Crispy & Delicious
My husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this week. I am stunned―and amazed—that I have done anything for twenty-five years. I knew from the moment I met Al that we would be together forever, but I didn’t know that forever would last so long and keep going strong. You see, I’d started to believe I would always be unlucky in love. Not a great attitude to have while beginning a new marriage. I even became superstitious. If Al and I did this quietly, without any fanfare or notice, then maybe, just maybe this time things would work out. So, one rainy Saturday morning in Southfield, Michigan, we made our way to the office of the Justice of the Peace. With only four friends there as witnesses, we took our vows and were married. That was the happiest moment of my life, the one that spawned more happiness. The birth of our son, the adoption of our daughter, the move to our new home and life in New Hampshire, and of course today. I am so happy and so very proud. Al is by my side always. His strength, love, and optimism are infused in everything we do. I look forward to twenty-five more years of the sweet life with him.
I made these Oatmeal Cookies with Butterscotch and Cranberries as part of our celebratory meal. The butterscotch adds an extra bit of sweetness to the overall cookie, while the cranberry is a bit tart and soft. They all add together to form a light dessert. Enjoy them with a bit of lemon sorbet and a hot cup of espresso. Enjoy the sweet life with the one you love.
I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen, gathering flavors, soon.
