When Mr. … Continue reading Spring Motorcycle Ride

Lessons Learned from Loving a Biker

In the 3 years that Mr. Cozy Cottage and I have been together, I have learned a lot about loving a biker. Now, men themselves are hard to handle, but bikers are truly a different breed.

As Spring draws near, the temps are slowly rising, green grass is making an appearance, and the sky is turning a brighter shade of blue as opposed to the grayer hue in Winter.

Whew! Holy moly! Is anyone else still exhausted from Christmas and New Year celebrations? I'm just getting life back to normal, though the poor house is still a wreck and I haven't even started to take down our decorations.

The Best Gluten-Free, No-Chill Sugar Cookies

At the end of August this year, Mr. Cozy Cottage was sort of diagnosed with Celiac disease. I say sort of because the markers for the blood test didn't show up because I had already had him on a gluten-free diet for 6 months. Our wonderful doctor told us that if the diet was working … Continue reading The Best Gluten-Free, No-Chill Sugar Cookies
