Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

The Only Christmas Cookie Recipe You Will Ever Need

Last Christmas, we visited my family's farm in Rogersville, Tennessee and stayed at the Hale Springs Inn. What a beautiful place filled with so much history! I'm not going to veer too far off course here though, we are talking about cookies! Well, My Aunt Sallie had made these cookies for our celebration and I fell in love. They are simple to make and though take like a regular butter cookie when you first bite into it, after you let it simmer and melt into your mouth, you want more. I would suggest these to anyone who is trying to watch their weight because you can't just eat one. 



What You Will Need:

A Cookie Press
Sheet Pans

Ingredients:
1 Cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Egg
1 Tsp. Vanilla
3 Cups Self Rising Flour
Pinch of Salt

Preheat Your Oven to 350 Degrees.

Mix First Four Ingredients
Add flour, one cup at a time. You will need to mix by hand the last cup. 
Roll onto a cylinder and dive into three sections.
Press into Cookie Press. 
You should be able to get at least nine cookies on a small cookie sheet. They don't rise that much.

Bake about 8 minutes. 10-12 minutes the edges with brown.
You will want to let them cool but they are amazing fresh out of the oven.
