German Chocolate Thumbprints

The recipe really does sound so good and I am going to try it the next time we have company … Continue reading

S’More Cookies*

Mr. Smarty Pants made his point that he was tired of running back and forth to get baking items for me when he brought this home this weekend. I put it beside the 25 lb sack of sugar that he made me buy and told him that I had had enough of his smart alec … Continue reading

Fall Baking

We made a run to Costco today. Peter Pumpkin is already getting tired of me sending him to the store every couple of days to retrieve sugar, eggs or more flour.
