Gluten-Free Baking Week Since I have been talking so much about baking and cooking this month, I thought it would only be fair if I took note of Gluten Free Baking Week. This is a week dedicated to sharing recipes that are gluten free. These types of recipes are a welcome thing for people that have celiac disease or some other form of gluten intolerance. This is something that most of us take for granted every day. Eating whatever it is that we please. So many folks have to deal with different allergies and food intolerance and watch everything that they eat. Gluen Free Baking Week has many local restaurants offering new gluten free dishes and offering cooking tips. Here is a great cookie recipe for those who want some holiday snacks without the gluten. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (G...

Nobel Prize Day Today is Nobel Prize Day. This is the day that all of the Nobel prizes are awarded a ceremony celebrating those accomplishments that have earned the honor. The history of the Nobel prize: Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite, is the founder of this prize. When he died in 1896, he had made a will in which he bequeathed his money to a prize which was promoting development of peace and the progress of the living conditions of mankind. He directed that the scientific prizes were to be delivered in Stockholm and the prize of peace in Oslo, the capital of Norway. Norway and Sweden were united at that time and known as the peaceful countries of the world. Winners of 2009 Nobel Prize: Physiology or Medicine- Carol W. Greider Physics - George Smith Peace- Barack Obama Chemistry...

Cotton Candy Day Who doesn't love cotton candy? The sugary snack has become linked to so many of our family outings and activities. You can find it at the carnival; at the fair; at the circus; at the zoo. Anywhere you go - there it is! Cotton Candy was originally called Fairy Floss. It was called this because it was made with Flossine sugar. The first Cotton Candy machine was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. They brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. So to continue with my December Cookie theme, here is a recipe for Cotton Candy Cookies: Cotton Candy Sugar Cookies  Prep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Ingredients:   1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup powdered sugar 1 cup butter 1 cup vegetable oil 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon...

December 6th is St. Nicholas Day   Saint Nicholas was known for his kindness and generosity. December the 6th has been celebrated as Saint Nicholas Day for centuries in Christian countries around the world. This Holiday is celebrated still to this day, mainly in Northern Europe. It is said that id children leave a shoe outside their door at night, the morning of December 6th, they would find coins or small candies as gifts. A very popular celebration for families is to have someone dress up as Saint Nicholas and visit the home. This is when the children and family "examine the conscience". Good behavior is awarded and bad behavior is admonished. This is seen as great way to get everyone on a good path early during Advent to prepare for the Christmas Holiday.

December 5th is Bathtub Party Day It seems like there is a day for everything. On Saturday, December 5th, we celebrated Bathtub Party day. This is a day to relax. It was created as a day to relax with friends. It is said that we need to invite some friends over and share a bubble bath with a glass of bubbly.. Not sure who has a bathtub large enough to handle a party - but if not, use a hottub and enjoy your friends company and a good glass of Champagne. Here's To the Bubbles (Tub and Drink of course)

National Cookie Day   I'm not sure why all of my posts this week have been about cookies... I guess I'm in the mood. Welcome to National Cookie Day! Today is a great day to have a glass of milk and some cookies. If you are the cook in your home, bake up a batch. If not, I'm sure there is a local cookie store not too far from where you are. A little history lesson on the cookie. The English word "cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little cake. Bakers used to place a small amount of cake batter in the oven to test the temperature. They soon discovered that these little bits of cooked batter were quite tasty on their own, and the cookie was born! As an added bonus - Here is the Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Level: Easy Prep: 15 min Cooking: 9 min Cooling tim...

Operation Santa Paws. While we are celebrating with our family and friends this time of year, we will enjoy plenty to eat and drink. We will give gifts to our loved ones and enjoy the sounds and sights of the Holiday lights and Music. Even with all of this going on, many of us recognize our blessings and do our best to give to those that are less fortunate than us. We donate our time at the local food bank; donate toys and clothes to families in need. It is a wonderful time of year for all of us to give back. To those that do - THANK YOU, you are making a difference. There is still one area that is forgotten about around the Holidays. The animals. We all like to give out the cute puppies and kittens as gifts to our little ones. We don't pay attention to the older pets available to us at...

For the past decade or more, home loans have tended to be anything but basic. Complex loans, such as those that feature interest-only payments or option Adjustable Rate Mortgages, have been the rule, rather than the exception.  The sheer complexity of the home loan marketplace can leave the new home buyer frustrated and confused. In addition, these complex loans are, at least in part, intertwined with the economic downturn in the housing market.Option-AMR mortgages, for example, allowed the borrower to defer their interest while they made payments on the principal. This worked fine, until home prices began to fall. At that point, payments rose and the deferred interest payments caused many mortgages to increase while the value of the home dropped. This created a huge loss for the lender...

PURCHASE A HOME WITH NO MONEY DOWN So you are ready to buy a home but with this economy, who has the huge down payment? Most lenders that you speak with will tell you with no money down, they can't get you a loan. NOT TRUE!!! I am very happy to tell you about the Economic Development programs that are now available. As a direct lender, I have access to this exclusive Government sponsored program. It will allow you to purchase a home without putting any money down! Wait, it gets better..... The credit underwriting guidelines have been relaxed as well. This means if you were not able to purchase a home before due to credit, we might be able to help you now. Just change jobs? That used to be a problem. Now with the economic development program, we can work with that as well. What is the E...

On friday, I participated in a DAR field trip to the Plains Conservation site in Aurora. Colorado history has always fascinated me, especially since my husband's family homesteaded here back in the mid 1800's. As a former member of "The Shady Ladies of Central City" I have spent many hours studying the roles of women in the settling of the West...from soiled doves to wives of military men...all trying to survive in a harsh environment. So visiting this preserved rendition of an old homestead had special meaning to me. Touring the small home built of sod and mud, to sitting on the stiff, wooden bench in the one room school house, I could imagine the hardships our families endured as they set down roots in Colorado.  Even as the suburban developments creep towards this beautiful park, you...
