Now I love technology as well as the rest… but sometimes this good ole standby saves the day!
It’s a cold and rainy day here in South Carolina. Jim and I have armed ourselves with plenty of DVD movies… a few comedies, some love stories and a few dramas.
We have left over, Shrimp Etoufee, from last night’s dinner ( Jim treated me to this delectable meal... Sometimes I just have to let him in my kitchen).
We have snacks… the only thing missing is the sweets!
I go to my favorite food site!
Look up coffee cake… after perusing through numerous recipes… I didn’t find a simple recipe that I could whip up, like my Mom used to!
I finally give up and head to my bookshelf of recipe books… and there it was… My trusty Betty Crocker!
This was a wedding gift from my then husbands grandmother… it was actually hers!
She marked recipes in it that was her favorites; the pages are tattered and covered with Kitchen Love!
I have used this cookbook for Thirty years! The spine is completely gone, but the old girl is still coming through for me!
Twenty five minutes later and voila… we have coffee cake!
This filled in the last necessary piece of our do nothing day!
See ya later got a movie or two to watch!!!
