Zucchini Pineapple Coconut Muffins and Bread

Well here we go again…another banner year for zucchinis. There is always that question of what to do with so many of them (see past posts). I always make zucchini breads to freeze. This year I thought of adding some pineapple and coconut to one of my favorite bread recipes. The end result was very [...]

Mini Moist Corn Muffins

Here are some great little corn muffins that are beyond simple to make. I usually make most of my baked goods from scratch (half the time you scratch your head wondering what the hell am I doing when there are very good mixes out there that will accomplish the same result).  However, I  recently cooked [...]

CookWomanFood is Back at It!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on my site due to some extraordinary jerk that decided to hack my site along with my son’s CookManFood. What a shame that people have nothing better to do than go out and destroy what others have done. It takes a lot of time [...]

Maple Bacon Sausage Muffins

This recipe is dedicated to CookManFood as it is right up their alley. I recently read a post by Todd on Facebook that was asking for a muffin recipe that had bacon and sausage. I’ve gone one better and used maple syrup also. Living in the northeast, this is maple syrup weather and it is [...]

Diet Friendly Pumpkin Spice Cake

There are some of us that need to pay attention to what we eat most of the time lest we blow up like an elephant overnight! I, unfortunately, am one of those people. Tomorrow we are having yet another buffet at school, though this time it is a healthy buffet. Supposedly eating from this buffet [...]

Friendship Cake, the Gift that Keeps Giving

We recently had our annual Christmas Buffet. Always delicious, always too much food. One of the desserts that is post worthy, (and let me tell you there will be others), was the Friendship Spice Cake. This was very moist and delicious, had a hint of spice, and would also make a great breakfast. Lenore, the [...]

Anadama Bread for the Holidays

Here is a great Thanksgiving bread that originated in New England. Anadama. Mmmm. Nice and moist and since Thanksgiving began in New England what other bread could be more appropriate?  The story behind the bread is quite interesting. It seems that a fisherman’s wife named Anna, kept serving her husband nothing but cornmeal and molasses [...]

Cranberry Crumble Coffee Cake

This is one of those recipes that is perfect for Thanksgiving but also quite delish for anytime. It is not too tedious to make but it is well worth every little bit of effort put into it. Cranberry Crumble Coffee Cake 1/2 cup butter 3/4 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 cups unbleached flour 1 tsp. [...]

Pumpkin Streusel Bread

Pumpkin is a great vegetable. It can be used for a variety of meals. A really nice breakfast or treat is pumpkin bread. I do love it served with a brisk cup of tea. I love the aroma of the bread while it bakes. This recipe is easy and only needs 2 bowls. Only 1, [...]

Pumpkin Bread Extraordinaire

Ah fall. Scarecrows in the yard, goblins on the doorstep, and pumpkin bread on the table. What’s not to love? One of my favorite fall foods is pumpkin anything, especially bread. I have been making this bread for over 30 years and it has never, ever failed to please. It has a nice spice mix [...]
