Sock-it-to-me Cake

Sock-it-to-me Cake

Canning Fresh Tomatoes!

I am thrilled that one of my loved ones has agreed to participate in Friday’s Friends!  Please meet my cousin Amanda.  She was raised in Texas and I in Pennsylvania so we didn’t truly get to know one another until we became adults.  She is a lovely southern lady with a lot of sass.  On […]
