It's Showtime! What To Do and What Not To Do

The sign is up and you are ready to show your home off! In any market, a hot one or not, you need to have your house prepared to show as soon as you are live! What should you do and not do for a showing?

Upgrades and Repairs:

If your home has undergone some major changes since you purchased your home, you may want to list these out. Many people will never even look at these but if they are interested they will. Upgrading your brass knobs on your kitchen is not a big deal to the buyer,but a new furnace, hot water heater or brand new roof is. Any transferable warranty should also be noted.

The list doesn't have to be long as I've stated, most people will not even notice it unless they do and if they do, they are not going to read a long list. A simple record is fine. If a professional was called in to do work, show receipts.

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.
