Milk Bread

This bread is a revelation! Milk bread is so incredibly soft and light it’s crazy. It stays fresh for a few more days than regular bread – not that I’ve had it stick around long enough to see how long exactly! It doesn’t dry out as quickly as regular bread which, from what I understand,

I don’t like regular banana bread – I will disguise it by making banana muffins or I will add chocolate chips to it or anything, really, rather than make plain banana bread. It has bad connections for me and I find it’s always…wet and heavy. Blech! I do like chocolate, though, and I always seem

Oh, sandwich bread – how I love thee! I have a couple bread/bun recipes that I use all the time, but I’m always interested, when I have time, in trying new ones. This is a pretty basic recipe, but there were a couple techniques for determining how the dough is doing that I thought I

A week or so ago, we bought some cheese buns from Costco (I know, big shock, I bought stuff at Costco). Today, I grabbed the last one….and it was fuzzy blue….well, not fuzzy blue, but it had fuzzy blue freckles….short story long, it was compost. I really wanted that bun. So I made some today.

I’m not a prepper, I am, however, a person who stocks for a rainy day. When toilet paper was difficult to find or we were only allowed to buy one package, we had a stash. Not a big stash, but a stash of a package ahead of what we needed. So I buy canned goods,

I needed chocolate. Had to have chocolate. Didn’t want brownies. Didn’t want cookies. Figured I’d give a chocolate cake a try. This is The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. Let me preface my mess up with this: the recipe and instructions are very clear. I had a brain fart. I do not have a sheet cake pan.

My mom used to make these when I lived at home….I don’t remember if they were for special occasions or just because. Knowing my dad’s love of dessert and such, probably both occasions were reason enough to make them. I rarely make the tarts, though. I don’t like making pastry. I now am able to

My furnace died a week and a half ago. 11 days it took to get a new one in and hooked up. I truly wish I owned my house and wasn’t relying on someone else to do & fix things. When I initially called in the problem with the furnace, the exhaust fan on the

I always end up with leftover mashed potatoes. I overestimate how much we’re going to eat, or I underestimate how big those potatoes really are….one way or another, there’s always a small bowl of leftovers hiding in the fridge. The more I cook, and I cook a lot, the more little leftover bowls there will

Cherry Crumble

It’s a classic….not necessarily the cherry part of the proceedings, but the crumble. When I bought the can of pumpkin for the pumpkin bars, they were on sale. I don’t like pumpkin enough to stock two cans, I prefer fresh or frozen blueberries to canned, and the cherry one looked so inviting. The picture looked
