Nany’s Day

Today is Nany’s birthday.  If she had the internet and read this post, I would be in big trouble for sharing the fact that today is her birthday as Nany is a humble, private lady and would prefer none of the ‘hoopla’ that goes along with ones birthday.  I can’t think of a better way […]

Granulated Sugar Frosting

Granulated Sugar Frosting

Ranger Cookies

Nany makes more kinds of cookies than I can possibly count.  Christmas at Nany’s means an immediate weight gain of 5-7 lbs.  We sit and sip a hot cup of tea and share a plate of her delicious cookies while laughing and chatting until hours have passed.  It is my favorite time with her.  She […]

Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread

I over bought the bananas again. Why is it that I cannot find the balance? Each week either too few or too many! I used Nany’s recipe today and made a very delicious tasting and looking loaf of banana nut bread. Ingredients: 3 large or 4 small bananas, creamed 1/2 c. canola oil 1 c. […]

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

I am excited about sharing some of my favorite family recipes that are centered around the apple.  Nany makes the best apple dumplings ever.  I am not kidding as I have tried many around the country and the world and they never come close to hers.  I will share that recipe shortly but today we […]
