Ham and beans is such a simple dish, and a good comfort food. It’s my husband’s favorite way to finish up a ham, since it uses the ham bone and pieces. He loves to spice up the soup with his favorite hot sauce, I like it how it is. This easy Ham and Beans recipe is a new years tradition at our house, a little superstition to ring in good luck for the new year. It must be a southern thing.
This Norwegian Apple Cake recipe has been the in family cookbook for many years, but I’d never tried it. We were down visiting Grandma’s (Mom) and she made this delicious, moist, apple goodness cake. I asked where she got the recipe and low and behold, I have the recipe too! I guess sometimes we get comfortable with the recipes that we know we like. [Read more…] about Norwegian Apple Cake Recipe

Mardi Gras is such a fun tradition and celebration in Louisiana (and other places). No Mardi Gras party is complete without a delicious king cake. My in-laws have their favorite bakeries to get a king cake. However since we are in Utah, they don’t sell them so we make our own. Homemade king cake is so good. King Cake is basically a sweet roll that is cooked in a ring shape. For this king cake, I used my favorite sweet bread recipe – cardamom bread and filled it with gooey goodness. Normally there is a baby, but I already know that I’m making it each year, so I don’t bother. There is a lot of tradition with the king cake that you can check out on wiki.

I had been searching for a great wheat bread recipe for a long time. I tried a lot of recipes, and most were too dry to eat. I came across the Honey Wheat Bread II on allrecipes.com and with a few tweaks, it is by far my favorite wheat bread. This bread has never failed me. I love the density, flavor and texture. I know that you’ll enjoy it too. Note: I’m at about 4,000 ft elevation, if you are at a lower elevation you may require less flour. [Read more…] about Delicious Honey Wheat Bread Recipe
