Whew! I have really had fun making Rice Krispie Treats lately, and last but not least, are my Rice Krispie Easter Baskets! They are super cute, and can be filled with whatever you want.

Peanut Butter S’more Bars I bake mostly from scratch but there is one thing that I don’t mind cutting corners with, my Peanut Butter S’more Bars. Why haven’t I tried to figure out a way to make these bars from scratch? Probably because it is so darned easy using Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix. Plus, […]...

A while back, I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to master the art of macarons. You know, the “pinky out” French confections. I failed the first time. Miserably.

New Jif Cashew and Almond Butters! Mom was an awesome baker, and everyone loved all of her cookies, but her peanut butter cookies were extra special. When we made these, my job was to roll the dough into balls, then roll them in sugar and press then flat using a fork. Oh my gosh, these […]...
