Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
