Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin Bread

Fall is my favorite time to cook, and one of the traditional/seasonal treats I like to make is pumpkin bread.  I found a great recipe that makes either two regular loaves or one loaf and four minis.  It makes enough that we can eat one and freeze one for later.  Even though it is pumpkin […]

Back-to-School Cookies

Peanut butter cookies

Affiliate link included in post. When I was growing up, store-bought cookies were always a treat (unless they were generic Fig Newtons).  My mom ran a “from scratch” kitchen, and pretty much everything was home-made.  When autumn rolled around, and it was time for us to return to school, she baked up batches of peanut […]


Blueberry Pie Recipe


My garden club has a members only picnic every August, and I always take a homemade pie.  Normally, I take my coconut pie (here) with the meringue topping.  However, meringue doesn’t do too well in high humidity, and last Sunday when the picnic took place, the air was heavy with moisture.  Since we are in […]


Homemade Peach Jam

Peach Jam

After having some extra peaches last week after this post, I decided it would be fun to make homemade peach jam for the first time.
