I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only is it dead simple, it tastes far better than anything I have purchased.   What I like is that I control the content of the soup, so if I want more carrots or...

Butter Cut-Out Cookies

First, HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!  Second, I need to apologize to you all.
