My Favorite Quick Bread: Irish Soda Bread

I have to say that by far, my favorite quick bread is Irish soda bread. It is something that you can whip up as soon as you wake up in the morning and have with a coffee for breakfast.

Marshmallow Fondant Is A Thing

We recently celebrated one of my kid’s birthdays and I decided to try to up my baking game. I discovered that you can easily make fondant out of marshmallows which is pretty mind blowing for me.
