The “F” Word

To all you lovers of things coconut sugary, kombucha-ish and so on . . . not to mention fruitcake! MMMmmmmm It’s not to late to make one for next year; just be sure to anoint it liberally and regularly with brandy or the like . . . ๐Ÿ˜‰ ~ Linne

Just when you thought it was safe to open up your home to visitors once again, now that the tinsel dust and artificial pine scent has settled, Iโ€™ve come to ruin your day.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year ๐Ÿ™‚ full of more delightful treats! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Narf7 of http://theroadtoserendipity.wordpress.com can lilely tell you anything you want to know about any of these. She’s amazing!

      This fruitcake sounds so healthy (except for my recommended infusions of brandy) ๐Ÿ˜‰
