Thanksgiving Celebration

Yesterday was a big day for me.  Of course, I was excited for Thanksgiving.  For chefs and food lovers, this is the biggest day of the year.  We are like small children at Christmas time with all the amazing food around.  I love making people happy with my food, and there is no better day…

Lofthouse-Style Frosted Cookies

I came across this recipe a couple weeks ago when I was looking for ways to use up egg whites.  I had been using a bunch of egg yolks when I made ice cream and gluten free pasta dough, and I didn’t want to waste all these egg whites.  I wanted to make something exciting,…
