Labor Day is upon us and time for end of summer cookouts, parades, and sweet treats. I have an easy homemade ice cream sandwich cookie treat that is sure to be a great hit for you family and friends.
The 4th of July is around the corner. It is great to join in the celebration of our country’s independence and make a few memories with family and friends. There are so many different things to do for the 4th of July that will keep everyone entertained, visually inspired, and mouth’s watering. If all of this interests you, I have some great DIY projects and recipes that will get you started for your 4th of July get together.
Spring brings us cool mornings which is a great time for a yummy easy baked oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal is a wonderfully versatile and inexpensive food, but it makes cool spring morning’s even better. The farmer’s markets and the road side fruit and vegetable stands are beginning to fill up with berry offerings. This will allow you the opportunity to play with different tastes to complement your warm and taste oatmeal breakfast.
I absolutely love brussel sprouts and I am always looking for new recipes to try and ahhhh have I found one.
It is getting that time of year when the days are getting shorter, night air is cooler, and the craving of warm things begins to start stirring.
I have been searching for a scratch made Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe for a special occasion. I really enjoy making things from scratch just like my grandmother did. I can’t ever remember seeing her measure anything for a recipe. It was always a little of this and a pinch of that, well that is an entirely different post in itself. While I was strolling through Pinterest I came across a recipe that just fit and I am not really sure why, but it just spoke to me. It was one that had minimal ingredients and simple straight forward instructions to follow.
Wishing you luck of the Irish!!!
I have to admit St. Patrick’s Day is a little lower on our list of holidays to celebrate. Even though we are of Dutch-Irish decent. My children are very random sometimes and they will just bring things up out of the blue. Keep in mind that my children are not 7 and 4 years old, they are 16 and 13. They came to me over the weekend and explained that since St. Patrick’s Day was coming up they needed a special treat. While trying to think of something I had on hand and relatively simple…..I came up with this quick treat for my Leprechauns.
There are recipes we all remember from our childhood whether they were made by our moms or the warm toasty kitchen of our grandmother’s house.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I stumbled across some great vintage cookbooks that have some familiar recipes. While thumbing through these great little gems, it occurred to me there were so many recipes that were not familiar. Something else that I noticed were the ingredients. It seems that years ago many of the recipes had minimal ingredients that were readily available and did not have complicated instructions.
Easy Oatmeal Cake
There are recipes we all remember from our childhood whether they were made by our moms or the warm toasty kitchen of our grandmother’s house. Many homes had a few staples on hand and oatmeal was one of them.

I really love to cook and everything that is incorporated into it no matter what it is such as recipes, utensils, cook books, linens, etc.
In my adventures to support my vintage and antique addiction, I have come across some great kitchen things for the kitchen. I love to stumble upon great vintage recipe books and I feel that the home town recipe book are great. They are just filled with the best recipes from everyone from your next door neighbor to your grandmother (in my case it was my Nanny, she was the best cook in the world……in my opinion). [Read more…]
