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!

These are really nice sweetened up with some butter and honey, or your favorite jam. They taste like cornbread, so could even be eaten for dinner with chili or stew.
1-1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (omit if you use salted butter)
1/3 cup unsalted butter, chilled
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg mixed with 1 tsp water for glaze (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly butter a 9-inch circle in the center of a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter in with a pastry cutter, or grate it in with a cheese grater, stirring to distribute.
In a small bowl, stir together the milk, egg and vanilla. Add liquid to flour mixture and stir to combine.
Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on the prepared baking sheet. If desired, brush the egg mixture over the top of the dough. With a serrated knife or pizza cutter, cut into 8 wedges. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until top is lightly brown. Re-cut into wedges and serve warm.
