We're Moving Dolly is Cooking to Hibiscus House!


I wanted to let you all know that the cooking website, the kitchen of Hibiscus House is going to be published right here.  The future recipes that is.  The older recipes, some maybe I'm not sure.  

This will be a good move.  It will make it easier to maintain here in one place.  I appreciate all of you friends that follow there and welcome you here!

A cookbook may be in my future and will keep you updated.  I will leave Dolly is Cooking up for 2 weeks more if you are interested in paying another visit there.  After that it will become a private website. 

I appreciate all of you and apologize for any inconvenience but this will be for the best.
