Come for Tea... and Sunshine Brownies...



 Mom's wedding china...  by Syracuse...  Isn't it sweet?
































I have been obsessed with Orange this month!  I have fallen in love with a Diet Orange made by Pepsi...  on ice (it's not too good in the can)...  and Orange Spiced Iced Tea...  and hot if I catch the AC on high..

Then I made the famed Orange Cranberry Coffee Cake, which was delicious.  Today's new treat:  Paula Deen's Orange Brownies, which I am naming Sunshine Brownies....

Oh, my!
