Plum Cake Bread

Great neighbors are hard to come by. I know someone (who shall remain nameless) who lives next to a family where the kids play a game called "Am I Being Murdered?". An activity that's such fun, it has to be enjoyed during every single hour of every single day. A jolly good time for the… Continue reading Plum Cake Bread

Lemon Monkey Bread

Every monkey bread recipe I've ever seen is made with butter and brown sugar resulting in a caramel covered pull apart bread. This recipe intrigued me because of its main ingredient. Lemon. Lemon?

Lime makes me think of spring, and since it's snowing in the Seattle area today, I thought a dose of spring… Continue reading Lime Tea Cookies

Melting Moments

I first had this cookie at a tea party thrown by my good friend Lauren. She's from Australia and has the most delightful accent ever. Also, she made some delicious treats from her homeland. These cookies were one of my favorites. I went searching for a recipe for them (probably just should have asked "Loz"… Continue reading Melting Moments
