Baking Ineptitude Or Just Home Baker?

Tina / March 6, 2018

Over the last couple of years I have found myself baking less and less due to my husband’s issues with gluten. I have always considered myself a good home baker. Baking is something I enjoy whether cakes, cookies, candies or pies. So far I have not started breads other than in my new bread maker but would really like to…

The Cutest Coincidence

Tina / February 24, 2018

A friend of mine went to the zoo on her birthday.  She went as she loves elephants and there was babies. She knew that one of the babies was named McKenna (her name) but she didn’t know that the other was named Tina (my name). How cool is that?

Naughty Milkshakes

Tina / February 15, 2018
