I have been baking up a storm the entire month of December, one of the many reasons I love this time of year. I have made cookies, candies, breads, cake, etc. but I am not finished yet. I am still making last minute treats to give out as gifts to neighbors, friends, and family. I […]

If I let my husband decide on the dinner menu every night, he would choose pizza. He could eat pizza for every meal and never get sick of it. I like pizza, but not that much. We usually make pizza once a week. We try to mix things up with new crusts, toppings, and sauces. […]
