I know the holidays are over but I would like to talk about holiday cookie mix that my husband came home with. The cookie mix was in a mason jar, they were filled with M&M’s, flour, and brown sugar. When I saw this I asked him what it this for? “For cookies,” he said. Then he showed me the directions the jar came with.
“Restoring The Flavor to Holiday Cookies” What it said, right at the top. I loved this whole idea. A jar filled with three main ingredients and all I had to do was add salt, butter, egg and vanilla to the it. Ok, this works I thought lets get the grand kids and make them together.
Now Sophie emptied the jar into a large bowl.
Then I added the other four ingredients .
As they baked I kept a watchful eye on the cookies for I did not want them to burn. I am good at burning, not so good at baking. Done! I was so happy.
We made holiday cookies with a jar.
Who would have thought!
And even better, I get to keep the glass jar!

If you love sweet potatoes, and beans, you are going to just super love this soup.
It’s easy! It’s sweet! It’s healthy! Three great combinations all in this pot.
The recipe calls for one can white cannellini beans. I used two cans of beans, kidney beans and chick peas…these beans worked just as well as cannellini beans…I would say even better. Oh, don’t forget to puree portion of the soup, this will give you a thicker consistency.
Oh, how sweet it is!
