Lemon Cream Bread – A+ in Cooking Project

Posted on: Feb 12, 2015        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: 4 comments
It has been a while since I have shared a recipe from my mother’s cookbook, A+ in Cooking. The idea was to find a muffin or breakfast bread recipe to share with you.  I for one was somewhat tired of having wheat toast every morning, and I wanted something different.  I also wanted to share […]

Anna’s Sweet Potatoes Au Gratin

Posted on: Nov 27, 2014        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: 2 comments
Anna sent me an email with the recipe for Sweet Potatoes Au Gratin: I can tell you it’s very good! I like it because I’m so tired of the same old recipe that involves marshmallows and brown sugar, or sometimes I just bake them with butter. This is very popular with several of my friends […]

Molasses Cookies – A+ in Cooking Project

It happens to the best of us.  A recipe does not compute.  As it is written, there are gaps in the description.  That is the case with this recipe for Molasses Cookies from my mother’s cookbook A+ in Cooking.  The directions are not complete.  Any experienced cook can figure out the recipe, but for someone […]

Mrs. Ralph recently reminded me about the pumpkin bread recipe from my mother’s cookbook A+ in Cooking.  She had made it, and was pleased how well it turned out.  Well, just the mention of this recipe spurred me into action.  Since I enjoy sharing recipes from Mother’s cookbook, and pumpkin bread is a perfect fall treat, I […]

Evelyn’s Crustless Broccoli & Cheddar Mini Quiches

Posted on: Oct 14, 2014        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: 2 comments
As a rookie hostess for the ladies monthly Round Table luncheon, it was a little intimidating to think that our committee was responsible not only for the decorations but also the food.  When I saw that Evelyn was on the hostess list, I breathed a sigh of relief.  Everyone knows that Evelyn is a fantastic […]

Cucumbers and Onions

Posted on: Sep 9, 2014        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: One comment
There is a difference of opinion at our house.  I know this might come as a shock to some of you, but others will completely understand.  When it comes to cucumbers and onions, Ever-Lovin’ likes the combination to be sweet.  I, on the other hand, like a more vinegary taste.  Sweet Mother of Pearl.  I […]

Compound Butter

For our Labor Day get together, we thought we would have steak.  At out house, this is beyond unusual.   Seldom do we buy steak for the whole gang.  Oh, we buy chuck roast and ground meat, but not steak.  On special occasions, Ever-Lovin’ and I enjoy a good steak at a steak house.  This got me […]

Never Fail Pie Crust – A+ in Cooking

This is the recipe that I have used forever – even before my mother’s cookbook – A+ in Cooking. First, my sweet cousin LaNell gave me a version of this recipe while I was dating Ever-Lovin’. Then I have at the same version of the recipe from Mother via Ann Sears via Mrs. Joe Morgan.  (Do you […]

Excellent Cook Nancy brought Friend BB some cookies – Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies to be exact.  Mrs. Ralph ate one of said cookies, and declared it the best cookie she had ever eaten.  Mrs. Ralph did not mention said cookie just one time, I bet she mentioned it a bazillion times (Okay, I exaggerate.) but….  I […]

Crock Pot Hot Chocolate

I was reminded again a few days ago that the Crock Pot Hot Chocolate recipe wasn’t on Lanabird.  Friends from ADK swore I had not posted it, and they wanted it.  Well, really I did post it, but it is hidden in the English Christmas Tea post.  I thought I would do it justice, and […]
