#10 Skillet Cookies
|My mother made Skillet Cookies and I hadn't had them in years. The secret ingredient is dates. As the name suggests they are not baked, but a syrup is cooked in a skillet and poured over crisp rice cereal.
|Moist and delicious, they go together quickly for a tasty snack. This recipe was one used to win purple ribbons at the 4-H Fair. But there is a little more to the story. . .
|Packed full of cheeses and accented with roasted peppers, this recipe works great for a week-night supper or a special breakfast. I often bring it to our monthly card parties.
#7 Sourdough Blueberry Buckle Coffeecake
#6 Red Pepper Honey Jam
|Blueberries make a delicious coffeecake.
|I made this recipe for the first time this year and it was a definite keeper. I don't think you can buy this at the grocery store.
#5 Sourdough Rhubarb Coffeecake
|Yes, it was a year for sourdough recipes. We have this in the spring during the brief rhubarb harvest.
|Most homemade banana bread is good, but sourdough banana bread is superb!
#3 Sourdough Chocolate Zucchini Cake
|The chocolate chip topping is better than frosting--a perfect summertime treat!
|This traditional Low German dish is always on our menu at Christmastime.
Top recipe this year was Sourdough Zucchini Bread. Perhaps it was my lovely models. I think of Zucchini Bread as a summertime only treat but interest has continued throughout the year. Yum! Can't wait till next summer to make it again!
One of my goals for 2014 is to work on my food photography. A new camera and book may help. May I wish each of you a blessed New Year?
