A Few Of My Favorite Things Part The Last (Probably), And Why I Love Molly

OK, folks, we're getting down to the wire here if you're still ordering holiday gifts, so here's something that I can highly recommend for those hard-to-shop-for recipients on your list: Penzey's Spices.

It's time to toss that ten-year-old tarragon, ditch the decrepit dill, and order some fresh, flavorful, aromatic spices from this fantastic (Wisconsin-based - yay!) vendor. If there's a baker on your gift list, why not order them a baker's box and replenish what they've depleted making this year's holiday treats? Someone love a good curry? Penzey's has them covered.

All the gift boxes come well-packed, surrounded with bay leaves and whole nutmegs which you can actually use. Penzey's often includes samples, and their catalogs have great recipes. They're sending $9 gift cards with certain orders placed before December 21st!

Penzey's gift boxes make great wedding presents, too!

Why I Love My Molly

As you saw on yesterday's entry, Molly is a rather... "unique" dog.

She has had three DNA tests, all of them inconclusive.

We think she's part wolverine.

If you never blow up another pic on my blog, blow up this one!

Emma adopted Molly from the Humane Association. From now on, we would probably think twice about letting a young Doberman choose her own pet. (Just kidding!)

We're not entirely sure that the glow in Molly's eyes is actually from the camera flash, or some inner demonic possession.

I'll tell you more about Molly in my next entry. (Please note: Molly is NOT vicious! She is only playing in all these pictures. I swear.)

It's hard to go wrong with Penzeys! Absolutely the freshest, most aromatic spices I've ever used.

Molly really does do a good "demon dog" impression, doesn't she? LOL The picture of her at the top of the stairs is especially cute.
