    I have e secret recipe

    for cookies that people seem to like a lot. It made my boys popular at school at lunch time when they were growing up and their old friends still remember my cookies :) It is a recipe my grandmother passed down to me a very long time ago, we keep it in the family.

    My boyfriend and I made some cinnamon raisin

    bread in a bread cooker. I don't know if that counts as baking because it literally does all the work, and isn't in an oven, but it's delicious!
