Nan Kelley’s Ginger Cookies “My mother-in-law, Patricia, is the Christmas cookie queen, so my husband, Charlie, grew up having the “best of the best” cookies during the holidays. This is one of his favorites, which she still makes today, and now it’s a yearly tradition at our house. Sugar and spice and everything nice — no truer words have ever been spoken for this little Christmas treat.” Ingredients : 3/4 cup shortening 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup molasses (Miss Pat uses Grandma’s Original) 1 egg slightly beaten 2 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves 3/4 teaspoon ginger Sugar (for rolling) Directions : In a large bowl, use a mixer to cream shortening and sugar. Blend in molasses and beaten egg. Sift flour in a small bowl and add baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Mix well. Add the flour mixture to the shortening and molasses mixture and blend well. Chill dough in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes. Remove dough and roll into small balls. Roll each ball in sugar and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

It was 29 years ago today that Paycheck walked into the North High Lounge in Hillsboro, Ohio. The bar was less than 20 miles from his hometown of Greenfield, and the country singer was planning on heading back home to his childhood stomping grounds to visit his mother for the holidays.
Nobody expected the Decemberists, the theatrically-minded indie-folk band from Portland, Oregon, to ever hit Number One on the Billboard album chart. So what did they do after their sixth LP, 2011’s The King Is Dead , made it all the way to the top? They took four years to release its follow-up, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World (due January 20th). Not that they sat around drinking artisanal lattes: Although lead singer Colin Meloy has yet to get his stage musical off the ground, he did publish a trilogy of YA fantasy novels: Wildwood (which hit the New York Times bestseller lists), Under Wildwood and Wildwood Imperium , all illustrated by his wife, Carson Ellis. “There are a lot of people who know me just for the books, which is strange to me, and then discover the band later,” Meloy told us on the phone from his home in Oregon.
