    Pizzelles

    Some of y’all may not know what Pizzelles are but let me assure you, they are delicious! Pizzelles are an Italian cookie that can be found now days in grocery stores. For me, they are not Pizzelles unless they are homemade. The most popular flavor is Anise, however, that is not a flavor that my family and I enjoy so we make Vanilla and Chocolate. These cookies are also used to make cannoli shells in many families. Now these do require a special piece of equipment called a Pizzelle Iron.  The Cucina Pro Pizzelle Baker is my favorite. These cookies are very simple to make. I will tell you straight…

    Coca Cola Cake

    Coca Cola Cake This cake is the moistest cake we have ever had and my family LOVED it!!! Many people have had this cake at Cracker Barrel and have been trying to come up with the recipe.

(Watch for that recipe coming up as well) I found this recipe originally on The Country Cook . Be sure to check out their blog, lots of great recipes over there. I have tweaked a couple of things but the basics are the same. I will say that the icing…

    Stained Glass Candy

    Stained Glass Candy was always a tradition when I was growing up. To me, it always looked like the big stained glass windows in Church. You can make this any flavor or color you want, I just happen to make 2 batches. One batch is Cinnamon and colored red and the other is Wintergreen which is colored green. I actually had to ask all of my family this year to see if they wanted Peppermint or Wintergreen, it was a resounding vote for the Wintergreen. This recipe is so very simple. You will only need a couple of specialized things which are easily found. The first is a large non-stick…

    Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    There are some foods that remind us of our childhood, this Sour Cream Coffee Cake is one of those foods. My Mama used to make this every month or so. When I would come home from school and inhale that beautiful smell, I knew we must be having company over or we were celebrating something. This really is such a simple coffee cake but I think because it was done in a beautiful bundt pan, it seemed more difficult than it actually was and of course I’m sure that is why I thought it was only for special occasions when I was younger. Well y’all, I’m here to show you…
