Don’t you love the different seasons… and all the good food that accompanies them?

My grandson, Adam, was over the other day and he wanted to bake something. He flipped through my recipe book, Homemade with Love, and this Pumpkin Bread is what he decided on making.

He got out all the ingredients, followed the recipe to the tee and made us all a delicious fall treat. Grandad really loved it!

This pumpkin bread is wonderful for autumn breakfasts and can be made into muffins, too!

Chili

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail

This is one of our favorite recipes for a cold winter day . There’s not much prep time involved. I always keep the ingredients on hand and make it if I’m short on time. Rick loves to use the leftovers to take to work the next few days.

This chili is my husband’s favorite, and it’s quite original! I never had chili growing up. I’d only heard stories of chili con carne my dad had been served while he was in the Navy; being from the North, I thought he was saying “chili corn carne.”… hence the addition of corn in this chili recipe!

My husband loved it and the kids did, too, and that’s been a favorite main dish for 27 years now. I hope you will enjoy it, too.

This is a great cookie recipe for kids to make with you, too, because they can easily help with many of the steps…such as rolling the dough into balls, coating the balls with sugar or sprinkles, unwrapping the chocolate kisses, and also adding the kisses to the cookies.

So, gather your little ones in the kitchen and make some Christmas memories!

Here’s the recipe.

  • Ingredients

Easy and Moist Pork Barbecue

We recently had a party for our youngest child, Kasey, to celebrate her graduation and also earning her pilot’s license.

We had barbecue sandwiches as part of the menu and this is the recipe I used. It was great!

I have a friend who showed me this way of fixing it, which was new to me.

The end result is very moist and tender barbecue pork, and it just couldn’t be easier to make!

2 Ways to Make Homemade Applesauce

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail

This has been a great year for apples at our house.

We have 3 big apple trees. I can’t even remember what type they are- it’s been so many years since we planted them! But they are bit on the tart side, making them delicious for eating and making applesauce!

Some years they don’t do so well and some years, like this year, we get a bumper crop. We choose not to use pesticides on them. We’d probably get better yields if we did, but we don’t want the chemicals.

Last week, I canned 24 pints of applesauce!

Today we’re having pork barbecue for supper, so I made up a fresh batch for supper to go along with it. It’s cooking in the crock pot now.

So let me tell you how to make Applesauce, both ways- Canned and in the Crock pot:
