Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!

This recipe comes from a cookbook called Muffins and Quick Breads, put out by the Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library. There are many tasty recipes in this little book, but this is one of my favorites.
2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 TB baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup dried currants or raisins, optional
Preheat oven to 400-F. Line 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray with PAM for baking.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, cream, milk, melted butter and currants. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just until blended.
Spoon into the prepared muffin tins, filling almost all the way. Bake ~20 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 min., then remove to wire rack.
