    Holiday breads to give or keep

    In my family, Christmas and Easter were (are) the two most traditional times of the year when we love to make holiday breads. They smell great while baking, the warmth of the kitchen adds to the cozy feeling, and of course the flavor of a fresh-baked bread, maybe along with a cup of tea, coffee ...

    Some holiday go-alongs

    Christmas is coming, and that's not news for any of us, but it's never too soon to start planning your festive meal. For me, coming up with main dish ideas is a lot easier than it is with side dishes. That might be because there are a lot more options for sides, and I have a harder time choosing...

    No doubt about it, I just LOVE homemade candy (not that I am apt to turn down store-bought candy).

So, it's no wonder that a freshly-baked, cinnamon-sweet sticky bread that you pull apart with your ...

    Dripping with honey makes for sweet dishes

    If you are like me and you really like honey, especially local honey, I thought it would be fun to share some recipes that use this sweet, sticky ingredient. There are so many different types and flavors of honey. I tend to prefer the lighter, milder ones, but of course everyone has their own favorites...

    Hot dogs - one of America's favorites any time of year

    I must admit that as I get older, there are certain things about camping that aren't as easy or appealing as when I was much younger. A trailer or camper beats a tent now, as one example, even though that sometimes limits camp site access, depending on where you like to camp. Many of our favorite...

    Churning up some old-fashioned ice cream

    Many of us love peaches and many love ice cream. Why not combine the two foods and concentrate on peach ice cream this week? I know I'm up for that. We have an old-fashioned ice cream maker, the kind that requires turning a handle to make the paddles churn.

    Confetti ... funfetti ... it's all the same

If you have a need or desire to do any summertime baking, it might be fun to check out some of these colorful, fun recipes for cakes and cupcakes. ...
