JUDITH’S AUSSIE BITES (with product review)

This feels like a celebration and I have been saving today’s post for just this special occasion.  Omnia…you know those genius stove top oven folks?…well, they sent me one of their new products to try out.  The Muffin Ring…I’ve just finished using it for the first time and I absolutely LOVE it! The design is really very smart.  Silicone construction, which makes clean up a […]

JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

What perfect timing for this next Friends’ Faves recipe.  Here on the east coast, temps have started dropping and I have so many green tomatoes that will never ripen in their current place on the vines.  Entering onto my galley scene –  Green Tomato Loaf. If you want some point of reference the results are similar to zucchini cake….all moisty and tasty.  The perfect touch […]

GRAMMA’S CHRISTMAS THIMBLE COOKIES

No lengthy write-up for this post this time, Galley Peeps.  Just to say that my Mom used to make these cookies every year around Christmas time.  She made a lot of delicious sweets…at lot!  These aren’t by far the fanciest of Mom’s but I can bring back those special memories just by biting into one…all short bread and buttery with a little crunch of corn […]

RHUBARB CAKE

 Here you go my Galley Peeps, the fifth and final rhubarb recipe…although we can’t seem to get enough of this final one.  So rich and dense…not too sweet….the perfect snacking cake. I have a little confession though.  Ours wasn’t totally rhubarb.  I’ve recently discovered that a vile weed, almost alien-like, that has overtaken part of our garden, is actually edible.  Apparently Japanese Knotweed with its […]

EASTER TRIFLE

Easter dessert this year started with a feed of muffins…all lemony and gingery.  Not too sweet.  Just right. (Recipe here)   Cut into little chunks they made the base for our sweet treat.  And the great thing about this dessert was that each component could be enjoyed separately.  A little muffin with our morning coffee for example. The crème anglaise, made with Bird’s Custard Powder […]

Super easy to throw together once all the ingredients were gathered.  Dry ingredients all stirred or sifted to make sure there […]
