When I shared Gram’s recipe for Corn Fritters with you the other day, I mentioned how this time of year is when I seem to miss her most.  Spending time in the kitchen with her was something I always loved.

These Old Fashioned Soft Molasses Drop Cookies are topped with a maple glaze and a bit of walnut.

I’m fortunate to have many of my favorite recipes that were hers on recipe cards in her own handwriting.  For many years she always tucked one or two into my stocking at Christmas so I could add them to my collection. Continue reading »

This time of year I always seem to crave my grandmother’s cooking a little more than any other.  Fall is when we were working on the farm and she always made sure the kitchen was full of anything and everything you could possibly want to eat.

Best-ever corn fritters recipe from my Gram's kitchen to yours. They're extra yummy served with a little maple syrup for drizzling.

Fall is also the gateway to holiday cooking and baking.  That meant warm, hearty dinners and appetizers, cookies and brownies, fudge and donuts. Continue reading »

Savory apple recipes, sweet apple recipes.  No matter which is your favorite the time of year for all things apples is here!  I remember picking apples off my parents’ apple tree as I drove by with the lawn mower.  A great reward for a little manual labor.
