Our Advent(cheer) Day 2 Tequila Flats and Day 1 Video

Welcome to Day 2 of our Advent(cheer)! As I said before, God gave me this idea to do an act of kindness every day for the month of December leading up to Christmas. We will probably continue through the 12 Days of Christmas, which ends January 5, which is Epiphany. Want to know more about the 12 Days of Christmas? Check here for the great book my dear friend (the one moving to NC :( next summer) and I wrote.

 Today we took homemade cookies and fudge to our friends at Tijuana Flats, where we eat lunch almost every Tuesday. (Tuesday is "Taco Tuesday" where you get two tacos, chips and a drink for $5.49. They're yummy and filling and it doesn't break the bank!)


The cookies we made are the delicious recipe I found on She featured them several years ago on her Christmas blog. But they actually came from  They are delicious, easy to make, and the cookies she makes are absolutely the most fun I have ever seen. Her royal icing is perfection, and she shows how to make "flood" icing that works exactly like she says it will. It is a great website for the cookie baker in anyone.

The fudge we made is the kind made from marshmallow fluff, just the recipe off the back of the fluff container. I have made pounds and pounds of fudge in my lifetime and that recipe has never failed. I suppose that it why it is called, "Never Fail Fudge." We added walnuts to some, but left some plain. It makes 5 pounds(!) so there is plenty to share! (The picture is only about half of what we made. I had already shared some yesterday at Vinceramos, and my kids have been munching on it all day!)

yummy fudge

I also made a card to put with it.

It says:


You've been Blessed!

As we anticipate the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ-

who gave His all for us- we give you this token of His love and pray that

you might know Him in a very real and presonal way this Advent Season.
