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!

One can never have enough no-bake dessert recipes to make during these hot summer months. Here is a very simple and YUMMY recipe I found in a magazine called Family Almanac, that was at the doctor's office. Yes, I ripped it out and put it in my purse :-)
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
2 TB water
1/2 cup sugar
1 pint whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Put the blueberries in a saucepan with the water and sugar, and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until berries are soft and have released their juices. Remove the pan from the stove and cool.
While the blueberries are cooling, beat the whipping cream on highest speed, til soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Mix in the vanilla extract.
When blueberries are cool, fold them gently into the whipped cream until well-combined. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, then spoon into serving dishes.
