Orange Glazed Pumpkin Gingerbread: Feeding the Addiction

Guys, bad news. I’ve been bitten, badly. By the competition bug, that is. I’m telling you, these baking contests are dangerous and addicting. I don’t know what it is about them…maybe they bring out the Type A freak in me that loves precision and detail? Who knows!? Nevertheless, as I was walking out of my …

Lemon Blueberry and Chocolate Orange Macarons: Il Est Facile!

Hey ya’ll! (Yes, that’s right. Please imagine me saying that in the voice of Savannah’s very own Paula Deen.) We’ve just left Savannah, having walked about a million miles, sweat about million gallons, and eaten about a million pounds of sweets. So, that’s what this blog is going to be mostly about: Savannah’s sweets. We …
