let the baking begin

This is going to be a big test.  I will be baking my little heart out all day until my friends start trickling into town starting tonight.  I win my friends over by feeding them.  I am hoping to bake cookies, muffins, and maybe some biscuits.  Biscuits because of this article in the Oregonian today:

I do love biscuits.  But I have never attempted making them.  This could be a stretch so I am not making any promises.  But the cookies are definitely on the way.  And the best way to get in the mood for a day of baking is by eating some homemade banana bread my mom just made.

Banana bread and coffee.  I am all fueled up and ready to get baking.  Any cookie recipe suggestions? Remember nothing too tricky.  I am a beginner!

    Here is the best new cookie recipe, lemon sugar cookies from Bon Appetit. I followed the recipe except for when you roll the dough in the sugar, don’t roll the whole ball, just dab a little on top. Have fun!

    If you like gingerbread cookies this is the greatest recipe. They are always a great hit at Christmas time but any time of year will do.

    Recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart……(I always add the baking soda with the dry ingrediants)
