Black Raspberry Muffins

Am I the only one out there who would rather bake with black raspberries than blueberries?? I LOVE black raspberries! I realize they’re harder to find, but if you’re lucky enough to know where to find some, you need...

Cheese Straws

These are seriously somewhat addictive. At least that’s my opinion – I don’t think Mike was a huge fan, but I probably could have eaten half the batch last night after they came out of the oven. They taste...
