My Favorite Transgender Medicare Cookie #FridayRecommends

Friday RecommendsYes, it’s Friday!

Carolyn van Poppel visited yesterday, and so I visited her blog, Pastimes, Passions, and Paraphernalia. It’s super cool! Her favorite kitchen gadget is the apple peeler-corer-slicer, such as the one I lost half my thumbnail to. To each his own!

The Unconventional Librarian, who champions diversity in books, recommends this children’s book, I Am Jazz, A Book For Transgendered Children. We’ve come a long way from all kids’ books being about middle-class, unchallenged white children.

My pal Jane (50 years? Seriously? We’ve been friends for 50 years???) sent me this link to Motley Fool’s article on Medicare benefits. Thanks, Jane! I’ll need this in twenty years, when I turn 65. ~ducks to avoid lightning bolt~

Dan Antion, who will never steer you wrong, suggested I look at his friend Cheryl Pennington’s blog, specifically these cookie recipes. OH, MAN, these sound good!!!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What’s your main character’s favorite cookie. Or, in the case of characters who no longer eat, what WAS her favorite cookie, Jane?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I’d like them even more, if she’d come over to my house and make them for me. heh Or, of course, if we were having a drink and I got some with a Margarita.

        She’s pretty reliable behind the bar, but I don’t think she makes house calls.

    Yes, dear friend. FIFTY YARONS!

    Callie liked scottish shortbread as a bairn. Someone in the kitchen knew how to really bake.

      Mmm, shortbread sounds good! I bet she misses that. Or — I forget — CAN she eat and taste but not take nourishment from non-blood?

        Although her non-blood intake of choice seems to be Kentucky bourbon, Callie can indeed taste and partake of regular food, just not too much at one time. After all, it’s not exactly what she craves anymore.
