Our youngest daughter is married to a Brazilian. Not only is he an exceptional handyman and can fix just about anything, we also have been introduced to these yummy, cheesy snacks. They are easy to make, only take a few ingredients (although most people probably will need to get some tapioca flour), and everyone loves them. … Continue reading Wednesday Baking: Pao de Quejo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) Gluten Free

Most references I found trace the English muffin back … Continue reading Baking Wednesday: English Muffins, Part Two
I'm going to try something new here for the winter season. I want to do more baking this winter, because, well, I like to bake!
