Let’s Make Some Bagels!

Nothing beats a good bagel. You can grab one from a bakery, while on the way to work, or buy a mass amount at grocery stores.  Bagels can also come in many flavors, plain, blueberry, cinnamon raisin, pumpkin, and so much more.  I almost feel like a child playing Pokemon, instead of catching them all, I have to try em’ all! I personally have always favored blueberry and cinnamon raisin. When I was a... read more

Butterscotch Ginger Cookies

Baking in the kitchen always gives you the freedom to create anything you want. The first Christmas with Walter’s family, I was so nervous. I had just started cooking and I wanted to impress all of the women in his family. I wanted them to know, even though I was just starting in my cooking path, Walter would be taken care of. I wanted to make a name for myself. My pride is very high. I honestly... read more

So, I am Lactose Intolerant

Pink Grapefruit Sandwich Cookies

My mother-in-law loves grapefruits. For years, she has been growing them and sending us home with TONS of grapefruits. At first, I didn’t like grapefruit. I never ate them when I was younger, but my honey lived off of them. So, I started eating them. They defiantly had a different flavor than I am used to, but I love them!  I like how you can taste the sweetness and bitterness. It is like a happy... read more

Swiss Rolls from Scratch!

Now, Swiss Rolls, hands down, are the best junk food ever. Well, wait, I take that back…. They are the SECOND best. (Cupcakes are #1 😉 ) I don’t eat them anymore, because of the processed foods, but I loved them as a child. My mother would buy them for all of us, while my brother enjoyed the oatmeal pies. I still remember my mother and I having them for breakfast, because we loved them so... read more

Gingerbread Cream Pies

Growing up, my mother used to buy oatmeal pies, swiss roll cakes, and everything in between. The oatmeal pies, were my brother’s (Andrew) favorite. We would always have a box for him, and sometimes he would share. We would have all these snacks, and we would all have our own favorite. It sometimes, even got to the point were we would hide it from one another, because we had a sharing problem. We... read more
