On the 5th Day of Christmas… Cook up a Storm   For the past 18 years I have been making Mammoth’s famous Christmas Festive Cake.

December 13, 2016

This is a Cherokee legend of on old man teaching his grandson about life, and the two wolves that reside within all of us. Many of you may have heard of this Native American legend. I find it very powerful in its simplicity. I often refer back to it when I feel my thoughts are out of balance or I just need a simple reminder of where to direct my focus.
