Classic Blueberry Cake – Go Ahead. Have Some Coffee.

Granny’s summery blueberry cake recipe is short and sweet. Prep time is short. And the cake itself is sweet. It is easy to make and even easier to eat. I would serve it for brunch with coffee, or for dessert topped with whipped cream and […]

Chocolate Strawberry Tart – Because Guilt is Always in Season

Chocolate Strawberry Tart – Because Guilt is Always in Season

Ambrosia-Fit for the Gods and Your Dinner Table

Ambrosia-Fit for the Gods and Your Dinner Table

The first time I had Ambrosia salad was at an all-you-can-eat buffet with Granny. It was probably an early bird special kind of buffet. And, I’m wondering why people make jokes about these early bird buffets. All the food you want, including dessert, before 6 […]
