Baking, outside of my comfort zone

This morning we’re off to A Tuba Christmas in downtown Dallas. Our son is participating this year. Anyhoo, back to my baking issue. I’ve got family members with food allergies. I’m sure I am not alone. On Christmas Eve, we will be having brunch with my Sister-in-Love and her family. Michelle and her family have …

Cake in a Jar

The idea & post for cake in a jar is courtesy of a question on my Facebook page. Making teacher or co-worker gifts that will impress (not to mention survive the trip to school/work) isn’t always easy. Cake~ baked in a canning jar fits the bill perfectly. Here’s what to do….. Cake mix…make your own …

Frugally yours, for the Holidays.

An over-sized, soft, chewy Oreo cookie…and a foot rub, but the foot rub is totally optional. 😉 It does not taste exactly like a Oreo, but it’s super good. I decided to make the cookies soft and chewy instead of crisp. …

Where I went…Wednesday

A lot of people post “What I wore, Wednesday” or “What I ate, Wednesday”.  I’m going to tell you where I went, via the interwebs over the last week.   My bloggy friend Andrea wrote a beautiful tribute post and posted a caramelized onion recipe for friend she recently lost.   I made homemade laundry …

Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake

I’ve got all these great recipes for cakes and cookies and breads.   All these great tasting recipes made with all-purpose flour.  I’ve wanted to convert them, but conversion can be scary.   Will it taste the same?  Will it taste similar?  Will it be good or blah? I’ve had more than a few yucky conversion attempts.  …
