Apple Cake🍎
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.

Annie’s Crumb Cake

First of all, you’re welcome for this one! I’m a coffee lover and this is one of those cakes that pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee. This recipe is from my mother-in-law. She worked in a bank 35 years ago. She had a customer(I assume that is Annie), that owned a yarn shop…

Pretzel Bark

I had some items in the pantry and was itching to make a quick holiday treat. I had vanilla flavored almond bark and thought what is easier than that? Really nothing. It’s so fun and such a nice treat to give away around the holidays. We made it with some hot cocoa and enjoyed it on our visit to a holiday light show.

Aunt June’s Cream Cheese Cookies

My Aunt June has been making these cream cheese cookies for years. She is a pro. They are so delicious and the perfect size that you can just keep popping them in your mouth! I guess that’s really not a good thing, but it really is!

Cheesecake Bites

This is the perfect dessert to make for that special someone in your life. They will appreciate it and your love will shine through. I got this recipe from my mom’s recipe book. She used to make these when she entertained. I loved them as a kid and I love them now. This is one of those simple recipes that looks like you spent hours preparing. 

“Crowd Pleasing” Rice Pudding

I love recipes from years ago that use such simple ingredients. I love to follow the recipes and think about the women who were making it back then. So much has changed, but so little has changed.

Colonial Pumpkin Pie

Oh man. This colonial pumpkin pie was rich and delicious. You must put this on your menu for Thanksgiving Day. I did happen to whip up some homemade cinnamon whipped cream and spread it all over the top of the pie. That is a must as well!
