Baking Time

Fall and Winter are my favorite times of the years, summer can suck it! lol Anyway, one of the reasons that it is, that it seems like this is when Mom’s, Grandma’s, Sister’s, yadda yadda bake. There is nothing better, then being outside running around, having some fun in the cool crisp air, then coming into the house and being met by the awesome aroma of fresh cookies or pie or bread or cake or whatever. It’s the most comforting feeling in the world. Now usually when I bake my stuff looks like this: or like this: (if you step away from your screen and look at these cookies, don’t the little house ones look like someone’s pants that are hiked WAY up, I call them high crotch cookies) But this year is going to be different. Oh yes I am determined to bake up a storm and not burn my house down in the process. Stacie 1-888-430-2010
