Men love this stuff! Trust me! Make a batch, put it in a tin and it will be a most welcome gift!

Added December 5th.  Notice the post date above!  As of this minute - the entire tin is gone!  My man simply could not keep his mitts off of these!

Making Almond Butter Crunch is very, very easy and is perfect for beginning candy makers.

COOKIES!

It is time to bake cookies! And make candy! And bake sweet breads and sweet treats!

My favorite time of year - Winter Holidays - is here! Sunday the 27th was the first Sunday of Advent and in Holland the celebration of the Feast of St. Nicholas is already begun! It is high time to warm up the oven and bake up some yummy goodness!

Apparently, there are several cultures in the world that regard Twelfth Night - also know as Three Kings Day or Epiphany - as a great time to eat a very special cake!

I decided to make baking a special cake on Twelfth Night a new tradition at my house - beginning this year! With this very cake - Gâteau Basque.
