New To Me Recipes

These two photos are from my new favorite cookbook by Katie Quinn Davies, “What Katie Ate on the weekend.” Here is the RECIPE if you want to make them. I did not have, nor could I find the sour, or morello, cherries. And I also could not find the Dutch process cocoa powder. So I used dried cherriesContinue reading “New To Me Recipes”

Banana Walnut Muffins

    I have both of Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbooks, and this muffin recipe is from her first one, “My Father’s Daughter.”  It is very easy to make, and pretty healthy. I, as usual, used what ingredients I have in my house, so it’s a little altered from hers. Banana Walnut Muffins 1/4 cup plus 2Continue reading “Banana Walnut Muffins”

Vanilla Pudding with Chocolate Shavings

      I found this recipe in one of my old Martha Stewart Living magazines. I’m going to share the recipe because posted it online. I’m just looking for fun stuff to photograph. Anyway, it’s pretty easy to make and very tasty. Vanilla Pudding 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1/2 cup sugar A pinchContinue reading “Vanilla Pudding with Chocolate Shavings”

Blackberry Crumb Breakfast Bars

      The blackberries I used for this recipe were picked by my husband and me last summer near our house. We have a ton of them in our freezer; so anytime I can, I use them in a recipe. This one is actually a raspberry recipe that I found on either Goop’s website orContinue reading “Blackberry Crumb Breakfast Bars”

A Call for Entries

  I am beginning TWO new projects within my blog:  1: An art project of me wearing the same dress in every photo. (I’ll explain the meaning in a later post) and…… 2: A continuation of my baked goods project, but with other people’s mother’s or grandmother’s recipes. So! If you have a special baked goodContinue reading “A Call for Entries”

Spicy Fruit Bars

These are really rich, but delicious. I did not have any prunes, so I used Craisins instead. But they still turned out really good. Ingredients 1 cup pared chopped apple 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup prunes (I used Craisins) 1/3 cup molasses 1/4 cup orange juice 1/4 cup butter 2 cups flour (I used gluten-freeContinue reading “Spicy Fruit Bars”

Walnut (or Hickory) Cake

This is a recipe from my great grandmother’s collection she cut out of one of the Chattanooga, Tennessee newspapers back in the 60s or 70s. It was submitted by a lady from Sewanee, Tennessee. I had a few problems with it – of course. The entire time I was making it, I kept thinking, “AsContinue reading “Walnut (or Hickory) Cake”

Prize Date Bars – Mrs. Shuptrine’s

My great grand mother had two date bar recipes, and I can never remember which one is better. I think I like the other recipe better now that this one is made, but this one is really good, too. It does call for cloves, though. Next time I will probably leave them out. Cloves tend toContinue reading “Prize Date Bars – Mrs. Shuptrine’s”

Cinnamon Honey Butter

I did not make this. It was a Christmas present from my sister, and it is really good. I just liked the little tag, so I though I would take a few photos. 1/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature 3 tablespoons honey 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt Combine butter, honey, cinnamon andContinue reading “Cinnamon Honey Butter”

Banana Pudding – attempt no. 1

  This is another recipe of my great grandmother’s. It came out pretty good, but not perfect. My first mistake was using a bowl that was too large for the recipe. I think it calls for a deep, glass pie dish? But to my defense, it was all I had. I plan to re-do thisContinue reading “Banana Pudding – attempt no. 1”
