A quick post.........with something yummy at the end!

I did back up my template and my posts but have yet to figure out how to get the data from XML format to PDF so I can print it out.  There are over 6,000 pages!  It will be a slow process.
Here's what I did on Blogger:
I went to DESIGN then TEMPLATE and clicked on BACKUP/RESTORE in the upper right corner and clicked on DOWNLOAD FULL TEMPLATE
Be sure and write down where your file is being downloaded to on your computer.  This will download an XML file of your template.
Next, I went to SETTINGS and then OTHER and then IMPORT AND BACKUP and then BACKUP CONTENT.
This will backup your entire blog!  From the beginning!  At least mine it did or maybe it was just because I had never done it before.....not sure.  This takes awhile so don't start it if you need to use your computer.  I started it and came back later.
There is a way to transfer your XML document into a regular word file which I also did but it is still in XML so there are programs you can download to change an XML file into a PDF but that's as far as I got today! Whew!  I will keep you informed.  Most of my info I got from Google and Ehow.
As for something a little more enjoyable............

Muskotsnittar (Nutmeg Slices)

These nutmeg slice cookies appeal to everyone. Whether you are a lover of Biscoff cookies in general or Disney's Frozen and are hoping to taste something authentically Swedish, these muskotsnittar cookies fit the bill for any type of fandom. The buttery brown-sugar batter is packed with warming spices, but don't let that fool you into thinking these are holiday-only cookies. These bite-size treats ought to be made year-round. Store leftovers in the freezer, and enjoy them cold with your cup ...

This description was taken from the blog Pop Sugar
where you can find the recipe.  I've never had Biscoff cookies and I haven't seen Frozen but these cookies are delicious!  A few tips....
I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and tried "rolling" but that did not work for me so I just pressed them out on my parchment paper covered cookie sheets with my hands and that worked fine.  This is definitely going in my vault of  treasured recipes!  Enjoy!  Let me know if you make will not regret it one bit!
Happy Trails!


  1. The cookies look delicious. I can't prounounce the name, but if they taste good, does it matter? lol. Great information on blog back up. I hope it all worked well for you.

  2. These definitely have a welcome home/the comfort of the holidays vibe. Try Googling your file issue. Maybe something will come up.

  3. Good for you backing up your website. It's a habit that I started doing in 2003, which is when I started acting blogging one one of my websites. That being said, on Threadlover, a few weeks back I remember there were a few times that I did NOT back up my posts. I tend to do it after every posting. Of course, that was the time when I accidentally deleted two posts and since the last backup was prior to writing those posts, that information was gone.

    Those cookies look wonderful.

  4. So glad you figured the back up process! I should do it...maybe someday. Your sweet things look great! :)

  5. mmm those biscuits look yummy, I bet they smell delicious too
