My friend Sheena is one of my favorite people.  We became friends through my sister.  She is the best friend of my sister’s sister-in-law (how’s that for a mouthful?) and when my sister met her, she called me and said “You need to become friends with this girl Sheena who I just met.  She is… Continue reading Sheena’s Chewy Molasses Cookies
