As one year ends and another begins, I want to thank you for sharing a little part of my life. This crazy baking blog is a happy space for me and getting to know you through comments and emails brightens my days. I appreciate the ideas you share, your subtle nudges for help and also those of you who just silently lurk behind the scenes. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives, in and out of my kitchen.
I’m excited for a fresh new year and the opportunity to put stacks of saved recipes to the test. Time always seems limited, but hopefully the occasional knock at your door will still be welcome.

My wish for each of you in 2016, is peace of mind and a happy heart!

I thought it would be fun for you to see which 10 recipes were the most popular for 2015.

I made something quite delicious today. It was a battle . . . and I lost. My head was telling me “NO” . . . don’t you do it. That little monkey on my shoulder won! These flaky little Apple Pies are mini’s, so you can eat one or two. You will need to give […]
