It’s out in the world now. The Thirteenth Gate is a Christmas story about a runaway. It’s a magical tale.
Clarissa, a teen raised in foster care, runs away in the middle of a Christmas snow storm and learns valuable lessons from a mysterious old man who may hold the secret to her future.
The smell of lemon cookies baking transports me back in time to when I was a little girl and being in my grandmother’s house. She baked the best ever lemon cookies. I loved them- they were so soft on the inside and yummy with just the right amount of tang to set your mouth alight.
She passed away when I was fifteen and I still miss her to this day. Not a week goes by without me thinking of her. The closest I’ve ever gotten to those cookies again (and believe me, I’ve tried some recipes) was when I bought some lemon flavored Grandma’s Cookies. As soon as I opened the pouch, I was back in the late
60’s-early 70’s. The taste even lived up to my memories.
Sadly, I usually only see the other flavors like chocolate chip and peanut butter when I find Grandma’s Cookies. I need a supplier to stock the lemon ones near me
Today is the 100th anniversary of Oreo cookies! What a wonderful invention. I’ve had a love/love relationship with the chocolate wafers for my whole lifetime. I can’t imagine a world without these little yummies, can you? I’m not a fan of frosting but the cream inside an oreo is heavenly.
If I could only have the wafer or the cream for the rest of my life, I’d pick the wafer for sure. YUM!
Gotta go. Time to get a refill and pass the milk while you’re at it.
