CLASSIC SHORTBREAD

Do you remember taking a treat to school for your birthday? What was your favorite dessert? I cannot believe that I do not remember! I remember my Mom made the most delicious chocolate peanut butter apples for my brother (recipe coming soon!) but I cannot remember what I requested. Most likely vanilla cupcakes if I…

SATURDAY MORNING CINNAMON ROLLS

I have what seems like hundreds of cookbooks. I love them. I love their beautiful photos, captivating titles (Nigella I really want to write How to be a Domestic Goddess Part II, is that OK with you?) and the endless possibilities hidden between the pages.

TRAVEL WITH BABY

We are incredibly blessed with quite possibly the happiest baby in the world, so that helped tremendously. Thank you Charlotte! Since this was our first time traveling so…
