Lazy Daisy cake

Ah, the Lazy Daisy Cake…It sounds like spring, doesn’t it? This is an older recipe, though, I don’t know its origins. I do know that it is something my grandmother made from time to time. Some versions of this make for a dry cake, but this is moist and wonderful. It is very simple and from start to finish it only takes one hour to make the Lazy Daisy Cake. It will be a nice treat for your family. Mine enjoyed it very much. Ingredients  2 large eggs 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup All-Purpose Flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup milkRead More →

Crackers I wish I would have known how delicious and easy it was to whip up a batch of crackers. They are a beautiful addition to a cheese plate or great even as a snack for the children. Honestly, one batch doesn’t last more than a day in our house– family of four so keep that in mind for parties and gatherings. It’s simple, really. Some flour, sea salt, sugar, dry or fresh rosemary, olive or vegetable oil, and water. It takes less than 30 minutes to make.    Recipe 1 and ½ cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt 1 teaspoon sugarRead More →
