Gingerbread Cut Out Cookies

The Christmas season is in full swing; my husband and I braved Black Friday shopping (late in the afternoon, of course), the house is decorated and we had the annual cookie baking day at my Grandma’s this past weekend.

Last year was our first apple picking adventure and despite the cold and windy weather that day, we quickly decided to Continue reading

I was very lucky growing up in a beautiful home where my parents always cooked delicious meals and baked wonderful desserts! Quick side story? Continue reading
