Halloween Cake with Meringue Ghosts

Ideally, use the Spiced Carrot and Walnut Cake or Ginger, Pecan and Salted Caramel Cake for this. If you have time, do make the little gingerbread house, poached pears and meringue ghosts. This is a great cake to do with kids, as everyone can decorate their own ghosts! Try making ghosts to ...

Cooking With Cast Iron

As you know, I love cast iron! It is durable, easy to clean and care for, and brings back warm memories of my childhood. I cook just about everything in cast iron.Last week, we had smothered pork chops and roasted asparagus — both cooked in cast iron in the oven. I fry, bake, broil, and even ...

Farmhouse Cranberry Crumb Cake

The colors are changing here on the farm and it is time for coffee cakes and conversations. This is a cake that I make all the time when I am looking for a cheap and quick cake for unexpected company. As a lover of cranberries, I always have then in my freezer. Feel free to use whichever ...

No-Bake Blueberry Pie

It’s blueberry season at the homestead. We pick every year at a friend’s patch, and if it’s a good berry year, like this year, August usually finds us eating a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry pies, and other blueberry desserts. When it’s hot I hate to use the oven, so more and more ...

German Holiday Breakfast Cake

I wanted to share this special recipe because it is perfect for holiday entertaining. I am lucky enough to get the culinary benefits of having an Austrian-German sharing my kitchen; this is a recipe that he developed and perfected over time. I love to bake delicious goods over the course of the ...

Homemade Soft Pretzels

I love baking but most of the year there is just too much to do relating to the garden. But in the winter, I’m freed to spend time with the oven! When it comes to baking, I seem to especially enjoy trying new recipes for complicated things that are cheap to buy already-made, ha ha. In ...

Pumpkin Apple Pie Recipe

For Thanksgiving I couldn’t decide if I should make a pumpkin pie or an apple pie. There were only seven of us so I didn’t feel that making both would be a good idea, unless we wanted lots of extra pie left over. Not always a bad thing, I admit, but I want my pants to fit!I compromised ...

Texas Tornado Cake Recipe

I have had this recipe for decades and I am planning to include it in my upcoming ebook. I am not sure about the origin of the name, perhaps it refers to all the fruits, nuts and coconut looking like a "mess" a tornado left behind. This cake is also known as Fruit Cocktail Cake. This is a ...

Apple Bundt Cake

With the 60 or so pounds of apples we picked from wild and abandoned trees this year, I have had to reach pretty far into my recipe box to use them up. A friend gave me her Aunt Fran’s apple cake recipe years ago. Her aunt would be over 100 if she was alive today, so I think the recipe dates ...

Chocolate Beet Cake

We had a very successful beet harvest this year. Maybe too successful, if you are like me and aren’t such a fan of beets. I’ve been casting about trying to figure out good ways to use some of them up when I came across a beet cake recipe. I’d printed it out a few years back but never ...

Rose’s Country Pumpkin Muffins

Fall is pumpkin time and pumpkin is very versatile to cook with. It can be found in both savory and sweet dishes. Everyone is familiar with traditional pumpkin pie but I have found a different way to celebrate pumpkin. This is a really easy, fast and scrumptious pumpkin muffin recipe. The ...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Box Cake

This year, as my birthday rolled around, I wanted to reprise last year’s ice cream cake recipe. But as the date approached, it became apparent that it would be way too hot to bake the bottom layer of an ice cream cake. I started looking around for a recipe that would satisfy – one with no ...

Recipe for Irish Soda Bread

With all the baking I do and being a bit Irish (can you guess by my name?), you would think that I’d have made Irish Soda Bread before, but no. Last Saturday was my first attempt. I would have searched through my grandmother’s cookbook to find her recipe but it is already packed deep in a ...

Bake Cookies With Your Leftover Halloween Candy

I poked around in our “junk drawer” last week to discover a bag of Kit Kat candy bars left over from Halloween stuffed in the back. Uh oh! Jim and I don’t usually eat candy, so I had to think about what to do with it. I decided to use it in a cookie recipe, because we DO eat ...
