Anti-Trump Cookies

For those of you who don’t know, I love baking.  It’s a bad, bad thing!  I mean, it brings me joy, but it wreaks havoc on my waistline. I enjoy making my own bread.  Lately, Mr. C has gotten in on the action and he adds seeds, herbs, and spices to the breads before they …

We Will Rebuild
