Apple Cinnamon Loaf

January 20, 2012

Loaf…….my new favorite word. Is this a cake? A bread? I don’t know… a mix of both? But because I am obsessed with my new loaf pan, I will just call it loaf. I would say it is a mix of a bread and a cake, but the flavor is what matters. I warned you that there would be plenty of loafs blogged, and this is the first of those many. If you have any suggestions, let me know. :)

Not a fan of pumpkin pie? Me neither. The texture of pumpkin pie freaks me out.. :/ However the texture of these cupcakes are nothing like pumpkin pie. They’re everything you would expect, light, fluffy and perfectly moist. I first made this recipe about a year ago for Halloween and Thanksgiving and they were a hit with my family (24 Hour Fitness family included.) I decided I would post these so you can try them out and include them for your Holiday festivities.

Mama Thornton’s Peach Pie

September 3, 2011

Before my niece Olivia Sue started 1st grade, she came over to stay the night with me (her cool aunt) and we felt the need to bake…. :) We had some lovely fresh peaches from the market and some leftover lemons from my Lemon Burst Cookies so we decided to not only make one dessert, but two! Olivia’s mom, Natasha, is pretty much the pie maker in the family. My Granny passed down all of her recipes down to her but…. :) I tasted a slice of her peach pie last weekend and decided it was time to make my own…with Olivia’s help of course.

One of my very favorite things to do is go to the Farmer’s Market! I never get to go to  my favorite one at PSU because I work so I decided on Wednesday to go to  my other favorite downtown. So I went and it was so nice, sampled some cheese, got a ton of cherries, a few pints of strawberries, some bread from the Pearl Bakery, etc.. After eating a bunch of the strawberries on the walk home I was already plotting what will come from them next.

Snickerdoodles

May 12, 2011

I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t even like Snickerdoodles. My mom (Shirl the Pearl) made them while I was a kid and of course I ate them, but I would have never asked for them over any others. A few years ago when Fabian came to visit me during Christmas break he had the chance to try them and really liked them.

Looking at the Martha Stewart Cookie Book I started to rethink my harsh judgment against them. What drew me to the recipe specifically was the amount of ingredients and the fact that all of them are always in my kitchen! No last minute run to the store to grab whatever is missing, it’s stuff I already have! Yay! :)
