Lemon Blueberry Squash Bread

Lemon Blueberry Squash Bread , fresh lemon juice, and zest, luscious blueberries combined with shredded yellow squash are the perfect ingredients for a summer quick bread. Have you ever heard of yellow squash in a quick bread recipe?  I was first introduced to it last summer by my daughter.  I love to bake with zucchini in bread but never had made any with yellow summer squash.

Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts {Yellow Butter Cake Mix + Strawberry Greek Yogurt = Strawberry Cake Doughnuts!}

Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts , easy, quick cake doughnuts you whole family will love.  Yes, using a cake mix,  Greek yogurt and diced strawberries to make these little breakfast jewels. The Summer heat is fast approaching us.  We have already started having 90 degree temperatures.  

Glazed Strawberry Bread

Glazed Strawberry Bread  will get you in the mood for Spring.  It is full of fresh strawberries and covered with a simple glaze. STRAWBERRY QUICK BREAD Strawberry bread tastes like spring in a quick bread.  It is so tender, moist, and full of strawberry goodness.  The recipe is easy and quick, with no mixer needed. We love this bread for breakfast, but who says you can't have it for dessert with a dollop of whipped cream and some chunky strawberry sauce?  I can't wait for Spring to arrive in East Texas! Unlike when I was growing up, fresh fruit is in the grocery stores all year around, but one thing hasn't changed: seasonal fruit always has a better price because it is plentiful.   Like apples in the Fall are cheaper,  peaches, watermelons and cantaloupes in the summer, and all kinds of berries in the spring and early summer.   I love that Strawberries are beginning to make a big appearance here in the grocery stores, which means the prices will start to go down.

Old School Fried Biscuits {aka Camp Biscuits at our house!}

Camp Biscuits  have been around my house ever since I was a little girl, then I started making them for my children on Saturday morning.  We make them here at the house, when we are camping, and at the deer lease.    These make delicious and quick beignets! Just cut them in half, fry them, and dust with powdered sugar. Another great idea is when you serve Chinese, finish out your meal with some of these  Fried Biscuits  rolled in sugar only .  And you will feel as though you are at your favorite Chinese restaurants.

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls , easy homemade cinnamon rolls stuffed with grated fresh apples, cinnamon, and sugar and topped with a caramel icing.  Fall just got a lot sweeter!   There is nothing better! Starting your morning off with a cup of coffee and homemade cinnamon rolls will, sure enough, get your fall morning off to a fabulous day!

Cream Cheese Biscuits

Cream Cheese Biscuits, fluffy and tender biscuits Southerners love to make.  We love them with honey, syrup, jelly, and even a piece of country ham nestled in for a quick sandwich treat.  Only three ingredients, self-rising flour, butter, and the star of the recipe–– cream cheese! Who would have thought a cookbook solely about biscuits would grab such an interest in me.  Nathalie Depree's Southern Biscuits cookbook did just that.   You can find every biscuit imaginable, from the traditional ones all the way to the outlandish ones.  She goes into great detail on all the ins and outs of making the perfect biscuit.   I have always been a big fan of her in her television days on PBS in the '80s, not to mention all of her many cookbooks.  You could say she is my all time favorite Southern cook.

Crusty Italian Bread {C-r-a-z-y Easy To Make}

Crusty Italian Bread is an easy homemade bread recipe made with two main ingredients, flour and yeast.  The rest is salt and water.  It has the perfect crust, crunchy and slightly chewiness.  And the inside is dreamy soft, and delightful!  All you want in a loaf of crusty bread.

Apple Walnut Zucchini Bread

Quick Bread is one of the first things that I learned to make in my first year of Home Economics.  Now you can tell how old I am. (he he)   I have to say, Home Economics was always my favorite class in my high school years, and interestingly enough, since I was in high school, that class has undergone numerous name and status changes.  Like the cooking part---the class I took is now totally separate and called Culinary Arts Class.  Historically, the class was mostly women, but with the serge in the culinary field, that has changed.  Quick Bread is a term used in making a bread batter that is made rather quickly using a leavening agent other than yeast.  Zucchini bread falls in that category. I am a big fan of fresh apple cake .  After I saw the recipe for Zucchini Bread over at Joy of Bak ing and she added an apple to her recipe, I decided to add grated apple to my recipe too.  This Apple Walnut Zucchini Bread reminds me a lot of Carrot Bread, but without the

Brown Sugar Banana Bread made with Sugar Substitute

Brown Sugar Banana Bread, rich caramel flavor provided by the addition of brown sugar totally compliments the bananas in the banana bread recipe. Are you a fan of Banana Bread so much so that you find yourself craving it and wishing you could make it with fewer calories?  That is how it is with me, so I decided to make one using  the recipe I make most of the time and substituting a Brown Sugar Substitute in place of the sugar.

Homemade Monkey Bread {BHG Golden Bubble Ring}

There are no surprises when it comes to making the nostalgic and all time favorite  Homemade Monkey Bread .  A dough made from scratch, bite size pieces rolled in cinnamon sugar and baked in a caramel sauce.  Amazing! I first started making Homemade Monkey Bread from scratch in the early 70's using the number one cookbook for newlyweds, the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook , printed in 1971.

Three Cheese French Bread

Three Cheese French Bread,  family favorite!  Sometimes a meal just seem lonely without some gooey crunchy french bread. There are several methods of making french bread into this wonderful bread frenzy. I usually use what I have on hand. Sometimes I just like a buttery garlic spread, but what I like most is to put this wonderful cheese mixture that I use in my Homemade Cheddar and Greyer Bread .

Frijole Bites aka {Homemade Mini Kolaches}

South of the Border Bites , a pastry that holds a spoonful of shredded cheese, pinto beans, and diced jalapenos.  Wrap up the mixture in a ball and lay upside down in a dish.  Brush with butter and bake.  Perfect bitesize bite!   The recipe for these South of the Border Bites aka "Kolaches" came about when I only used half of the dough from my Heavenly Cinnamon Rolls that I made on Saturday.

Buttery Fresh Herb Tea Biscuits

Little Fresh Herb Tea Biscuits,   a sweet fluffy biscuit dipped in buttery fresh minced herbs, a perfect accompaniment to stews and soups or brunch with a bit of ham in between them. We enjoyed these  Little Fresh Herb Tea Biscuits  with a bowl of   Beef Stew with Butternut Squash and Fennel .

Coconut Banana Bread

I could make Coconut Banana Bread every day.  It has become one of my personal favorites.  I think it is the combination of the coconut, bananas, and butter that makes it so moist and yummy. Any Banana Bread recipe I come across, I am going to jump on it. That is exactly what happened with this recipe. A sweet friend of mine gave me a recipe for banana bread that does not call for any milk, sour cream, yogurt, etc. I have never seen a recipe that didn't call for some sort of dairy product. I couldn't wait to try it, and I am here to tell you that this is the moistest Banana Bread ever.

Cornbread and a Cold Glass of Milk

Baked Cornbread,  cut a slice and pour cold milk over it in a glass.  In the South this is poor mans food but no one ever knew it because it taste like your eating like a king! When I came into the Little family, I was used to eating Southern Buttermilk Cornbread . Needless to say the longer I was in the family, the more I began to have a taste for sweet cornbread. Traditionally, sweet cornbread contains equal portions of flour and yellow cornmeal with a liberal amount of sugar.  There is one thing that has not changed since I came into the family and that is my affection for a late night snack of a cold glass of Milk and Cornbread.
