Peanut Butter and Banana

My son had been asking for banana bread, so I finally made him some last week. I doubled the recipe and used half for muffins..half banana choclate chip, and half banana blueberry. I also made some peanut butter cookies, and shaped them using one of the kids toys for playdoh.

Welcome to my Blog!

I'm a first time blogger, so you might have to bear with me a bit as I get used to this. I love baking and cooking, and after discovering the world of baking blogs, I thought I'd start my own.
I'll post mostly baking, but some cooking and other odds and ends. I have 2 young boys, and also watch a couple other kids during the day, so I'll have lots of kid friendly things.

To start off, here's a picture of a cake I'm most proud of. I made this for my mom's birthday last's a raspberry swirl cheesecake topped with fresh fruit and glaze.
