This has been a busy week. The book had three events that required lots of cooking, I took dinner to a sick friend and provided Titans snacks. So by yesterday afternoon when a request for lasagna came through, I have to admit that I just wasn’t up to it. …

If you read about the Jelly Pies yesterday, then you know that Anna and I love to have some new craft project to try. Usually it’s knitting – sometimes painting, but this time we went for another favorite – a food craft. I don’t usually write about something that requires special equipment – but this was just too much fun to pass up and must be passed along. …
