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

Back to the old books we go, this time for a homemade bread recipe called “water bread.” It gets its name from the fact that it’s made with — you guessed it — water. If you’re easily amused like I am, this recipe is also a great opportunity for a time-lapse video or photo set

This past weekend, this Miss became a Missus! To celebrate, I’m bringing you some delicious, way too easy to make, rich chocolate cake — in a mug! Don’t let the idea of eggy, dry mug cakes deter you. This mug cake is rich, moist, and doesn’t use egg! It’s an awesome dessert to make when

That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! 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. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

One of my friends came over to help me bake, and he brought up the idea of using aquafaba in something “for science.” It was an experiment and it went… pretty well. Our meringue ended up a little overworked and not super presentable, but everything else about the pie looked fantastic. This recipe is one

There’s a local antique shop in town that has a variety of items, from world war relics and period clothing to old dolls and kitchenwares. They also occasionally have some incredible finds, such as newspapers from the day of the first moonwalk or the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, or 105 year-old home medical and

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods). Fortunately for everyone involved, these

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends
