Sour Cream Banana Bread

Sour Cream Banana Bread

You read the title right.  Sour. Cream. Banana. Bread. To die! Confession: I’m not a banana lover.  If you see me eating one; I’m desperate or under duress.  I pretty much only eat them during training season for long runs, and only if they’re a bit on the green side and not covered with spots.  […]

Funeral Food: Streusel Coffee Cake

Streusel Coffee Cake

Streusel Coffee Cake is a recipe that feeds a crowd.  Around these parts we call these dishes “funeral food.” You know what I mean. Funeral food is food you make to feed a crowd that doesn’t need much tending; it’s the kind of dish you put out on a buffet table and forget about. Comfort […]

Scones, Cinnamon Roll Style

I’m always on the hunt for a delicious breakfast idea. Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls are in the top 10.  Banana Bread Pancakes would hit the spot.  Pumpkin-Streusel Cinnamon Buns are always yummy, but I’m pumpkined out.  I think it’s time for something new.  Something different.  Something easy. I think I found a contender. Hello luva: […]

Mrs. Tucker loves a good muffin, don’t you?  When I was first married, and a beginning cook/baker, I made these Coffee Cake Muffins for special occasions, like birthdays and Christmas morning.  Anyone who was lucky enough to be a recipient, raved.

Sweet Orange Rolls

Freshly squeezed orange juice imparts a light flavoring.  You could add an orange extract to bump up […]

I present Blueberry Muffins, double-dipped with donut glaze.     The glaze is thin and subtle, but it […]

Banana Bread Pancakes

banana-bread-pancakes-3

Pancake = Pan-CAKES = cakes!  That’s where my mind goes whenever I see the word pancakes. Yet, when I saw the recipe for banana in a pancake, I was dubious.  Its only saving grace was that the word “bread” followed. Confession time: I’m not a banana fan, yet I adore a moist dense banana bread. […]

Pumpkin-Cinnamon Streusel Buns

Every August, when it’s blazing hot outside in Texas (today: 108° feels like 113°), I start thinking about holiday cooking. What to have, what to try, what to tweak. I’ve had this recipe on my mind for a few weeks now and just as it started feeling like the innards of an oven outside, I […]
