  1. Here I am innocently going through your site and you throw those goodies in my face!! :)

    As I am new to the new diet restrictions in my life. Pictures like those delicious, God sent, fulfilling, stress releasing, treats you have posted are simply not right!! God bless!

  2. Those are a "must make" at Christmastime. Just like we have to have cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting for breakfast on Christmas morning. I'll make my next recipe a healthy one, though!

  3. Each year our neighbor would make us a batch of those white, round, gifts from God.

    While they were a bit warm I'd get a tall, chilled, glass of milk and proceed to eat about a dozen of them. Sorta like "Turkish Delight!"

    Now I look at pictures wondering where things went wrong!


Thanks for sharing!
