How To: Easy No-Spatter Bacon Makin’

This OMT how-to is the easiest you’ll ever read here, unless I tell y’all to forget about the recipe and order out. The first time I made bacon, crispy-crunchy-bacon straight from the oven, I couldn’t stop telling folks about this life-changer (kinda like the life-changing steaming hard boiled eggs post). Weirdly, I forgot to write […]

Scottish Shortbread Love

In the realm of all thangs cookie-like, shortbread is my fav. I could eat shortbread, in any form, every day. NomNomNom. While Garry prefers traditional shortbread, I also enjoy this Dark Chocolate Shortbread, which I think makes an excellent gift.

A Non-Stick Silicone Baker’s Mat = A Happy Baker

One year for Christmas I received an unexpected gift from Boy that I honestly thought I’d never use; I got a silicone non-stick baker’s mat.
