This Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe is the most requested cookie recipe from my husband and children.  It’s taken some adjusting over the years, but the end result is perfect.  My personal three cardinal rules of baking apply.  They are: 1) For any baked goods, use White Lily Flour.  2) Always, always completely preheat your oven.  and […]

Cherry Pie reminds me of Lums Diner in Peoria, hot tea, good friends, and deep conversation.  Back in my high school days, my crowd and I would congregate at the the Lums Diner, as years of soul searching, bored, but generally well behaved teenagers had done before us. This wasn’t your wild crowd, it was […]
