Berry Delicious

It is the beginning of berry season at our favorite local farm, the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island.

We purchase almost all our produce from the farm from the beginning of June until the last day of October.  And sometimes we even u-pick our strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries!  Portland/Vancouver residents are so fortunate to have this family friendly farm located just a few minutes from downtown Portland

Double Frosted Bourbon Brownies

Make these delicious brownies for your sweetie for Valentines, or even better for "just because".


A moist, rich brownie full of walnuts, sprinkled wth a little bourbon after baking and topped with two layers of frosting. Not only are they yummy, but they keep well in the refrigerator for several days. (Bring them to room temperature before serving.)

Of all the cookies I bake, these are my husband's favorite and the cookie recipe I get asked for most often.

So... lets get started. Begin with the BROWNIE LAYER.

Valentine Cookies!

Guess what I've been up to these last few days!

Visit Diane's post from last February at CraftyPod to learn more about my annual Valentine project. Valentine's Day is, after all, the best time of year to let people know that the things they do for you all year long are appreciated.

So here is the cast of characters in this year's production, including some recipes and a few preparation tips.
