Tasty Treats Recipes

My Mom, bless her heart, was an amazing baker. I often stood by as a child and watched as she prepared all the ingredients for pies, cakes, cookies and more. Her desserts were phenomenal. I'd like to share some of her recipes and my own as well. When the lockdowns came last year, I found myself baking like never before. I've tried apple pie, peach pound cake, strawberry rhubarb pound cake, cranberry muffins and chocolate chip cookies to name a few. I hope you enjoy my recipes.
