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 […]

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 […]

The backstory I am about to tell you is true. (Honestly, I couldn’t make something like this up.)  Names are not use to protect whoever needs to be protected. My mother’s dearest friend had a husband who was a cousin of the governor of the Great State of Arkansas.  Get it?  Friend’s husband was related […]
