Hi folks. I am so pleased to bring you another edition of Burning Down The Kitchen. It's a weekly series where I have the pleasure of interviewing a fellow blogger.

I hope to show people that anyone can cook anything, and it does not have to look exactly like the photo in the recipe to be good. You can adapt recipes to your own taste, tweak them and make them your own. Trust me, if I … [Read more...]

Yup, I have issues. … [Read more...]

Momzie’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Mom's Peanut Butter Cookies by Cravings of a Lunatic

Hello Bloggers. I made some cookies yesterday. This is something my Mom used to make a lot when we were kids. There are so many memories tied to these cookies.

My Mom was not the best cook in the world. But there were a few things she excelled at in the kitchen. Peanut butter cookies is one of those things. … [Read more...]
