My sister had a birthday and I made her some and both her and my daughter asked me where the chocolate chips were???

Also, I had to laugh when my sister told me that her cookies were the best birthday cake ever. Ha ha. I know that she isn’t big on chocolate cake and even though she likes white cake, she likes a little cake with her frosting.

I too like frosting, and I like about any cake, with a lot of frosting. I’m glad that she enjoyed these Easy Frosted Pumpkin Cookies!

Well it is a new year and I decided that it is time to do a little cleaning. I got some of the outsides of my cupboards cleaned yesterday. I was thinking about painting the cupboards and then after washing them, and how much work that was, I decided that I like them the color that they are.

I have a lot of cupboards, and I do not think that I could stand having my kitchen torn apart for about 4 months. I am pretty sure that that is how long it would take to do the job right. However, it seems a little crazy that it is more expensive to have someone paint your cupboards than it is to get new cupboards.

But after cleaning them yesterday, I can see why. Well, I will just have to think about what to do. I will give it a few weeks thought, or months, or maybe years, and then I will be back in style if I just wait long enough! Happy spring cleaning you all!!!
