Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well.

Did't have the brandy or rum extract so used the "real" stuff. I also rolled in colored sugar for grandkids.
My family loves this recipe. I was not able to find brandy extract so I used brandy instead. So yummy and delicious.
I have made these for about 20 years. I roll mine in a combination of white and colored sugar so they look more festive

Been making these for years-really about 25! They were in the first Land O Lakes Cookie book I got for sending in end flaps!

Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
