Chocolate Fudge Cake

I’m breaking out the Betty Crocker Boys & Girls Cookbook today. I don’t know what year this one is. It’s missing half the pages. But, it still has the recipe for chocolate cake & that’s the most important anyway.

Nacho Dip

Today’s recipe is short & sweet, quick & easy, because honestly, I feel like I’m nearing the end of a month-long cooking marathon & I’m running out of gusto. I’ve probably spent more time typing up this recipe than I did actually making the dip. Never fear, it passed my taste test. I may be […]

Apple Crisp

A classic recipe gets a gluten-free makeover. Next time, I’ll fill the dish with apples. As many as it will hold.Feel free to use any size pan and pack it full of apples or a mixture of apples & rhubarb. Apples & cherries. Whatever you have floating around. Double the topping for a 9×13 pan. ingredients: […]

Banana Split Ice Box Dessert

I bought a box of handwritten recipes at an estate sale & found this in there. It sounds really good, but then again, I do like coconut. I changed the recipe a bit because I can’t follow a recipe or sewing pattern even when I try. I also replaced the raw eggs with cream cheese. […]

Spaghetti Pie

I’ve seen quite a few recipes for spaghetti pie floating around Pinterest. They do look tasty, but most include cream of this-or-that soup and fake cheese. To quote Amy Poehler “Good for her, not for me.” I’m not claiming this is a totally healthy meal, I just draw the line a canned soup & “not cheese”. […]

Bacon & Egg Salad

My hens have been working overtime and my refrigerator is full of eggs, so I have been scrambling (yep) trying to find ways to use them up. I keep a huge bowl of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. They make a great snack with a little Lawry’s salt. When I get sick of that, I […]

Asparagus with Cheese

It’s finally springtime in Michigan! The asparagus & rhubarb are popping up like wildflowers. When we bought this house, in November in Michigan, there wasn’t much to see. In the spring, as the grass started growing and we started working in the yard, we discovered all sorts of hidden treasures. A trash pile in the backyard, […]
