Strawberry Pie

It is such a beautiful day outside, and the weather is supposed to stay like this for a while.  I love spring time.  It makes me feel like we will be at the beach in no time at all- which of course is a wonderful and horrifying thought all at the same time.  Everything is […]

Butter Streusel Coffee Cake

We have spent the most wonderful couple of days up in the mountains.  We have been hiking, relaxing by the fire, watching movies and eating lots and lots.  Growing up, my mother would always serve Sara Lee’s Butter Streusel Coffee Cake as a side for breakfast when we had a house party up here.  She […]

St. Patrick’s Day Cookies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  We had a debate this morning at work whether or not you had to be Irish to participate in St. Patrick’s day.  Clearly, only the people who were not wearing green thought that their non Irish lineage made them exempt which was ignored completely.  And, despite the rain and cold and […]

We are on day 6 with the 5 kids, and I can’t believe how smoothly it is going.  Don’t get me wrong, I am exhausted, but so far, they are all alive, do not seem sleep deprived or malnourished and in general are pretty happy.  I could totally handle this every day- no, no I […]

Poofy German Pancake

One of the easiest and best breakfasts is to make a German pancake.  First they are delicious, second they poof which is fun to watch at any age, but especially for kids (I am talking really poofy if you are lucky), and third you can serve it with anything- fruit, syrup, powdered sugar, nutella etc.  […]

Happy Valentine’s Day Fudge

For some reason this year, I don’t feel like Valentine’s Day has been hyped or celebrated (at least in my family) at all.  Maybe it is because of yet another fake snow storm that closed schools and bridges Wednesday and Thursday.  Maybe it is because Corby’s birthday is this weekend, and I am focused more […]

I feel very fortunate to be able to eat wheat or flour or whatever it is that causes people Celiac disease, and  I have not had much experience with eating or cooking gluten free.  However, after spending some time with friends who suffer from Celiac disease, I thought I should add some gluten free recipes […]

As this is a baking blog, I am not sure if I have mentioned my preferences in alcohol.  I like beer.  Light beer.  Ultra light beer.  That’s about it.  I will occasionally drink red wine and perhaps a glass of champagne, but I have never enjoyed liquor.  I, of course, tried shots of liquor in […]
