If you’re not a baker or even much of a cook remember there are lots of beautiful and tasty options you can buy. If you order by today from Williams-Sonoma that gives you enough time to receive your items by Thanksgiving, but there are only 4 days left to order and receive them by the 23rd. WS does allow you to order the entire meal but I’m always amazed by the beautiful and tasty dessert options they offer. Join me today for a look at pies, cakes, bars, and cookies that you can order and impress even the most finicky foodies in your life. Enjoy!!!

This week as we wind up our look at Strawberries in the month of May we are going to finish up with recipes, one of my favorite combos is strawberries and chocolate so a strawberry cookie recipe with chocolate chips was a natural yes for me. I found the recipe at Sally’s Baking Addiction and it’s great!! The cookie recipe is a cake mix based recipe which automatically means it’s going to be moist, I whipped these up on a Sunday morning to see what we thought, they are moist, easy to make and very flavorful and I love the hit of chocolate from the chocolate chips. Here are¬†some pics I took using my iPhone and recipe. Enjoy!!!

Chocolate DippingXmas 2015 - 19

Today is Cover Anything In Chocolate Day, so I decided to do just that. I’m going to show you and hopefully give you some ideas on things that we eat every day that can be made extra special for the holidays by dipping them in chocolate. I promise that they are all pretty simple to do and quick, I created all these confections at home in my own kitchen. I’ve used both milk chocolate and white chocolate, I love dark chocolate but didn’t use any for this experiment, but you definitely could if you like the dark stuff. So, pull up a chair and pour yourself a glass of your favorite drink and start thinking of some of your favorite things that might be made just a little tastier with chocolate, Enjoy!!!

Today we are going to take a look at some of the images of December, some holiday and some not, so start making those lists and checking them twice and Enjoy!!!

Celebrating National Sugar Cookie Day

July 9, 2015

July 9th is National Sugar cookie day and I couldn’t be happier, I love sugar cookies, they don’t even have to be decorated, growing up we had sugar cookies a lot and they were baked and sprinkled with just plain sugar. Eventually mom and I got into decorating cookies and even did some cookie bouquets which was a lot of fun. Sugar cookie dough is a very basic dough of sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and either baking powder or baking soda, after that you can be as elaborate or as simple as you want with the icing and decorations.
