About Me

6:53 PM Kathy Roberts 2 Comments

Hi! I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Kathy Roberts. I live in a very rural area in the mountains of western North Carolina, but I'm originally from just south of Chicago. Being from the city and now living for the past 23 years in a very rural area I have found that no matter where you live family and friends are the most important things to me. I love big gatherings, cooking, talking, and spending time with the ones I care most about. That's where the name of my blog came from. During the holidays  we do a lot of baking here and every year we try to add new cookies and recipes to our list. A couple years ago we, my daughters and a few of the grandkids, added a recipe for snowman cookies. It's a simple cookie, like a sugar cookie but better. To assemble them you make 3 balls of dough, different sizes and place them in snowman fashion on a cookie sheet and bake. After they've cooled, decorate with different colored frosting...everyone here liked them so much they wanted more after the holidays so I would make the largest size ball which would have been the bottom of the snowman and bake them so they are just a round cookie which we still decorate with a drizzle of different colored frosting, and they are affectionately known in our house as "Snowman Butts". As for the "Candy Crush " part of my title, my kids tried to bring me out of my computer illiteracy by introducing me to Facebook. They created a monster...I found Candy Crush and that was what I did in my spare time...I was addicted!! I'm trying to kick the habit now starting this blog. I'll share some of my opinions, my thoughts, and the chaos that goes on in day to day life here. I hope you all enjoy.
