Don’t Trifle with me

A while back my mother called to reminisce about a dessert I made for my family last summer. They were talking about how awesome it was and how it would be so wonderful if I could make them one when I had the time – no rush, just whenever I had the time. The thing…

Sweet Tarts

Babydoll has fallen in love with raspberries and blackberries. They are something that is a must purchase every time I go to the grocery store (along with apples, oranges, grapefruit, grapes…we are fruit eaters y’all). These wonderful berries are eaten for breakfast (with eggs and toast), as a snack (because….it’s raspberries and blackberries), or for…

Just a little caramel

This past Christmas and every Christmas, my parents hosted the family brunch – usually the Saturday before Christmas.  This allows their offspring and their offspring to be able to fulfill any in-law obligations without stress.  Between me and my siblings, our spouses and children and in some cases their children there are over 20 of…
