  1. Looks so yummy!
    What does the sign behind your stove say? The South? Can’t make out all of it.
    Love what I can read though!

    • Hi Melisa! That’s one of my favorite things in our kitchen . . . we love living in the South! Here’s what it says

      The South

      The place where . . .
      1)Tea is sweet and accents are sweeter.
      2) Summer starts in April.
      3) Macaroni & Cheese is a vegetable.
      4) Front porches are wide and words are long.
      5) Pecan pie is astaple.
      6) Y’all is the only proper noun.
      7) Chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy.
      8 ) Everything is Darlin’ .
      9) Someone’s heart is always being blessed.

      While I’m kind of a transplant (maybe – I grew up in FL but lived in KY for ten years . . . however my mom’s family is from PA so I didn’t ever think of myself as a Southerner!), we really do love Alabama. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to stop myself from typing the word y’all in a post! (I used it a lot when I talk, but it just looks different when it’s typed!!!) 🙂

  2. I’ve lived in Fl, GA, and AL. I tell my husband that I refuse to move north of the Mason-Dixon line, lol!

  3. just finished baking my first batch and these are delicious…and simple. i can see these being made on a regular basis

  4. I see you have a batch on a baking stone. I cook everything on stones!! Love them. Going to try this recipe today!

  5. This is a great recipe!! I’ve made it with chocolate cake mixes or a brownie one, and they always get rave reviews!!!

  6. How many cookies does this recipe make? They look yummy and easy.
