The Best Apple Cake!

posted by Andrea | 02/13/2012 | 14 comments

It’s honestly the BEST apple cake/bread I’ve ever made! It tasted absolutely delicious plain {for breakfast} and with a dollop of whipped cream {for dessert}! And even though I cut out some of the fat by replacing half the oil with my homemade applesauce, this cake was still SO moist and very dense with a grand total of FIVE chopped up apples!

I think this might be my new “go-to” recipe for apples… I only wish I didn’t have to wait until next Fall to have a great selection of fresh Michigan apples!

Make Your Own Beer Bread from Scratch

posted by Andrea | 10/5/2011 | 19 comments

I remember the first time I attended a Tastefully Simple party and tasted their beer bread. It was so delicious that I knew I had to buy some. However, I quickly realized that a $5.49 price tag might not be worth it for one loaf of bread — especially at the rate we plowed through it!

So my frugal self decided to look for a beer bread recipe that I could make myself — and I’ve never looked back since!

English Muffin Bread & Egg Sandwiches

posted by Andrea | 09/10/2011 | 27 comments

Dave and I love a good, hot, crispy English Muffin for breakfast; however, I refuse to buy them from the store because they rarely go on sale, and the regular price can be over $3.50 for 6 lousy {preservative filled} English Muffins.

Thankfully, my mother-in-law shared her recipe for English Muffin Bread with me and for the last few years, it has been our much tastier, much healthier, and much cheaper alternative to store bought English Muffins.

Simple, Delicious Homemade Bread

posted by Andrea | 03/24/2011 | 41 comments

I bet you never thought the words “simple” and “homemade bread” would go together in the same sentence. I didn’t think so either, until now… For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been making ALL our bread and rolls — from scratch. This was something I always wanted to do, but never thought I would have the time to actually do it. I’m mean, who has hours and hours to mix bread dough, let it rise, bake it, and then clean […]

Apple Zucchini Bread

I LOVE zucchini bread! And if you’ve never had zucchini bread, let me assure you — it does NOT taste like zucchini! It basically tastes like cinnamon — and whatever other flavors you add to it. So, you can image how delicious Apple Zucchini Bread tastes, since it’s basically Apple Cinnamon Bread…YUM! I make different varieties of zucchini bread all year long, and I ALWAYS use zucchini from our garden! Yup, even in the middle of winter, I am able to […]
