Blueberry Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler

Yes, making blueberry cobbler out of season is a bit odd for me to recommend.  I try to utilize fresh ingredients where and when I can so blueberries in the fall is unusual.  Why this post is the exception to the rule is 1) I love blueberries and 2) I froze many quarts of blueberries […]

Granulated Sugar Frosting

Granulated Sugar Frosting

A few years ago, Nany and I were shopping at a local thrift store and I found this pan.  It was marked with Duncan Hines and Ekco so I turned to Nan and asked if she had ever seen this pan before.  She explained (because Nany Knows) that it was a pan given to customers […]
