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 […]

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 […]

People who know and have experienced the Village Baking Company speak in awe of their breads.  I had heard of this bakery, but had no idea where it was.  When MarshaChristmas asked if it would be okay to stop by the Village Baking Company after lunch, I was beyond excited.  This artisan bakery has been on […]

Orange Muffins

Thought it was time I shared the Orange Muffin recipe that I made for the ADK meeting.  (I promised I would.)  This recipe is a recipe from Helen Corbitt.  It is easy to make and delicious.  I like these muffins because they keep well, and you can even freeze them. I was reminded of this […]

Crescent Tidbits – A+ in Cooking Project

Posted on: Mar 2, 2014        In: In the Kitchen, Recipes        With: One comment
Many moons ago when there was a Main Street Antique Mall in downtown (if there is such a thing) Richardson, Nedra ran the tearoom. With every meal she served Crescent Tidbits.  Tiny delicious puffs of bread.  Often I would wonder what happened to that recipe.  I asked friends that had also been in that mall […]

Summer Berry Muffins

The picture in the Dallas Morning News caught my attention. In the Wednesday food section, Alicia Ross shares recipes.  Her column is called Kitchen Scoop – what a cute name.  The pictured muffins were filled with summer fruits – strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.  As I read the recipe, my mouth was watering, and I knew […]

Excellent Cook Nancy and I have been to the Le Cordon Bleu MasterChef Cooking School, and we have certificates to prove it. Many moons ago, Excellent Cook Nancy and I brought a TravelZoo (I think) discount voucher for a cooking class at Le Cardon Bleu.  They teach MasterChef Cooking Classes each Saturday.  Finally we were […]

An idea has been mulling in my brain for some time.  Buttered Rum Banana Bread (click to see the original post)  is a favorite at our house.  I wrote about this recipe, and how easy breezy it is to make, (You mix it by hand.) and it is utterly delicious.  But I got to thinking, and […]

Sprite and Sweet Cream Biscuits

The story I am about to tell is true.  It is a little weird, but that’s how life is. Super Sister had pinned or repinned a recipe on Pinterest for 7.Up Biscuits.  About a bazillion people repinned her pin.  This was a hot recipe.  I so wanted to see what all the fuss was about. […]

Pepper Cheese Palmiers

Pepper Cheese Palmiers Peppery, full of Cheddar and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses, crunchy, and delicious just begins to describe these savory palmiers.   I love that name – palmiers. Makes me think I am cooking fancy.  In reality, these are easy sneezy and so good.  Most of the time palmiers are sweet, but this savory version is equally […]
