Yummy Recipes

Since I have been cooped up in the house for the past 3 days, I decided I would bake. I know what your thinking...Hayley Bake? Over the Christmas break I found that I really do like to bake and cook if I have the time. Usually when I get home from school I don't want to do either. I have found some new recipes that I have enjoyed and wanted to share them with you. The first recipe is for cookies. It is by far my favorite cookie. What better ingredients than peanut butter and chocolate chips? They are so yummy! The next recipe was given to me by a friend in our community group ( Elizabeth Ray). I'm not a huge chocolate lover but this pound cake is divine. I have made it A LOT!! Everyone always loves it and wants the recipe. The final recipe is a quick and easy fix. It is my mom's recipe and she has made it ever since I was little. It has 5 ingredients and thats it. I hope you enjoy what I have been enjoying!
