My favorite recipe is licorice carmels, sooooo good, but this year not too many!!!

I love the Christmas bulb pillows! Our family always makes divinity at Christmas and lots of fudge. My favorite is white chocolate peppermint!

I like my Yam Souffle, it is so simple but sooo good

Yes I have a favorite recipe it is Chinese Fried Chicken. It is time consuming to make but so worth it and leftovers can be frozen and heated later. But I guess I love to sew more and could sure use a new machine. Thanks
