I love to bake but I am not actually the hugest fan of sweets.  Don’t get me wrong I adore a pretty cupcake but I usually end up eating one of the 2 dozen I bake and giving the rest away.  I am more of a salty/savory gal. 

So when my sister asked if I would bake her homemade crackers for her upcoming birthday I thought it was an awesome idea (click here for the recipe that inspired my sister from Much To My Delight blog).  Why not bake more savory items?

These crackers would be a perfect snack on Thanksgiving while waiting for the big meal. They would be great by themselves or paired with a dip. Yum. Now that’s my kind of baking.
