The Gift of Giving

Give the gift of recommendations

Do you end up running store to store trying to figure out what to get your colleagues for the holiday?

Well, I used to be one of those frantic people until I realized that people don’t need more things. They need cookies!
Just kidding..

While many of my colleagues and friends are getting a box full of my famous cookies, there are many other “free” gifts that mean so much more than material things.

Last year, Joe Mechlinkski of EntreQuest challenged the EQ readers to think of new ways to give to the people you spend many of your waking hours with. The one idea that I’m thinking of doesn’t require a single penny. It doesn’t require a whole lot of time. You don’t even have to leave your comfy office chair or couch to make happen.

I happen to think that this is a marvelous idea.

Christmas Cookies to the Rescue!

One of my favorite childhood memories is filled with love, laughter, and FOOD! Cookies, to be specific…

I would be my mothers helper as she whipped up batch after batch of sugary goodness. She would set the dozens of different types of cookies out in the living room on old family silver tiers, trays, bowls, and more. It was hypnotizing to walk into the room and see all of the different cookies, colors, and smells. I never knew which one to feast my eyes (and fingers!) on. The decision was tough.

Once I moved out, we attempted to bake cookies together once again, but it seems like father time always got in the way. This year, I’m feeling a little nostalgic in the spirit of the holidays, so I’ve been on a baking spree this week. Many people have asked for the recipes, so here they are! All 26 of them!

Happy 4th of July!

In my spare time, I enjoy crafting – crosstitch, scrapbooking, card making and drawing. In honor of our independence, I made a few cards for friends and family… Enjoy your July 4th!
