I’m not normally a fan of sugar cookies, but I made these by request for a family member, and I found that they really grew on me. The flavor is subtle, and the texture is incredibly delicate. Despite the delicious, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth feel of these cookies, they’re plenty durable and will hold up to clumsy

Christmas cookies are a huge part of this time of year for me. I’ve always been a big baker around the holidays thanks to the influence of my Nana and my mom, but now that I’m on my own, I’ve found more freedom to experiment with different recipes. We always had our staples of anisettes

I’ve had my sourdough starter for a couple of months now, and I’m looking for a change from our delicious banana bread (mostly because I’m out of bananas this time around, and Hubby wants his morning slice of homemade bread). I’m sure my bread machine is feeling a little left out since we started making

I love ginger, and I love cookies, but one of the banes of my baking existence for years has been gingerbread. I’ve never had much luck making the buildable kind, and when I do, I’m never satisfied with the texture. This year, after trying some soft ginger cookies, I was inspired to give it another

It’s an old recipe on this blog, but it never fails to please the crowds. Originally, I’d planned to do a kind of Snickers bark with chocolate and caramel
