 I am looking for a recipe for a tried and true BROWN SUGAR ICING or PENUCHE ICING, I have checked Farm Bell and didnt find anything. I know we are not supposed to post recipes on the blog but if you have a recipe or can direct me to a site that has one that you have made, I would be most grateful. 

                                         Thank you.

 I bake a lot of pies and use fresh fruit when I have it, but I also use canned fillings most of which I don't really care for. Last week when I was at Krogers I purchased a can of their own brand of "Extra Cherry" filling. Amazing! So much better than any of the national brands I have used, I have since purchased the peach and strawberry filling and have just taken a stawberry pie out of the oven. The cans have a lot of filling, not just "gluey" filler. I hope they continue to carry the filling at our local store, I plan to stock up for Winter.

I tried out a new banana cake recipe that was posted on facebook.  We'll have a taste test later on.

Joelle, I use their(Kroger) strawberry pie filling in a salad/dessert thing.

I made a Dutch baby for the first time today. The kids loved it. 

 

As a sidenote, it looks like the forums aren't very active anymore. I have been gone awhile and maybe I'm not looking in the right places but most of the "recent" posts aren't that recent. Is it really slower now or is it just me?

happy-flowerGot up earlier than usual this morning to bake bread, it was so warm and humid I baked in the basement oven as not to warm the house. It has been so warm and muggy this week and T-storms expected much of the day. I have been sitting and making notes of all the things I want to cook when it gets cooler chili, vegetable soup, stew, chicken and noodles, french onion soup and the list goes on. I just want cooler days and nights. But for now we enjoy tomatoes, peppers and squash, I guess every season has it "good stuff".

       A nice cool morning here so I decided to bake a cake, I have some cake mix that need to be use, I made a white cake but forgot to use the whites only so it will be a light yellow cake with a almond and coconut frosting. I enjoy baking from scratch but have no problem with mixes, always doctor them, but love using them.

Not baking here.  Need to clean the stove.  Had to put in a new range vent hood and I have been on a cleaning spree.  Didn't realize on greasy, grimy the walls and decorations had gotten, Ugh.  Really should wipe down more often than I do.

 A cold ,rainy, windy day here, but no complaints. A good day to bake. We need some fresh bread, so that is in the rising stage and then a pan of brownies for later this evening.

                  Please pray for the victims of Harvey and give what you can towards the relief, so matter how little it might be, it is more than a lot of folks affected have now.

                                       Thank you.

             

                   This morning I baked a pumpkin pie, made this house smell so go. Nice cool morning.

 Very cool here this morning 44 degrees, love it! Made pastry earlier for apple turnovers made from apples from our orchard. The apples were not real big because we don't spray, but they are very good----ask the deer.

 This  morning I baked a small Milk Pie aka poor man's pie. It is sort of a fore-runner of sugar cream pie. I found the recipe in an old Penn. Dutch cookbook that was given to me over 50 years ago. When there was left over pie crust, it was rolled out and fitted into a pan, then filled with a mixture of milk, sugar and some flour, baked until it is mostly set. The filling is not as thick as a custard or sugar cream pie.
