Lemon Pound Cake

Oh, how I love lemon. It’s the flavor that says “yay it’s Spring”, to me. Well, actually, I love it all year long but during Spring time, I love it the most. Here is a recipe for a wonderful pound cake that is moist and tender and, of course, has just the right amount of lemon. I originally saw it on Tartelettes blog, but it is actually from Lori Longbotham, the fabulous cookbook author. This is the perfect cake to have for breakfast, tea time or to take on a picnic.  I hope you give it a try and...

Caesar Mayonnaise Dressing

Cranberry Bar Cookies

Well here’s a new one for the holiday cookie tray!  Well, anyway it’s a new one for me.  This gem was originally written to have a blueberry filling.  I made it that way a couple of times this summer and the whole fam really loved it.  I thought it would really be great for Christmas with a cranberry filling and, Viola!!!  There are few things I want to mention about this cookie before you make it.  One, its okay, if when, you spoon on the top layer, it has a few holes and or the filling is peeking through. ...
