What’s with cheesecake?  It looks perfect until you take it out of the oven.  Or until it cracks… Am I right?  The same with this bread.  I tried so hard to get that beautiful, full, domed top on muffins and quick breads that I love so much(and that whole grain breads are quite often lacking) […]

There is honestly nothing better than spending a warm sunny spring afternoon outside for as long as you can until it starts to get cold.  My husband is replacing our fence this weekend so he was getting a bit of a head start yesterday evening.  While we were doing things around the yard the kids […]

Today has been a kitchen day.  Do you ever assign days for certain things?  I know for myself I have cleaning days and laundry days and today just happened to be a kitchen day.  Not that I don’t spend time in the kitchen every day of course.  But kitchen days I spend way more time […]
