Crumb Coffee Cake (Judy Bingham)

I’m not sure why I never posted this recipe. I borrowed the cards from my friend Pauline when I started up this website. At the time, I had a nice little chat with her mom Judy when I returned them to their house. Judy has since passed, and this is a nice reminder of the … Continue reading

Impossible Zucchini Quiche

Here we go with another “impossible” recipe. I’m sure the motivation was to challenge home cooks to see if the recipe truly was impossible. Or maybe just being ironic. Was that a thing back then?

  While I’m positive English muffins existed before the 1980s, I recall a specific marketing push that made them seem “new” to my youthful experience at that time. There were all sorts of brands and varieties, some with nooks and crannies, some with raisins, some plain. I have loved them ever since, and if we … Continue reading
