And then there was snow~

It seems that in February we are going to get all the snow we had not had yet. So when I am stuck in the house I bake, purge or clean. Today I baked. These little hand pies were a big hit in my house.
The recipe makes 8 little pies. Just a nice amount. Except they disappeared quickly.

I choose to use a blueberry filling, but you could use most anything your heart desires;
I found the recipe on the King Arthur Flour site. I love this site and have never been disappointed with anything I have made from here. This one will be into my Go To book.

One of my projects is to neaten up my recipes. I have books of clipping and printed sheets. I want to make a Go To book for all the recipes I use all the time and save the binders for when I am looking for something more or different. I will share these later on.

Oops, notice one is already gone? Well I had to taste test! Yum!
Do you have a favorite website or storage idea for recipes? I have a large red binder that is too cumbersome. Then 2 smaller binders for deserts and cookies. My recipe box that I have had for 43 yrs. I still know which cards are in there, some from my Mom, some from others no longer with us. I am too sentimental to get rid of that. So what do you do?

I am making progress on the Cricut. Their customer support has been oh so helpful. I am learning about the many layers on the program.

Happy February 1st

The weather feels like Spring! Wow it is 60 degrees and the girls are enjoying their time outside.
The rest of the snow should disappear today!
 So I felt like making an apple pie. What is it about sunshine and warmth that makes me so happy?

I have another question. I just bought a Cricut machine. I wanted to use it to make signs.....I did research and looked ALOT. Now that I have it, ahhhh it seems complicated and I am not sure I can do what I want. Does anyone else have experience with it? I have been watching tutorials and am a bit frustrated to say the least. HELP???
