Zucchini Bread

Tis the season to have lots of zucchini.  We are visiting with friends in Minneapolis (and yes, we are going to see the Tribe tonight!).  Dave and Deone have been great hosts.  Other friends, Kathy and Doug Gehlhar had us over for dinner.  Kathy made an absolutely delicious dinner.  I couldn’t stop eating the zucchini […]

Blueberry Cobbler

It is hard to believe that July 4th is just around the corner.  I am not one to rush things but this summer is flying by at a record speed.  Blueberry Cobbler is a great dessert anytime; however the colors are especially fitting for the 4th of July. Blueberry Cobbler 5 cups of fresh or frozen […]

Thanksgiving is here

Applesauce cake with Caramel Frosting

Today is election day. It is very important to exercise your right to vote. That is a right that came because of the sacrifices of our veterans. Friday is Veteran’s Day. My dad was in the Navy, my husband, aka the Butcher, was in the Army and my brother-in-law was also in the Army. I […]

Apple Cake

Is your recipe box like an old friend?  Mine is.  At one point I tried to organize my recipes and copy all of the recipes onto matching recipe cards.  Now, several years later I love the treasure hunt as I go through the recipes and see the scraps of paper with the recipes hurriedly written […]
