Vintage Cookie Recipe: Cocoanut Oatmeal Cookies

I love reading old cookbooks – the unique names, different spellings, recipes I couldn’t even imagine cooking, interesting directions (or lack there of).

Jordan Girl’s Night Out & the birth of the clock

OK, time for my first blog. I’ll be doing some catching up for a while, and likely a bit long winded, since this is just the beginning. So many good intentions. My hope is to bring some of the musings, the inspiration, from the innkeeper’s mind. Maybe artistic, maybe historic, maybe philosophical if my husband gets…
