Blueberry-Orange Bread

I posted a recipe for some Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins last week, and I have another blueberry recipe for you this week—Blueberry-Orange Bread! This recipes makes a good-size 9×5″ loaf, has a subtle orange flavor and aroma, and is brimming with lots of blueberries! The fresh blueberries and yogurt give this quick bread a nice moist texture, and the orange juice, orange zest, and orange extract give it a delicious citrus flavor. Continue reading

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins @ NancyCI’m looking forward to blueberry season when I can pick my own berries! Until then, I have to settle for buying them at the store. I prefer using fresh blueberries when I bake, but the two markets I went to were totally out of them! So I had to use frozen, but this muffin recipe works well with either fresh or frozen berries.

Are you a fan of Chicken & Stuffing? I made it for the first time a few weeks ago. If you’ve ever been intimidated by the thought of making Chicken & Stuffing, I can assure you that this recipe is really super easy and very delicious too! And it doesn’t take long to make if you use pre-cooked chicken. Continue reading

Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

I don’t think I ever would have made these Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats if it hadn’t been for Marijo. One day at work I went by her desk and she had three bags of marshmallows sitting on one side of her desk area. “What are you going to do with those?” I asked. “Someone had extra marshmallows and gave me some,” she said. “I’ll probably give them to my grandkids. Do you want a bag?” Continue reading

A Sweet Springtime Treat

A Sweet Springtime Treat @ NancyC

I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!

It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂

Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?
