Bulls Eye!

Bulls Eye!

The daring baker challenge this month was cheesecake. We were given total creative freedom in this challenge, which I love! The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey’s Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge. I ended up using a […]

Blondies Have More Fun

Its been a long time since I’ve made blondies. Years and years. I don’t understand why, though. They are SO easy and so tasty. Even more, my hubby loves the simplicity of them. Believe it or not, he doesn’t like the fancy cookies I make, […]
