Percolating along.....

while baking this morning..starting with Chewy Pecan Pie Squares - easy, easy, easy and YUMMY!

I will then be moving on to Pumpkin Cookies, which are a little bit of a pain to make....but sooooooo worth it.

Then, if I have time, Non-Pariel Butter Cookies and Banana & Toasted Walnut Bread.

But the BEST NEWS of this Holiday Season so far is........


that I found a BRAND NEW, still in the box, late 1950's/early 1960's Fostoria Percolator last night at a local resale store for $2.99...brought it home...cleaned it up this morning and it works perfectly!

For those of you that enjoy coffee and haven't tried using an ol' school percolator...start asking relatives if they have one they no longer use, or search your local resale shop - because it heats the water to boiling and percolates it thru the coffee...thus making the BEST coffee outside of going to the Dunkin store.

from now on....coffee galore

Or you could just go to Target and pick one up!! Ron gave me one for Christmas last year. I love it!!! It makes the best cup of coffee ever.

Cool find! I use to have one of those, guess it moved to Colorado w/ a lot other stuff "I owned".

As for me, I like the Bialetti Moka Express. Got to have my espresso on the Metra!

Hi Susan,
It's molly cullinan...i saw your posted comment on our family blog. I had no idea you'd left a comment b/c I didn't notice you could. However, it is nice to hear from you and hope all is well! Tell PJ and Anna I said hello...yes, the kids are growing like weeds, but they bring me the greatest joy.
Love, Molly
