Quick Breads

Honey Beer Bread

I hope everyone’s week is going well. I started out my Monday morning with jury duty. ¬†After driving nearly 30 miles to the county justice center, the defendant for the case I was assigned was a no-show. A warrant was put out for his arrest, and I was released after sitting in the waiting room… Continue reading Honey Beer Bread

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Growing up, we usually used the recipe on the back of the Toll House chocolate chips package to make chocolate chip cookies.

I have to say, these are the most perfect… Continue reading Chocolate Chip Cookies

Although we celebrated Christmas here in Colorado with Alejandro’s family this year, I was able to make a short trip back home to stay with my mom and her husband for nearly a week. It was wonderful,… Continue reading Frosted Cranberry Drop Cookies

Spritz Cookies

I can’t believe Christmas is only a few days away! It is my absolute favorite holiday, and I can’t help but get excited in the month leading up to it. Although I was beyond stressed in the weeks before finals, I found time to put up our tree and small collection of Christmas decorations. It… Continue reading Spritz Cookies
