I am Back!

Hello all my dear friends,
ah it feels like forever! Life has been so busy... there hasn't been anytime to entertain my sweet guests at the blog party. :)
Last Thursday my dear aunt came in town, and all us girls headed down to west palm beach and stayed in a hotel on the ocean! We had such a wonderful time...and I am so thankful to the lord for those precious bonding times with my dear mother aunt and sisters!
But alas that is not two days we are leaving for Texas! 
No greater joy is putting on a conference and our family is ecstatic. :)

Now I know we havent had time to post lately,  so we have decided to exstend the party, and go on untill november!

but enough its time to move on to the party!

Because autumn is a time of smells. And fun festivitys...its one of my goals to try and make our home smell pleasant and enviting.
Ideally I would love to bake apple pies and pumkin bread all day long...but as you isn't always like that. :)
So one of my favorite things to do is gather up all of our fun spices like cinnamon nutmeg allspice and cloves And trow them into a small pot of boiling water and let it simmer throughout the day... after an hour or so,  you'll be smelling cinnamon all through out the house! And it givest hat warm comforting smell of fall we all love! There's not precise amount of spices... this is something you can be creative with...last time I added a tea bag which really made things smell sweet...but I will say, be sure to check it every now and than and add more water.:) 
Hope you'll try it! 

Thanks for stopping in !

The Very First post of our Blog Party!
Because Fall Is a time Of Smells and yummy treats!

For those of you who follow me on Pinterest you may have seen me pin this This One...
But hey...Whats pinterest for any way? :)

~Candy Corn Sugar Cookies~
2 Sticks Butter, softened
1 c. Sugar
1 Egg
2 T. Lemon Juice
2 t. Lemon Zest
1/8 t. Salt
3 c. Flour
1/2 t. Baking Soda
Red Food Dye
Yellow Food Dye
1/2 c. Granulated Sugar (for dusting)

Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt. Continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda, beat until well mixed. Divide dough into thirds. Press one-third of the white dough evenly into the bottom of a loaf pan that you have lined with foil, wax, or parchment paper. Place another one-third of the dough into a bowl and add yellow and red food dye to make orange (refer to the chart on the back of your box). Once it is mixed evenly, press orange dough evenly over white dough. In another bowl, add the final amount of dough and dye yellow. Press that evenly over the orange dough. Cover and refrigerate until firm (2 hours or overnight is best). Once chilled, invert your loaf pan and unwrap your dough. Flip it back over and place it on a cutting board. Cut loaf crosswise into 1/4-inch slices using a sharp knife, trimming edges to make even, if necessary. Cut each slice into 6 wedges.
Place 1-inch apart onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes in a pre-heated 375 degree oven. Place cookies straight into a bowl with sugar and coat. Place coated cookies on a baking rack to cool.
