Beginning now we will start using a new link system, Inlinkz that will help us and you, our readers, to be featured each week. We will then choose one recipe from those links to feature the blogger and recipe in depth each month.
We love comments and would love to hear more from our readers. Are we meeting your needs so to speak? Talk to us and let us know what you think.
Each new week will begin on Sunday and the Inlinkz will stay open until the following Saturday night. Martha has been trying it over at Color Carnival and we think it will be a great new tool to feature your recipes.
2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. dark Karo syrup
1 stick butter (melted)
2 eggs (beaten)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pie shell
Mix all ingredients and pour into uncooked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
For all of your information, this Friday feature is changing its name and will be henceforth known as “Lovin’ from the Oven.”
Now for the important part, what wonderful oatmeal dishes do you have to share?
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal (regular or quick)
3 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted
In a microwave safe bowl, heat the water to boiling in the microwave. Add the oatmeal and let sit. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the moistened oatmeal. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients and add to the mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Pour batter into a greased 9 X 9 pan and bake 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
For the topping, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well. Spread evenly over the hot cake Broil about 4 inches from the heat 1-2 minutes or until the topping is bubbly. (I just sat down on the floor in front of the window and watched so it didn’t burn and it didn’t take very long before the entire top was a mass of bubbles).
Cool the cake in the pan.
I thought I’d shake things up a little and offer you all a challenge. The holidays are over, the winter doldrums are about to descend. Why not join me in a little cooking/baking adventure?
During the month of January, I’d like you to think of a recipe using a certain ingredient that will be mentioned a few sentences from here. It can be one of your tried and true recipes, it can be a brand spanking new recipe that you make up, it can be a recipe that you have had sitting in your list of “I want to try that.” The only thing I ask is that you actually make it, write up a post about it and include a picture or two. In “What Did You Bake Today” on January 29, I’d like you to link up your recipe.
I will randomly pick one of the linker-uppers and will feature them the following week here and on my personal blog.
Now, for the mystery ingredient…..seeing it’s cold outside….and not much is really in season….it’s
