By Tab Byrum

It’s never too early to start planning ahead for the next holiday and Easter will be here before we know it. I love to bake but don’t do much of it anymore with the main reasons being time and I’ll eat it, but that doesn’t stop me from looking at all the beautiful baking accessories and tools available to create beautiful cakes and make holidays more fun. Williams Sonoma has some amazing Nordicware pans to create beautiful Bunny cakes as well Carrot Cakes and of course pancake molds for the perfect Easter morning breakfast. Join me today for a look at what’s available and think about baking something extra special for your family’s Easter celebration this year. Enjoy!!!

And, whatever sky’s above me,
Here’s a heart for every fate.

If you’re not a baker or even much of a cook remember there are lots of beautiful and tasty options you can buy.

WS does allow you to order the entire meal but I’m always amazed by the beautiful and tasty dessert options they offer.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 ~ Taking A Dip

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!!!
