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).

One of my friend-Skylers (the local one) mentioned the idea of banana pumpkin bread to me, and I had to say, I was intrigued. I enjoyed banana bread and I happened to have a surplus of pumpkin puree in the cupboard due to a sale at the local grocery store. 3 for 1. Great deal,

When I was a little girl, we used to have big family Christmases with lots of people, tons of food, and enough cookies to feed all of Santa’s elves. While there are a few baked goods we continued to make after the Christmas get-togethers stopped, but these weren’t one of them, for some reason. When

This is another recipe we found in Nana’s stash of recipe cards. According to Poppa, it came from his sister, Dorothy, who used to make it for him all the time and later passed the recipe on to Nana. I added a couple of spices to it to make the dough a little more interesting,

I’ve been doing a lot of baking lately. As danger goes, baking is a pretty safe hobby — unless we’re talking about your waistline. In an effort to not gain a million pounds in a couple of months, I’ve started taking steps toward making healthier baked goods (sometimes; nothing can curb my cupcake experimentation, though…).

The days surrounding Independence Day (for any country) are always a good time to do some delving into your nation’s history. For me, as an American, I’ve done my fair share of reading on periods of war from the 1700s through to current times. A period that holds a lot of personal interest for me
