On my recent vacation, I participated in 3 days of community sewing.  As a result, there was a need for baked goods every day.  I made a Walnut Apple Cake, Fresh Pear Cake and Zucchini Bread.  I was in baking heaven!  It is wonderful to have the time and space to simply bake. It was even… MORE

My granddaughter and I will have a whole day together on Easter Saturday.  She asked if she could invite her best friend over, and could we bake tie dyed cupcakes!  I love that at 10 years old she wants to spend an afternoon baking with her grandma, and I love that she want to… MORE

I grew up with a pear tree in the yard, so I learned early how to make pear cobblers and pear crisps, but I had forgotten the delight of a pear pie until recently. Our local market was offering clearance priced perfectly ripe pears.  Their perfection would be gone tomorrow, but that day they… MORE

It's getting harder and harder to keep up with the college bound kids in our family.  I have a niece who loves to bake, and I had 12 dozen holiday cookies to bake for the church Cookie Walk, so I called her.  We made a date for a "Cookie Baking Day." The plan was thumbprint… MORE

It was 1980, I bought a pie pumpkin and didn't have a clue what to do with it.  So I called my sister.  We got together and learned to bake a pumpkin pie together.  We have been baking pumpkin pies together for 30 years.  I love to celebrate baking.  I love the joy and conversation in the… MORE

Salt Water Taffy! My last 3 attempts failed humerously and miserably all at the same time. But, I'm not done trying, just resting on the idea for another year or so!
