Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Off the Charts

Yesterday I was stunned to discover this blog on the WordPress Top 100 Blogs. It was #87, near the bottom, but I was astonished to even see it there at all, and delighted. Alas, such success is fleeting, and it was only for the one day. Checking this morning, I am now off the chart.

In the meantime, it is so much fun watching what people are downloading – Mom’s Fruitcake. Christmas Divinity. There is such a need out there for EASY recipes for time-challenged Christmas celebrators.

In the meantime, dear ones, time is flying! If you need two easy recipes, these two are the very easiest: Chocolate Macaroons and Russian Tea Cakes. Happy baking :-)!

  6. AbdulAziz – Naaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! I’ve just been trying to encourage the inexperienced that there are EASY ways to do a few simple things. I hesitated blogging for a long time because I didn’t want to be boxed in to any one topic . . . as you can see . . . I’m here and there and everywhere . . .

  10. Sic transit gloria – I’ve been on and off every day now for almost a week. It’s the recipes, people desperate for things that are good and easy. Soon, I will fade back into oblivion. . .
