Julia’s Biscuits

Julia’s Biscuits

Julia Child that is – one of my all-time kitchen faves. I used to watch Julia back when the real world only had access to 6 channels :: 4, 5, 9, 13, 25 & 43. Between Julia and Bob ((please tell me you know about Bob Ross)), […]

***THANKSGIVING DESSERT RECIPE ALERT*** Okay friends, I am going to blast a few recipes out over the next week. There will be very little commentary – not because they are not commentary worthy, but because this momma is full-up with life. These are TOO GOOD to them let […]

Mini Birthday Cookie Sandwiches, with Homemade Birthday Cake Buttercream

Mini Birthday Cookie Sandwiches, with Homemade Birthday Cake Buttercream

Sigh. Gracie did it. She went and added another finger to her age – and to make matters worse, that particular finger is on her second hand.  Well, and I didn’t even mention the trifecta of heartache :: she lost her first tooth ((twice, that is […]
