Even though I hate to admit it, summer has more or less slipped through our fingers.

Gingersnaps? No no no! I am talking about rich, buttery, deeply spicy, snappy Gingersnaps. You know – the good […]

Toasty Coconut Almond Bars

One strategy I always use as part of Christmas baking is to always have a few favorite bar cookies that I can whip up in a hurry and have ready to fill out cookie trays or gift boxes without a lot of fuss. It’s also especially nice if the bar cookies are a little unusual […]
