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 […]

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 […]

Ranger Cookies

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 […]

Candy Cane Cookies

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. […]

Strawberry Chiffon

We began the week with a Strawberry Pie and I thought we would end with one as well.  This recipe is from Nany’s kitchen as so many this week have been.  What can I say?  I honestly believe my grandmother is the best.  Period.  End of discussion. Ingredients: 1 small package strawberry gelatin 1 c. […]
