congo squares recipeMama’s congo squares cookie recipe has been in this family for over 60 years.  I can almost smell the congo squares in the oven. In 1954, the Tate family lived in Pendleton, SC. We loved to gather round and “lick the bowl” while they baked! Mama always made congo squares for church picnics, long trips in the car to visit relatives, and of course at Thanksgiving and Christmastime.
Note: “Lick the bowl” involved using a long wooden spoon to scrape the bowl of unused dough and eating it — yes, uncooked! Read the rest of this entry

coloring books for senior womenColoring books for senior women have come a long way, baby! When I started this fun new hobby about 4 years ago, adult coloring books were hard to find. As more and more of us discovered the joy of simply coloring a few minutes a day, more and more artists created beautiful books for us to color.

You can find funny coloring books, floral coloring books, and even inspirational coloring books. Like so many of you, I am busier than I have ever been in my life! But I always take 15 minutes a day for coloring. Coloring helps me to focus, to rest my mind and relax a bit. I even have coloring on my daily list of things to do! If you have not tried adult coloring books yet, now is the time. Read the rest of this entry
