I am 44 years old today!  Life sure flies when you’re having fun!  Besides my fabulous children, my sweet husband, awesome friends and loving family we all know that I love cookies and so today I thought I would keep things simple. 

I have more cookie recipes on this site than anything else and that is because I just can’t help it.  I love to make them, eat them and give them to others.  I am constantly thinking of new ways to recreate them so that I can share them with you here.
