The 5 Cup Coffee Maker


I hope you guys are having a good morning. (I don't want to complain but I'm ever so slightly annoyed)

Who knew it was SO hard to purchase a 5 cup coffee maker!!!! I had one caught it on sale at Walmart at the beginning of the month. (Which was a God send because they are not so easy to find. I had been looking for over a year!) Some little person (she whom shall not be named...The Lil Chef) poured her already made tea (agave, honey, lemon juice, and ACV already in it) through it to heat it up the other morning (but needless to say that caused some problems.) I was able to "clean" it but as I continued to run the water through it there were small black particles in it (I ran the water through it aprox. 10 times. & with the vinegar)
I'm still within my 90 days so I take it back to EXCHANGE it. Of course there are NONE on the shelf. The previous night I put one in my online cart, just in case. I was given a refund and I started to leave but I had an idea; I decided to order the same coffee maker online while I was still in the store. Low and behold it says the coffee maker was ready for pick up that day (which was yesterday), I let customer service know they weren't too much help, I went to the pick up area. The young lady in the pick up dept. went above and beyond and I was very grateful...BUT no, there were none in the store despite what the computer said. I wake up this  morning to a cancellation from walmart for my coffee maker. What did I do? I ordered another online and scheduled to pick it up from another near by Walmart. The status says "Processing" just like the other, says it'll be available for pick up "today" just like the other. Now, we wait!.....
(The caveat... I'm not trying to pay a billion $ for a tiny machine, this one is/was $8.74, $9.33 w/tax. I'm happy with that price!)

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
