COFFEE SOUP

I think this old-fashioned recipe should be the next big thing. It does have some rather odd ingredients like butter, sugar, coffee, and crackers, but I just tried it again and it was delish! My Mom and Grandma Martha would make coffee soup for me on weekends or if I was sick or I think when we had nothing else. I totally forgot about it, then the other day my Mom and I got to talking about funny things like coffee soup and milk toast...

good girl!

It’s not often my design world & baking world unite, but in this case, it was an act of love. Ollie, one of the dogs in my life inspired these biscuits named Ollie’s Kookies. Of course, she supervised the baking and had the final sign off on the label design! We give them out as presents to her friends and sell them around town. If you want to make them for your pups, here’s the recipe. I have been perfecting it for a while...
