It’s in the air . . . Can you feel it? I sure can!
You know what I mean. It’s that wonderful time of year when smiles are broader, laughter and kindness seem to take the place of frowns and everyday problems.

Oh Valentine’s Day. How do I feel about thee?
I’ll explain, but before I do, some of you might want to grip a chair or chew on a pencil.
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.
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.
Christmas . . . that magic blanket that wraps itself about us. That something so intangible that it’s like a fragrance!
Most of you probably think I’ve disappeared from recipe earth, but I’ve put on my apron and I’m not taking it off until January! (well maybe to shower)
I’m ready to heat up my kitchen and begin my holiday baking. I’ve stocked up on sugar, butter and flour for weeks now. I’ve also ramped up runs on the treadmill in anticipation of calories.
Hello fall . . . I adore you.
Please wrap your arms around us and stay a long while,
Drop your gorgeous leaves and let us play in the piles.
Gift us with your colors and humble us with your chill,
Grace us with your calm, your quiet, that peace that we feel.
Hello fall . . . I adore you.
Do you need something scrumptious, addictive and can’t put down darn good?
Yesterday . . . I was following my husband, who was driving a huge combine. I trailed behind hauling the long and heavy header.
Today . . . I made pie.
I much prefer making pie to hauling combine headers!
I’d like to give you a piece of this pie, but it’s gone, gone, so gone.
Someone one said . . .
“Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.”
Flags are flying high! We are all feeling very thankful for the freedoms and liberties we enjoy in this great country. Our love and thanks are with those who fought to get us there and for those still fighting to keep us there!
The sun is shining today, and I should be outside washing my very dirty windows! Instead, I find myself attaching camera to desktop to share Strawberry Blueberry Cheesecake pictures with you. This no bake cheesecake is perfect, because it’s not too sweet. The crust isn’t your typical graham cracker crust, and the cheesecake mixture isn’t your typical cool whip center.
Oh the internet . . . it’s a blessing . . . it’s a curse!
Have you ever found yourself thinking; I’ll just look at Pinterest for a minute or two, before I vacuum or dust? Two hours later, you realize that it’s two hours later!
One of those pictures took me to Saveur the other day, where I came across this yummy recipe for Hummingbird Cake.
Hi . . . I'm Jonna.
