It has been a while since I have shared a recipe from my mother’s cookbook, A+ in Cooking. The idea was to find a muffin or breakfast bread recipe to share with you.  I for one was somewhat tired of having wheat toast every morning, and I wanted something different.  I also wanted to share […]

The other day I tasted one of Ever-Lovin’s store bought cookies, and I could not believe how horrible it was.  I asked him why he would eat such a thing.  He said he had to have something to snack on.  I felt about two inches tall.  I had neglected my man.  I promised I would […]
