Grilled Buttermilk Chicken

September 5, 2010 | By andrea | Comments Off on Grilled Buttermilk Chicken | Filed in: Chicken, Grilling/BBQ, Kid-friendly, Main Dish, Recipes.

Since we still have a few more prime grilling weeks left before the cooler weather of Autumn sets in, I thought I’d share this recipe for Grilled Buttermilk Chicken. The simple marinade not only tenderizes the meat but gives it a light lemon and dill flavor. Plan ahead so the chicken can marinate for at least a few hours. • Read More »

Blueberry-Lemon Cornmeal Cake

August 19, 2010 | By andrea | 5 Comments | Filed in: Baking, Breakfast, Cakes, Dessert, Recipes, Summer.

Blueberries and lemon…I love the flavor combination! This easy-to-make cake highlights this beautiful summer berry in a delicious way! The addition of cornmeal adds a little texture without making the cake heavy or gritty. I took the Blueberry-Lemon Cornmeal Cake to a recent dinner gathering along with a Raspberry-Peach Cake. I guess our friends liked the cakes because there • Read More »

Oatmeal Muffins

December 2, 2008 | By andrea | Comments Off on Oatmeal Muffins | Filed in: Baking.

I love muffins of all varieties, and these Oatmeal Muffins are no exception. Their moist texture and delicious flavor more than make up for their rather pedestrian looks.  There’s a little planning involved in making this recipe because the oats need to soak in the buttermilk for an hour. Once the oats have had their buttermilk bath, the • Read More »

Since we’re well into Autumn, I decided to try a new pumpkin bread recipe that I found on finecooking.com, one of my fave cooking websites. The recipe gives you the option of making four mini loaves, one large loaf or one bundt cake (and the baking times that each one takes). I chose to make the mini • Read More »
