one reason or another will not work. 
I will share any recipe, I figure I got the recipe from someplace and anyone doing a bit of "googleing" would be able to find the same recipe. I do like to add notes where I have had problems, found a short cut or I will give a description what the texture should be. 
I think I like to share recipes because I like to collect and you can't ask for recipes if you are not willing to give out recipes.

Could you possibly ask her for the recipe so you can make the cookies for his birthday or for your anniversary?  Maybe making them at another time of year when she is not so rushed might help the consistency of the cookies.  And if you ask to help make them that might be the birthday or anniversary gift for that year.  
As I have mentioned here before my parents died while I was pretty young.  I have no family recipes that I can go to.  I would love to make my Dad's Beef Barley soup, spaghetti sauce or his cold slaw.  My Mom made a coffee cake that was amazing and I still have not a clue how to make the dressing I stuffed myself with at Thanksgiving and Christmas. 
So I can not stress enough how important it is to write down family recipes and keep them alive for the next generation.

GRANA here;
 you would think that by now we would be tired of turkey?! Well hubby isn't! He walked to the store this morning& came back w/ 4 turkey breast cutlets( for me) & 4 turkey drumsticks for himself.
I had planned on making hamburgers  & fries tonight ( an easy change  from turkey reruns; but he really wanted turkey bones &  I baked one up for him.He forgot the yam or squash so I made peas &  pearls (onions) for us both.He wanted dressing  ( stuffing made outside the bird in a casserole)& even brought home celery for it but I just  don't want it or to make the  stuffing

Well tonight we finished the last of the turkey that was not placed in the freezer.
I am now looking forward to making turkey soup.  By the sounds of the forecast this weekend just might be the perfect time to do it. 
I do have to make a few things for my meeting on Monday.  I said I would bring the treats I searched for something new and I decided to try making a Kringle type pastry.  The recipe is for an Almond Puff Loaf.  The recipe makes 2 so I will do one with Apricot preserves and almonds the other I will do with caramel and pecans.  The pastry is in 2 layers, 2 different types of dough.  The bottom dough is a dense sticky  buttery dough the second layer is the same dough that you make for cream puffs.  The second dough is spread over the bottom dough and when it bakes it puffs up and the result is a dual textured pastry.  I will let you all know how it turns out.  http://www.kingarthurflour.com if you would like to check it out.
I have also made chocolate covered pretzel rods to bring to everyone and I have the fixings out for a pan of fudge that will be wrapped up as well.

I made my turkey soup today.  We have a wood stove in the basement so it cooked all day, making the house smell great.  We had the soup for supper and it was really good.  I used the broth that it made while roasting.  I put all the bones into the pot along with the veggies and some barley.  I usually put barley in all my soups (except lentil)
Nikki I will check out your pastry.  King Arthur has some really neat recipes.  I have some in my email that I haven't checked out yet.  I get emails from king Arthur seversl times a week.

No baking in my house yet.  Too busy taking care of Mom(released from rehab last week) to even think about baking cookies yet.  Besides, everybody in my family seems to be on a diet lol.
