Sunflower Brittle with bonus Peanut Brittle recipe

    Apologies for it being so long but I just have not had any good ideas for recipes and then my oven went out. Also, I don’t get paid for this I just do it for fun so forgive the long hiatus. This recipe is an adaptation of one I use every year from…

Cider Pancakes with Apple Topping

I owe my cooking skills to my mom. Don’t get me wrong, some of cooking is natural talent and the ability to understand what items taste good together but she taught me how to cook and appreciate food. She and my aunt took me to all kinds of restaurants and this was back when we…
