Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I wanted to try to make something I haven’t made before – shortbread. Shortbread is a firm favorite of my mother and brother. I only really remember my family making it from scratch one time in my life, and I didn’t really remember what it entailed. I just remembered it was a crisp and wonderfully buttery treat.

Good Morning and Happy Monday! Today’s festive recipe will hopefully make the holiday baking bug start to bloom. That’s right, we’re making peanut blossoms today. These cookies are one of the few Christmas cookie staples my family make each year. The first dozen of peanut blossoms never lasted long because everyone wanted a cookie right out of the oven. The chocolate was perfectly melted over a wonderfully warm peanut butter cookie. What’s better than that?

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This week I thought I would revisit a recipe that truly lives up to its name – Sassy Cinnamon Muffins.

One day I wanted to make these muffins by myself. I gathered all the ingredients, leveled out my measurements and put those muffins in the oven. Much to my surprise, they did not rise to the occasion.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to take a step back this week and just make some cookies. These are good for those cosy days that you really want to take some time out and make a little something sweet. From browning the butter to chopping up the chocolate, it’s all about slowing down. These have the warm kind of sweetness that caramel has from the browned butter.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This was the first time in my life buying bananas for the purpose of strictly making banana bread. Don’t get me wrong, this recipe deserves to be made that sort of intention first and foremost – it just hasn’t happened that way for me until now.

Good Morning and Happy November! It’s crazy to me how fast this year is going. I was running errands this weekend and was greeted with festive cheer. Not that I should be surprised since we are past Halloween, but I am not personally ready to completely give up fall yet.

Happy Sunday! It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Halloween! The leaves are crunchy, the cinnamon is abundant, and the air is cool and crisp. What more could you want? Every holiday can easily be adorned with your regular ol’ butter cutout cookies. However, I wanted to try something a little different and add a bit of fall into these cookies.

Good Morning! I have a quick and easy recipe for you this morning. From start to finish this crisp takes about 35 minutes. It was something my mother made on a whim in the fall and winter time. My family sought after the topping most of all for its cinnamony goodness.
