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,

As someone who grew up in an Italian household eating copious amounts of pasta and baking cookies every other day of the week, I never really had much of an interest in dieting. I was vegetarian for a while, but I was also an extremely competitive and active runner at the time, and I couldn’t

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…).

My love for lemon poppyseed pastries has been going strong since I was a little girl, and now that I’m

If you’re like me, you probably like doughnuts but don’t like to think about the calories. A lot of those come from frying the dough. Well, with this, we skip the frying and bake it instead! From there, you can glaze them (like I did), fill them (with a piping tip and your favorite pudding

Here’s a simple recipe for a simple cookie that’s a classic and a favorite to many, including my Poppa, who always played the lovable role of the Sneaky Cookie Stealer in my childhood memory reel. This recipe is one I whipped up for him, after he bashfully requested I make him some Pillsbury instant oatmeal cookies —
