Dar has come up with a wonderful new confection: cake pops! Rolled in chocolate! And they're gluten free. I know that several of you wanted her recipes for cookies, but she's just been crazy busy and hasn't had time to transcribe them. She reworks them a lot until she gets them just right, so the recipes have been evolving, too. But these? These are perfection.
( Rocky is dexterous. And icicles can get pretty big. )
It's been insane around here for the past three days. High winds from the north with wind chills of -30C/-22F, snow squalls, flash freezing. The drifts have been crazy. This one stands between the house and the mill. No one can pull into the parking lot because of the deep snow. We are all so ready for this to go away.

Our collective had the first of four open houses at the mill today. We had a good turnout; there were tours of the mill and people were buying at the gift shop. The weather turned very cold, but almost everyone still braved it to take a tour of the grounds and visit with the alpacas.
