  • A Trial Run and Holiday Cookie Recipes

    Holiday cookie recipes.  Yes, but first… Ever since I was forced to upgrade to Windows 10 (which was shortly after I  published my last post) there have been issues with my computer.  I’ve spent a lot of time tracking down the culprit(s) that seemed to kick me off-line and into complete isolation.

The older I get the less I like the winter months.  I’d rather be sunning myself rather than taking a vitamin D supplement, camping in […]

    Homemade Dog Biscuits

    Our Christmas tree is up and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here at The Joy of Caking.  Now let the baking begin! The first item on my “To Bake List” was homemade dog biscuits.  These  bite sized treats are for sweet little Annie and all her cute furry brothers and sisters – our granddogs. The best part of making homemade dog […]
