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 […]

Home-made Christmas gifts

Even though it is raining outside–the calendar says it is December the 6th. That means Christmas is less than 3 weeks away. Gift giving is a nice tradition. I like gifts from the heart and sometimes gifts from the hands. I enjoy cooking so it is easy to “make” Christmas gifts for family and friends. […]

Coconut Cream Pie

We just got in sweetened coconut at our market.  I could not wait to make Coconut cream pie.  One thing about making Coconut Cream pie–once you start there is no turning back.  You must cook the filling and cover it immediately with meringue and bake in the oven. Whew.  I can’t wait to try this […]

Strawberry Ice Cream

I went to Rittman Orchards and picked fresh strawberries.  I have not done this since I was a child and forced to do this with my family–child labor laws were not in effect back then.  Isn’t it funny how things are much more enjoyable when you, as an adult, decide to do things, compared to […]

This Post is for the Birds!

I am not insulting my reading audience.  This post is for the birds and bird lovers.  I have a backyard with trees and flowers and I love to watch the birds, squirrels and chipmunks.   I am especially fond of Cardinals and hummingbirds.  In our landscaping we have a Service Berry Tree right up against […]

Spinach Salad

I went on a field trip yesterday to get the spinich and purple onions for my spinach salad.  There is a jewel of a fruit market at 3054 Greenwich Rd., Wadsworth, Ohio.  Acme Hill Farm Market is about 3 1/2 miles west of the center of Wadsworth.  I bought fresh produce and was delighted to […]

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 […]

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole 6 to 8 Cups of mashed sweet potatoes (5 to 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced thick and boiled […]
