Ready, Set, Bake!

Have you started training for your Christmas Baking Marathon?  (Don't worry, I haven't either.)  As Christmas Day is just under 4 weeks away, I feel I must share a few pointers with you.  I come from a big family and that means we all get very creative when it comes to gift giving.  We tend to keep it simple and share baked goods, instead of spending money on store bought gifts.  (Hey, times are lean and I am frugal!)  Over at we have plenty of FREE recipes for you to add to your holiday baking list this year!

Please post a picture of your results at our site.  We love to see what's cookin' in your kitchen!

Another Year, Another Turkey!

Did you survive Thanksgiving dinner?  Hopefully most of us lived through the chaos that is making the side dishes, checking the turkey (not to mention getting up at like 5am to put the turkey in the roaster), mashing the taters, baking all the pies, playing hostess to a houseful of family and friends, and acting as stuffing sheriff.  Give yourself a high five for living to see another Thanksgiving come and go.  Now, what's for dinner?  It's gotta be something easy after the hustle and bustle of turkey day...Try one of these tasty recipes!  (The breakfast theme was purely unintentional.)
