German Biscuits — a VERY vintage ((and equally delicious)) recipe

One of my favorite things?? — vin­tage cook­books! I have a pret­ty exten­sive col­lec­tion, thanks to one of my oth­er favorite things — estate sal­ing. ((PS did you know there is a whole mass of peo­ple won­der­ing what’s the cor­rect spelling for garage/estate sal­ing — sale-ing? Some “schol­ars” actu­al­ly insist there is no appro­pri­ate “hyphen-ing” addi­tion, rather a writer should pen the fol­low­ing “today I went to a few garage sales”. Humphf.)) Con­tin­ue read­ing

BTW, I will share a brief “Becom­ing a Pas­ta Mak­er 2.0” in an upcom­ing post ((so get ready)). Con­tin­ue read­ing

Best Friend’s Pizza Crust

I am blessed to have a best friend whose friend­ship has spanned decades ((Lau­ra)). She is a tal­ent­ed, self-taught bak­er (among many oth­er tal­ents). I am so impressed with her cre­ations and have always been a lit­tle intim­i­dat­ed. She often says, as she chuck­les “Oh, please! it’s so easy girl…you CAN do it, trust me!” Con­tin­ue read­ing
