We’ve made it to mid-week! Give yourselves a pat on the back… and a cookie. This week has definitely been better than last for me, and it’s not even over yet. On Sunday, I hit 10,000 Facebook fans! Monday brought great news about my...

Though I’m not ready for Christmas to be dripping from the ceilings of every department store (yea, I’m talking to you, Hobby Lobby), I am definitely ready for some fall baking! I mean, at least while it’s still scorching here in Austin I can...

What are your favorite ingredients to cook and bake with in the summer? For me, it’s fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables like strawberries, zucchini, lemon and bell peppers. I do much more stovetop cooking than hot-oven baking in the summer, though, since firing up...

I have been up to my ears in raspberries lately, and I’m lovin’ it! In everything from oatmeal to cobblers, cupcakes to cocktails, they’ve added a perfect tangy-sweet punch. As much as I wish I could grow a bush bursting with them, alas, my...
