German Christmas Treats Cookbook by Angela Schofield

Update On My Mom

Thank every one for their prayers and outpouring of support. My mom is still adjusting to hospice, but she and the rest of us are elated that she was able to come home to spend the rest of her life, in quality, and in her home. The cancer has taken over her body and has weeks left here on this earth so we spend quality time.

The hospice team still hasn't been able to provide relief for my mother's pain. They are working on it.

My two sisters are her primary caregivers as the three live together. However, I come up and spend time with her. In fact, I arrived today and won't be going home Saturday so I can take care of her. I set up my "office" in the corner of my mother's room by way of a TV tray and a sports outdoor chair. As she sleeps, I write or edit, and when she is awake, we spend time talking.

Please continue to pray for my mother.


I can't believe that a couple of days Christmas morning will be here. Do you know what that means? Holiday gatherings and parties. Either way, you're going to need cookies. Now, you don't want just any store bought cookie to enjoy during the holidays. So, today's author, Angela Schofield, has given us way to bake cookies in her book "German Christmas Treats Cookbook."

I took a preview of her website and is it a pleasure. There are lots of things on her website, including some freebies. So, after you read about her book and her interview, go to her website and enjoy.
