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.

Banana bread is one of my favorite treats. It’s just cakey enough to make my body think I’m giving it a real dessert, but it’s ever so slightly healthier for you. It’s high in fiber and a classic baked good in any American kitchen. In the past, we’ve had banana pumpkin bread, which had a

For my choir’s winter concert, we had to bring baked goods for our audience to enjoy during intermission and after the concert. Each of us was tasked with bringing a dozen cookies. For those who didn’t have time to make something to bring and didn’t want to just go out and buy something from the

Today’s cookies are a trial for a classic Italian cookie cake that I will be making later this month for our choir’s Christmas concert. These were made as a Thanksgiving dessert designed for everyone to enjoy, including my father-in-law who isn’t much a fan of sweets. Instead of making a mince pie or something else

I’ve been going through the Harry Potter book series lately, and, on several occasions, pasties are mentioned. I had no idea what a pasty was, so I looked it up one day, after hearing about pumpkin pasties for the second or third time. They’re hand pies, which I┬áhad heard of before, but which I had

This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates.
