There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ~ Jane Austen Hello dear friends and welcome to No PlaceLike Home!
We had another snow storm the other day so I made some 'storm cookies.' These being SpiderCookies. Some folks may call them chocolate macaroons but they're not as chewy as a macaroon. You may check out my recipe here.
We just finished painting our kitchen-dining rooms on the weekend. It's really good to have that job done. Got some spring cleaning done along with it.
Last Friday as I mentioned earlier in my post, we had another snow storm and I was dreaming about summertime. I set out a tea in pink using my summery teacups, pink teapot, and pink tulips. We munched on spider cookies too. More snow is on the way including blizzard warnings. My imagination helps to whisk me away from it all. You may check out that post here.
Now on to my features. You all share so many wonderful ideas and recipes each week. You really are a talented group of ladies and I am grateful for your participation.

Lord, this humble house we'd keep Sweet with play and calm with sleep. Help us so that we may give Beauty to the lives we live. Let Thy love and let Thy grace Shine upon our dwelling place. - Edgar A. Guest
Today we will live in the moment unless it's unpleasant in which case we will eat a cookie. ~ Cookie Monster Happy Weekend sweet friends! After the snow storm we had yesterday, which blanketed us with more centimetres of the white stuff, it is bright and beautiful but quite cold outside. I am so thankful that Hubby arrived home from work before it got really treacherous out there! Yesterday I promised you my recipe for Spider Cookies. I would imagine most of you have made these or grown up eating them. My children grew up on them and they still love them as does my hubby. Hubby always likes to have a cookie with his tea.
2 cups sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/2 cup butter/margarine 7 TBSP cocoa powder dash of salt 1/2 tsp vanilla 3 cups oatmeal 1 cup flaked coconut In a saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, cocoa, and salt. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently.
When it has reached a rolling boil, lower heat and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and mix in the vanilla, oatmeal, and coconut.
Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Be sure to work quickly. Let cool. Store in an air tight container. Yield about three to four dozen. These cookies freeze well too.
Quick and easy. Perfect cookies to make during a snow storm. Thanks for your visit and enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone! Sharing from my heart ~ Sandi

I live a happy life in Green Gables country with my sweet hubby who is a retired pastor. We have three wonderful sons and five darling grandchildren. I love being a home maker and I thrive on bringing beauty and comfort into my home for my family and friends to enjoy. Life is made even richer by my faith in God who has taught me, "The joy of the Lord is my strength." I am so happy you have stopped by and I welcome you through my yellow door.

"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't become ugly, except to people who don't understand. "~ The Velveteen Rabbit
