It's may not officially be Summer yet but It is definitely close around here. I know some of you are already having 100 degree weather. Whew!
Who wants to heat their kitchen in HOT HOT weather? Not me! So today I am offering up a Humdinger of a cookie that is No-Bake. Now this is a bit of a Holiday thing but who cares? When you are craving a cookie in 100 degree weather, this one will fit the bill.

So whip up a batch and get outta that kitchen y'all. It's Summer Time!
PS. I will be adding more no bake cookies for the Summer.

Remembering and Honoring

As we are blessed to enjoy this day with our families and our friends let us remember those who so bravely gave their lives so that we may have this freedom and safety that so many do not know.
Today, I am honoring these great men and woman who fought to keep our country free. I am honoring those who have died, those who survived, and those who are still fighting and protecting.
To every American Soldier I say this... I am blessed to be a free American citizen. The pride for my country runs deep and I am forever grateful to each and every brave soldier for this.
Not only today but everyday, I will pray for you, for your families, for your safety.
Thank you for giving so unselfishly of yourselves for my freedom.
May God bless you.
