Tink, tink, tink.  I know that we are headed towards Summer when I wake up early to make coffee and hear the chirping of birds outside my kitchen window.  Only the birds don’t  all go tweet tweet, we always have a few loud ones that go tink, tink, tink which is kind of weird and […]

Irish Soda Bread with Muesli

Irish Soda Bread with Muesli / Patty's Food

I’m not sure which came first-Irish Soda Bread with Muesli or  Three Fruit Marmalade- but they belong together and are definitely a match made in heaven.  Every year when Saint Patrick’s Day rolls around I’m usually good for baking a loaf or two of soda bread, but this year I did a little experimenting and […]

A belated Happy New Year to everyone!  January is the month for lists, lots and lots of lists to start planning in the new year.  I’m so busy this month but I’m happily planning a tea party for my granddaughter Gracie’s birthday coming up in February.  I’m thinking of a mother daughter tea with hats, […]

Buttermilk Pie with Pecan Crust / Patty's Food

I baked my first buttermilk pie from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook.  I’ve always been curious to bake a buttermilk pie and not having a family recipe or tradition of buttermilk pie baking, I turned to this wonderful heirloom dessert cookbook for a delicious recipe.  Buttermilk pie has a unique flavor and the aroma […]

Spiced Whole Grain Ginger Cookies ~it’s a #GrainHoliday with Hodgson Mill~

Spiced Whole Grain Molasses Ginger Cookies / Patty's Food

The nice people at Hodgson Mill sent me a box with an assortment of their products including a bag of white whole wheat flour that they asked me to use in a recipe of my choice.  I admit it-I’m not as comfortable baking with whole grains, but I took the plunge this week and baked […]

Tarragon Lime Cookies with White Chocolate Lime Frosting

Tarragon Lime Cookies / Patty's Food

  I like cookies that are easy to make, fun to serve and pack a lot of flavor, especially the flavors of tarragon, lime and white chocolate.  December is the month for home baked cookies, for the most part cookies baked with the Christmas holidays and sharing with friends and family firmly in mind.  My […]
