a hint

I just received this bag from my mother in law, who is moving.  I’m thinking it is a hint, what about you?  😀  I’ve never seen a 5-lb bag of baking cocoa!  I laughed when I saw this and this was (…read more and get the recipe)

Marionberry Oat Bars

July 21st, 2008

Marionberry Oat Bars

Apparently, over at Stahlbush, it is Marionberry harvest season.  I can tell because Rachel keeps bringing home Marionberries!  Today I felt like dessert so I turned up the oven and got out the mixing bowls.  Rachel found this really cool Oregon berry website with some great recipes.  The savory ones look particulary interesting and I think we’ll be trying them soon!  Today’s dessert used their Marionberry oat bar recipe.  These things smell so good!  Here’s what I did: (…read more and get the recipe)

Angel Food Cake – Loaf Pan Experiment

July 8th, 2008

The Finished Cakes

I would like to welcome Mike Brindley, a co-worker and fellow food-lover.  He let me try some of this angel food cake and I have to say it was quite fluffy and delicious!  I hope you enjoy it! — Keith

Blueberry & Strawberry Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

I had to come up with something to celebrate the holiday with and for some reason around the 4th of July my mouth waters for every cake I see with whole blueberries and strawberries on top.  This cupcake recipe was my answer!  I used the Strawberry cupcake recipe from last week and simply reduced the amount of strawberries and added whole blueberries to the batter.  Then to make it have all the red, white and blue flair I used whipped cream, whole blueberries and strawberries to top it off.  The result is a festive, decadent, delight that we got to share with some friends the other night.  Here’s what I did: (…read more and get the recipe)

Tom’s “No Brainer” Ribs

July 2nd, 2008

Grandma and Tom’s Spread plus No Brainer Ribs - MakingBananaPancakes.com

I’m still imagining myself sitting at Grandma’s table trying to eat these ribs before the meat fell off the bone.  They were the best ribs I’ve ever had.  No, I’ve never had ribs from the south, so maybe I’ve never officially had “ribs” — but these were GOOD!  They were juicy, tender, and like I said, the meat fell off the bone!
