Summertime Memories (Recipe: Cherry Chocolate Float)

Summertime… when the living is easy. Or at least it was when I was a kid. I have fond memories of playing Red Rover, having dance contests to politically incorrect songs, working lemonade and brownie stands on 30th Drive, playing Wonder Woman in my underoos. Life was easy and carefree. As I got older, playing […]

For the Love of Bars (Recipe: Sugar Cookie Bars)

I married into a family of bar lovers. No – not the “let’s go out to the bar” lovers (although there are a few of those)… the other kind. The kind that you bake and eat. For every occasion or non-occasion when we are all together, you can bet that there are at least a […]
