My garden window easily changed from Halloween to Thanksgiving! My mom made the turkey for me years ago. Actually, it's plaster and mom painted it for me.
Speaking of my mom, there is nothing more comforting than walking into Mom's kitchen and seeing her wearing an apron and running her Kitchenaid:
When I was little, my mom used to bake every single day! If it wasn't cookies, it was bread, if not bread, cupcakes and if it wasn't cupcakes, it was mom's yeast coffee cake! The house always smelled like a bakery!
This is what mom was making yesterday:
This is a Pumpkin Gingerbread Triffle recipe by Paula Deen. You can find the recipe here at Food Network.
And here are the Molasses Muffins that I talked about this week:
I have a weakness for anything with molasses in it! I love the way it makes the house smell! Here's the recipe:
MOM'S MOLASSES MUFFINS
1/2 cup Shortening
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Molasses
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 cup Sour Milk (or Buttermilk)
2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Raisins
Cream shortening and sugar, add beaten eggs and molasses. Sift flour and spices, beating alternately with baking soda and sour milk. Add raisens. Bake about 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until done. Makes one dozen muffins.
I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
