She and my parents tweaked her original […]

Zucchini Bundt Cake

Apparently, Bundt Cakes are once again “in.” ¬†King Arthur Flour even named 2017 “Year of the Bundt.” ¬†I guess I really don’t move in the proper circles, because I never knew Bundt cakes were ever out. ¬†I have always loved Bundt cakes since my mom got her very first Bundt cake pan in the late(?) […]

Liege Belgian Waffles

While light, airy Belgian waffles that fill breakfast plates across the United States are very tasty, they are not my favorite of the Belgian waffles. ¬†Yes, there are actually two different types of Belgium waffles in the world. ¬†The light, airy one is often referred to as a Brussels waffle. ¬†The other smaller, sugar-laden type […]

Pineapple Fruit and Nut Cookies

My great-aunt Libby had a few foods¬†that she was known for and did exceptionally well. ¬†This is one of those foods…Pineapple Fruit and Nut cookies. ¬† My mom made them every year after she was given the recipe by Aunt Libby. ¬†They were some of the many cookies and other sweet treats that my mom […]

Orange Slice Cake

When¬†I found¬†the hand-written recipe for Orange Slice Cake in my mom’s recipe box, I briefly thought it was for the orange cake that our¬†neighbor, Gussie, frequently made and shared with us. ¬†It was her favorite. ¬†The thing is…no one in my family really liked orange cake. However, I knew not really enjoying it would never […]

Nut Bread Roll

One of the Christmas breads my mom made was a Nut Bread Roll. ¬† She was originally given the recipe by a neighbor of one of our relatives after mentioning that it was the best nut roll she had ever eaten. ( I am not sure how many she had ever eaten as they were […]

Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

My sister was the peanut butter pie maker in my house back in the day. Her peanut butter pies not only won her a ribbon at a 4-H competition, but they were frequently requested by family and friends. The easiest version of peanut butter pie she made was a frozen peanut butter pie. It may […]

Sour Cream Cake

My daughter wanted a vanilla cake with a blueberry filling and marshmallow frosting for her birthday. Although she does not like sour cream, she does like sour cream doughnuts (she just doesn’t know they are sour cream doughnuts), so I decided to make her vanilla cake a sour cream cake. Okay, I will admit sour […]

Pear Jello Salad

Gelatin salads remind me of my grandmother. ¬†I think she made a different one for every holiday. ¬†I loved ones with fruit and without cottage cheese. ¬†Cottage cheese in any gelatin salad was always a dissappointment to me and was not something I would usually eat…despite liking both Jello and cottage cheese seperately. I was […]

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Inspired by the delicious small-batch pumpkin ice cream at Clumpies in Chattanooga, I decided to make my own pumpkin ice cream for Thanksgiving. ¬†Despite my winging the recipe, it turned out great! ¬†Dare I say it…I think it may have even been better than Clumpies. Frankly, I think I like it better than pumpkin pie […]
