maybe one day…

I walk past this store front every time I go from work to the Daily Grind weekday mornings. It would be the PERFECT spot for Kara’s Cakery. Fell’s Point doesn’t have a stand-out cupcake/cake shop. I’m secretly hoping I get a call one day from someone with more money than they know what to do […]

chocolate peanut butter chip cookies

For this particular occasion, I decided to go with a rich chocolatecookie and add peanut butter chips. I highly recommend using a high quality cocoa powder, even […]

Here’s where the Penzey‘s Cinnamon Sugar comes in handy again – and with a shake of pumpkin spice as well. Using my new air […]
