She did wonderful. I’m so proud of her! My honey celebrated his birthday- and it’s tradition to have the […]

These egg rolls are so great- serve them with a side of guacamole or sour cream, and they will be the hottest appetizer at your New Year’s Eve party! You’ll be called the hostess with the mostess. In stead of egg roll wrappers, I used small wonton wrappers- more bite size. I also baked my […]

But these cookies all turned out pretty much perfect. I couldn’t have planned them better. Can you see the pretzel pieces? The dark chocolate chips? […]
