My Mixer Died

Well, I apologize for leaving everyone in the lurch for the past two weeks! Since my last post I: had company, prepared for and hosted my husband's change of command reception, baked for a bake sale, baked for Thanksgiving, killed my mixer, went home for Thanksgiving, killed my diaper bag, and today have been without running water during my normal dinner prep time (hello pizza delivery, also very thankful for the water bottles I had filled and stored in my pantry).

Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies

While perusing Pinterest (of course) I saw these yummy cookies from The Cooking Photographer and had to give them a try. They are fantastic! I also found they were much better if you microwaved them for a few seconds to soften the caramel before eating. Please be careful not to overheat them in them in the microwave so you do not burn your mouth! Below you will find Laura's recipe with my my comments in italics and in green.

Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

This summer I was having the worst time with fruit flies congregating around my bananas. I'm not sure how they got here but they thought they were here to stay, until I set a trap for them that is. This trap requires no special materials, most of which you probably have in your home. I hope this helps you as much as it did me!
