    My Mom has been making these cookies for as long as I can remember. She will sometimes double or even triple the recipe if she’s making them for a big party. They’re the cutest little bite sized cookies and are always a big hit. Though there are no nuts in the cookie, there is almond…

    This is the lemon version of my Mom’s Chocolate Cake. I’m a chocolate lover, through and through, but this lemon cake is tough to beat. The lemon glaze on top is SO delicious and really pretty. I like to garnish the cake with fresh berries. This cake is rich and moist but has light and…
