Guest Post| The Genesis of my blog – by Nate Johnson

Letters. Those things in the mailbox that aren't thrown in the trash right away. When somebody sits down and put their thoughts down on a piece of paper and ship it off with a forty-nine cent stamp.

People can use 140 characters or show breakfast with a dozen hashtags and filters. Writing letters seems to be a lost art. They take time and thoughtfulness.

There is nothing worse then waking up with no money and no food in the house. This cinnamon cookie recipe was created from the bare basics in my cupboard and decorated with  a lemon drizzle and a little honey as it was what was in my kitchen.
