Little Susie Home Makers Best Peach Cobbler Recipe and tutorial

My easy to make Peach Cobbler is always a huge hit with my family and friends. It is so easy to make! You will love the smell as it is baking! I just had to share my recipe with lots of pictures for a tutorial that will have you baking in no time! Little Susie Home Maker's Peach Cobbler  1 stick butter (1/2 cup) 2 cups sugar 2 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon cinnamon  2 cups milk 1 large or 2 med cans sliced peaches 2 tablespoons brown sugar The first thing you want to do, is put the stick of butter into your oblong baking pan. Then place in center rack of oven, then turn the oven on to preheat to 350* F. The butter will begin to melt in the baking pan.  Next, mix the sugar, flower, baking powder, cinnamon and milk in a large mixing bowl, into a batter.

Ride Through the Country with Bear

Yippie! I get to ride in the car! Would you like to tag along on a ride through our country side with, Bear and I? He and I enjoy our ride to his groomer every month. Jumping in the front seat, Bear is ready to go sight seeing along the way! So, I thought that I would take along the camera this trip and share what a pretty little ride it is to her place from our house.Bear has really pretty soft long hair, and he has a very nice groomer. She bathes and cleans him up every four weeks. Bear loves to go for his grooming.  We see lots of beautiful and interesting things along the way. It was foggy this morning. The horses in the mist looked so pretty, don't you think?  A near by street corner, have to take this picture of the mailboxes. After, I drop off Bear, I pass the General Store. Okay, this is when I go home and wait for my call to pick Bear back up, usually about 2 hours. After I go to pick Bear up, the fog has burned off.  Bear is so excite

Vintage 50's Meatloaf Recipe

Do you like meatloaf? Today I want to share a recipe with you from one of my favorite cookbooks. This is a Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. It is missing the copyright page, but from researching on the web, I believe it to be 1950's. It has some pretty fun artwork, and fabulous content. I have had this cookbook for several years now. I found it one day at a local Goodwill store. I just adore it. Inside there is a penciled star from a previous owner on a recipe that I figure, must have been a favorite. What I want to share today is the  Everyday Meat Loaf 2/3 c. dry bread crumbs 1 c. milk 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef 2 beaten eggs 1/4 c. grated onion 1 t. salt 1/2 t. sage dash of pepper Oven  350* Soak breadcrumbs in milk: add meat, eggs, onion, and seasonings; mix well. Form in individual loaves; place in greased muffin pans. Cover with Piquant Sauce* (page 348). Bake in moderate oven (350*) 45 minutes. Makes 8 servings. Or form o

Crochet Camera Pouch & I won a book!

 Hello and bless you! I have been enjoying a super busy week after the Easter Holiday. This weekend while driving to another town for a family gathering, I brought along my yarn and hook. I wanted to make a little strapped camera pouch that I could easily carry and get my camera in and out of. So I took some bright and cheerful yellow cotton worsted yarn and started working away. Here is what I made.  I wanted a long enough strap to carry easily over my neck. Just a small pouch that easily holds my camera. There is enough room for my cell phone as well! I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Everyone like it as well. I just made up my own pattern as I went. It was one continuous yarn project and I never ended up cutting any yarn until the last knot I tied at the end. I incorporated the strap and slip stitched the sides. I love this better than the store bought camera cases.  It is much cuter, and really makes my camera accessible! I took these pictures

Easter Egg Decorating Family Fun

Today I was out in the Little Red Barn gathering eggs. I again realized that I am so thankful for such beautiful fresh daily nutrition. These eggs that my hens lay daily are such a big blessing to my family. We cook them up so many different ways. They are scrambled, fried, or we bake with them. We add them to soup, etc.. and one of my favorite is to boil them. This time of year so many people are boiling eggs, and decorating them. Many families take place in this  annual tradition. It has always been fun for my family to decorate the boiled eggs before Easter. For us, I think it is the artsy crafty side of my family that just loves this activity. Source We use the basic food coloring recipe on the box of the food coloring bottled in the 4-pack from the grocery store. That is my favorite method. It is simple and inexpensive and fun to mix! There are just so many color combinations from the drops! We get out crayons, and rubber bands, and cotton swab brushes! An

Crochet Dishcloths

  I had the most wonderful visit this weekend with my parents.  The kids were thrilled when Grandpa and Grandma came for a visit.  My dear Momma is always a person that brings a gift!  She brought me these beautiful dishcloths.  She has been working on them and made quite a few colorful cloths.  Aren't they just so pretty? I really love all the colors. I also like the texture from the ribbing. I think these are so pretty, that I will find them hard to use on dishes!  But she says, "Don't save them. Use them!" Oh, thank you Momma for these pretty little crochet dishcloths! I just love them! I just wanted to share my blessings with you to enjoy!
