Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake is deliciously tender and moist with just the right amount of lemon flavoring. Topped with a lovely lemon glaze! It’s easy to make and is always a hit. When I first started baking, I stayed away from pound cakes. They felt like this perfect, special recipe that I had to get exactly right or risk ruining the whole thing. And, even more, I didn’t actually like the pound cakes I had tried. Often they were so dry. Eventually, I got up the courage (and the desire) to give it a try. I reworked an...

Yugoslavian Christmas Cookies

This is an unusual and incredibly sublime cookie. I had these for the first time over ten years ago at a neighborhood Christmas cookie swap.  When I took my first bite, I remember, I almost swooned! I loved that they were so unique and unusual. The crunchy nut and meringue topping over the berry shortbread crust was divine.  But there was something else…. another flavor mixed in that was just wonderful. Something very familiat that alluded me. I dicovered a bit later what  it was, when my sweet neighbor Linnell gave me the recipe.  It was the clean, crisp...
