Good Morning Everyone!

   Haven't been on in a while.  Lot's going on here in Tennessee.  Moved mother in law in with us from New Jersey.  Workin out okay despite the Alzheimer's diagnosis.  Will keep you posted.  I decided to bake cookies for the next couple of days.  A local organization is having a fund raiser to help a little boy with heart issues with his medical bills, so part of the cookie baking is for that.  I am making my world famous chocolate chip (can't give out the recipe, sorry) but they are to die for.  I made carrot cake cookies yesterday.  Peanut butter and surprise cookies (which I found the recipe for on Allrecipes website).  Would love some new ideas and recipes for cookies.  Gearing up for my next entry in the Rubbin is Racin spice rub contest at Bristol Motor Speedway for the August race.  Won't be the same without Jeff Byrd (R.I.P.)  I am hoping the protein will be chicken and I can dedicate my recipe to Jeff.  Not sure what rub I am going to do, will "wing" it when they announce the rules this year.  Thanks everyone for your support through my blog and send in those cookie recipes.  Have a great day!

My cooking tragedies
As with any cook, I occasionally have recipe failures. No One Ever Sees Them!!!! When I was about ten my mother became very ill and it was then that I started my cooking career.
