This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Snickerdoodles are one of hubby’s favorite cookies. I’ve made him a snickerdoodle mug cake and a few trial batches of cookies, but nothing has ever really wowed him before.

As promised, I have prepared, for your viewing and baking pleasure, a mid-winter pick-me-up of one of my favorite summertime flavor combinations: Lemon and blueberry. Now, as I told my mom while making these, I could eat lemon blueberry anything for days. It’s the perfect balance of tart and sweet, just like cranberry orange bread (which I
